PANAMA CITY, – COVID-19 has thrown two solid blows to entertainment in Northwest Florida this year. The first was delaying Gulf Coast Jam and with the announcement today from Panama City Beach’s City Council that they will not be issuing a permit to allow Sand Jam to occur. Sand Jam had headliners including The Killers, Shinedown, and AJR. The event originally scheduled for October 1-3, 2021, is now being moved to September 30-October 2, 2022.
Rendy Lovelady, executive producer issued a statement to our media partner WMBB saying, “We have got to get to a place where we can have a live event and not live in fear of what’s going on… I’m not saying I know the answer but we have to get there and we have to get there soon.”
If you have already purchased a ticket for this year’s festival and would like a refund, they will be issued in the next 14 days. More information can be obtained at sandjamfest.com
