How do I receive my wristband?
Wristband packages begin shipping 3 to 4 weeks prior to the festival.

WRISTBANDS ARE NOT TO BE REMOVED. If a wristband is removed prior to the end of the festival, that individual will not be allowed re-entry. Wristbands must stay on the person at all times during the entirety of the festival weekend. No entry will be given to someone with a wristband that has been cut or tampered with. Wristbands are non-transferrable.

How can I receive a replacement band?
To receive a replacement, you must bring your current wristband to Will Call and pay a $25 replacement fee. Wristbands are packed by hand to ensure no band is too tight upon arriving to our fans.

Who do I contact if I have a question about my ticket purchase?
Please email info@gulfcoastjam.com and submit your inquiry. NO REFUNDS ON FESTIVAL TICKETS.

All tickets are non-refundable and rollover tickets are not permitted.

What happens if my wristband comes off?
Your wristband will not come off unless you take it off. It is a cloth material with a locking mechanism that ensures it will stay on your wrist until you cut it off. If you happen to remove your wristband, you will need to purchase a new ticket in order to be given a new wristband.

What is the re-entry policy?
As long as you are wearing your wristband, you can come and go as you please! (Any wristbands that are tampered with and/or cut will be refused entry at the gate.) 

You will be subject to a Security search each time you re-enter through the main gate.

Do you have single day tickets?
No. We will not have single day tickets.

Do you offer Military discounts?
Yes, the Military discount extends to active or inactive Military and their immediate family only. You must escort your family and present a Military ID and valid ID for each family member upon entry.  Military Tickets will grant you access to the festival grounds at Frank Brown Park. Military tickets can be purchased online or at one of our Military Ticket Locations. Military tickets do increase but at smaller price increments than other ticket types.

Do you offer First Responder or Medical Personnel Discounts?
Yes, the First Responder & Medical Personnel discount extends First Responders & Medical Personnel with an active badge, that clearly shows their position as a First Responder or Medical Personnel. If your badge does not have a photo, you must present a valid Government I.D. (with photo).  First Responder & Medical Personnel Tickets will grant you access to the festival grounds at Frank Brown Park. First Responder & Medical Personnel tickets do increase but at smaller price increments than other ticket types.

Why does Gulf Coast Jam use this policy?
Gulf Coast Jam strongly believes that the clear bag policy will enhance public safety and make festival access more efficient. This proactive measure will enhance safety inside and outside the festival and speed the security screening process for our patrons. The public deserves to be in a safe, secure environment. We constantly look for ways to enhance festival safety, and clear bags are part of best practices endorsed by security experts.

The clear bag policy has been adopted by the NFL, SEC and by many other venues that host entertainment events including college football games. This policy is certified by the Department of Homeland Security.

We thank you for your understanding and support.

How will this policy effect screening time and entry into the festival?
The clear bag policy should enable us to move patrons through our security check points much faster. A standard size clear bag eliminates the need for bag templates that measure bag sizes. It is our belief that this new policy will make the festival security screening process more effective and efficient for our patrons.

How many clear bags can patrons bring into the festival?
Each patron is allowed one large clear bag such as a one-gallon Ziploc style bag or clear plastic, vinyl or PVC bag that does not exceed 12″ by 6″ by 12″, plus a small clutch purse or fanny-pack.

Can patrons carry cameras, binoculars, smart phones or tablets separately from what they put in a clear bag?

Yes. All of these items can be carried into the festival so long as they are not in a bag or case. For example, while binoculars and point-and-shoot cameras are allowed, the binocular case or camera case is not allowed.

What happens if I show up at the gate with a bag that is not permitted?

You will be denied entry.

If I have items I need to bring into the festival for medical reasons and they don’t fit in the clear bag, what do I do?
We fully understand that exceptions need to be provided for in the policy for medically necessary items. To that, and to ensure proper inspection by security personnel, those patrons with medically necessary items will be directed to a designated area to allow for specialized screening and entrance into the festival.

Are purses prohibited?
No. The policy states that a small clutch purse, with or without a handle or strap, or a fanny-pack is permitted along with either the 12″ by 6″ by 12″ clear tote bag or the one-gallon freezer bag. This should enable our patrons to bring the same items into the festival they have in previous years. While we strongly encourage patrons not to bring any bags, we believe we have created a policy that appropriately balances the needs of our patrons with our obligation to provide for their safety.

Do I need to fit everything I’m carrying into a permissible clear bag?
No. We are only limiting the type of bags that can be carried into the festival, not the items you normally bring to the show. For example, patrons can continue to carry items in their pockets such as keys, makeup, feminine products, comb, phone, wallet, credit cards, etc. You may also carry a blanket over your arms, or items like binoculars around your neck or in your hands. You cannot, however, bring into the festival a binocular case.

Can I bring a diaper bag into the festival?
The answer to this question is one in which our safety and security team evaluated every option they could think of. They fully understood that not allowing a diaper bag into the festival would be a challenge for many of our patrons, including those with young children. To that, we are very sorry for any inconvenience that not allowing a diaper bag into the festival may cause.

For the venues that previously adopted a clear bag policy, they tell us their patrons with young children have been able to make a few adjustments to accommodate what they need.  By doing so, we hope to minimize disruption to parents and others with young children.

While we will continue to work hard to find acceptable alternatives, the global security threats we face every day make this new policy a safety imperative. To that, we respectfully ask that diapers be carried in an approved clear bag.
