"This is definitely a show you don't want to miss," said Tim Bennett, Overtime Sports owner, who is hosting with Driven Entertainment what will be one of Flo Rida's first tour stops.

Also performing will be Gorilla Zoe and rising pop musician Natalie Rose whose hot songs for the summer were "Somebody" and "All Around the World."

Biloxi native and DJ/producer DJ Hyphee, will open up the show from the main stage.
