This year Southern Sound and Lighting ordered a custom roof skin for Gulf Coast Jam. This addition made the branding and overall look of the stage pop and allowed for a vibrant signage that cannot be achieved with blow through banners.

Gulf Coast Jam now offers Jammers 2 unique VIP experiences; the VIP Stages and VIP Sky Boxes. The VIP Stages is a 2 level experience that allows you to see on stage, behind stage and side stage. These perspectives give a unique view of the performers and allow guests to capture memorable pictures from the event.

The VIP Sky Boxes were new additions to GCJ this year. There were 10 Sky Boxes per side with a artist walkway that allowed them to interact and walk down the entire length of the Sky Box.

Southern Sound and Lighting provided the Main Stage, 60×48 with custom sized monitor worlds, a 48 foot cat walk, and covered loading dock areas. Gulf Coast Jam also had 3 video walls and rear delays.
