“Being able to produce the Gulfport Musical Festival and bringing so many well-known artists to the Gulf Coast for two days of music and fun while keeping our ticket prices affordable was our main goal for 2017,” said Alpha Media Vice President Ricky Mitchell.

“We are excited about the return of the Gulfport Music Fest to the City of Gulfport and Jones Park,” said Chris Vignes with the city of Gulfport. “We believe it is the perfect venue for events like this and its proximity to restaurants and nightlife gives fans easy access to both. This year’s lineup is sure to draw tens of thousands to our Mississippi Gulf Coast.”
