Alternative Rock your music of choice? Combine it with the beautiful beach and you’ve got a made-for-you combination with a visit to Panama City Beach. Stages are being set on the amazing sugar white sands for the adult-alternative rock event, SandJam Music Festival, taking place April 26-28, 2019, at Panama City Beach’s M.B. Miller Pier. Revel in the fever of the music brought by the same producers of Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam and SpringJam—three days of it—live and in person from some of America’s best alternative rock bands.
2019 SandJam Lineup
The SandJam 2019 lineup is impressive: You’ll hear headliners Kings of Leon, Third Eye Blind and Young The Giant. Then, more than 20 additional acts are scheduled to perform for you on two massive stages over the three days. Each day of SandJam 2019 headliners will be joined by favorites such as Cold War Kids, Blackberry Smoke, Anderson East, Kongos, Max Frost, Next Wave Finalist, JJ Grey & Mofro, Yeasayer, Alice Merton, The Shadowboxers, Brandon “Taz” Niederaurer, Them Dirty Roses, Heritage, Matt and Kim, Coin, Parachute, We The Kings, The War and Treaty, Kirstie Lovelady, Next Wave Runner and Welles.
At this large-scale music festival, the artists alternate from one stage to the other. So, you’ll experience very little down time between acts, and music will be virtually non-stop over the three days. You can be one of the 20,000 music lovers projected to descend on Panama City Beach as the M.B. Miller Pier is transformed into a lively, fun music venue.
