GTA Online is holding a Vespucci Beach Party event in-game, starting today. It’s a social club playlist event, following the release of Rockstar’s free Beach Bum DLC pack.

In a press release sent to VG247 today, Rockstar confirmed that a new playlist of jobs will be made available starting today, November 22, right through to November 24. You can engage in activities on the Los Santos beachfront, including new sea racing, parachute drops, team deathmatch events and more.

The best performing players on the event playlist for each platform will receive a limited vanity license plate for their GTA Online ride. There’s also frequent crate drops in Free Roam mode, which contain double RP, special weapons, bonus GTA$ and clothing.

The full list of events is as follows:

View of Vespucci (Parachute) – Show some Vespucci beach bums the true meaning of ‘spaced out’ with this steep parachute descent from 2980ft. See how many checkpoints you can hit before opening your ‘chute.

Up the Creek (Bike Race) – Dirt bike point to point going along Cassidy Creek and ending at the Alamo Sea. Shred from gravel and pavement to the beachfront and try to trump the rest for fame and fortune.

Water Rings (Sea Race) – A challenging and scenic boat race weaving around the islands North of Paleto Bay. Tip: Look out for a ramp to help you get one over on your competitors.

Vespucci Beachfront (Team Deathmatch) – Stop the gentrification of Vespucci Beach dead in its tracks with this Team Deathmatch around and on top of the businesses along the beachfront.

Grass Route II (Race) – In this sequel to the original popular Grass Route Race, go off-road in an epic heat starting on the North bank of the Zancudo River through the treacherous wetlands with a triumphant finish on the beach in North Chumash.

Sundae Driving (Bike Race) – Sure to be a new fan-favorite motorbike race, menace Vespucci Beach on your two-wheel rocket, taking breakneck corners as you try and best the competition.

Procopio Beach (Team Deathmatch) – Home to an infamous truck stop, Procopio Beach has long been known as a place where people come to blow off steam, and this Team Deathmatch along the shoreline at the foot of Mt. Gordo is no exception.

Gone Coastal (Sea Race) – Hug the coastline, pull off some breakneck turns and leap over treacherous rocks and islets in this rough race that starts in the LS River and takes you through the Palomino Highlands on the East Coast.

Turn the Tide (Race) - In this off road Race along the coast, up to sixteen speed demons leg it out across Procopio Beach and the North coast down through Paleto State Beach to Paleto Cove.

The Cove (Parachute) - Enjoy the stunning vistas as you rapidly descend towards Paleto Cove by Mount Chiliad… but not so much that you forget to open your chute. Prepare for a long free fall from 7500ft, weaving and diving between checkpoints and the drop zone.

Here’s the event flier in visual form. Enjoy!
