Durden Outdoor Displays, Inc. partners with Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam

Durden Outdoor Displays, Inc. is excited to partner with Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam for the 5th straight year, bringing thousands of people to the beautiful beaches of Panama City Beach, FL. Festivalgoers travel from all across the United States not only for the country music but for the views of the most gorgeous beaches along the gulf coast as well. The three-day country music festival is scheduled for Labor Day weekend, September 1st thru 3rd this year.

Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam utilized a mix of 4-Week Rotary Posters and the Durden Digital Network to saturate our ten county service area to include Dothan, Troy, Eufaula, Ozark, Geneva and Enterprise markets to name a few. They were able to run top of the mind awareness ads to promote the festival early on in the campaign. This allowed them to pre-sale tickets and boost the hype for one of the largest country music festivals in the south. Once all artists were secured, they started running ads across both platforms announcing the stellar lineup for the festival. Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam will feature popular country music artists such as Luke Bryan, Little Big Town, Jason Aldean and many more. Tickets to Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam are for all three days and can be purchased HERE. Prices will increase as the festival gets closer so be sure to snatch up your tickets now for the best deal.
