Kickoff Jam, which was scheduled for Aug. 30 to Sept. 1 at Frank Brown Park, will no longer be taking place. Event organizers shared the following statement on social media and posted it on the music festival's homepage on June 7:

"After the success of Gulf Coast Jam this past weekend in Panama City Beach, we realized the weekend after Memorial Day is a much better time to host a festival. So, we are going to cancel Kickoff Jam and provide refunds."
