Coastal Country Jam Returns with All-Star Lineup

The power of country music can be heard from coast to coast, so a beachside music festival seems only fitting for a genre with such nationwide appeal.

Coastal Country Jam is making its return to Long Beach, California, on September 16 and 17. Across multiple stages,  the two-day oceanside celebration will see an all-star lineup of headliners, featuring Blake Shelton and Tim McGraw. The roster also includes artists like Maren Morris, Dustin Lynch, Tyler Hubbard, Scotty McCreery, Flo Rida, Kidd G, and MacKenzie Porter.

“We are thrilled that Coastal Country Jam is making its triumphant return to Southern California, bigger and better than ever,” Coastal Country Jam founder Steve Thacher shared in a statement.

Taking place for the first time at Long Beach’s Marina Green Park, Coastal Country Jam will be a one-of-a-kind festival experience set against Pacific Ocean scenery. “Our new location is the perfect backdrop to welcome country music fans from all over for an incredible line up and ultimate beachside country music festival,” Thacher added.

Additional acts will be announced in the coming months. Tickets will be available on sale to the public on Friday (Mar. 3) at 10 a.m. Pacific.

This year has a lot in store for the artists on Coastal Country Jam’s lineup. Shelton embarked on his Back to the Honky Tonk Tour in mid-February. For his trek, Shelton has partnered with Propeller and Save The Music to help benefit underserved communities through music.

Fresh off of her own tour in support of the album Humble Quest, Morris is already gearing for a number of festival appearances. Meanwhile, Hubbard recently released his solo debut to much acclaim. Hip-hop star Flo Rida has begun to dip his toe into the country realm since his 2022 Jimmie Allen collaboration, “No Bad Days.” And new dad McCreery is currently experiencing life as a road parent on his ongoing Damn Strait Tour.

“A lot to look forward to going into 2023,” McCreery shared at the beginning of the new year ahead of his tour. “[We’re] bringing a baby on the road and getting him used to the lifestyle. Like it or not, [I’m] going to be a road daddy for a while, so hopefully he loves it.”
