The World's Largest Floating Music Festival, created in the fall of 2013 by Doug Gainey Promotions, is loosely based off of the ideas of the former “ReggaeFest” originally started by the Pirates of Lake Murray. Featuring an array of live music from several genres, this family-friendly, non-profit floating music festival is completely free to attend.

Most importantly, we proudly team up with the 9/11 Remembrance Foundation of SC to help their mission of providing aid for our first responders, military servicemen and women, and their immediate families. All sponsor proceeds go directly to supporting their cause.

Hundreds of boats and thousands of people from all over the country converge to enjoy the lake, sunshine, and music. A one-of-a-kind concert, with bands performing on a floating stage that is only accessible by water.

The festival takes place just off of Spence Island on Lake Murray, SC, one of the largest man-made lakes in the U.S. This annual event, now in it’s sixth year of production, is growing exponentially and gaining national attention.

​All funds received by Drift Jam - Flotilla Music Festival will be used to cover the operational deficit to produce the event and to activate the marketing & communications requirements of our sponsors. The surplus will be used to impact the charity selected by the board, and to fund our festival goals.

​Our festival goals are to raise awareness about our partner charity and to raise funds for our partner charity to help support our military service men and women, and their immediate families.
