The first ever Billboard Hot 100 Music Festival is coming our way soon and we now know which of our favorite artists will be playing the huge show. The list is pretty big and we will get into it some below. The festival hits New York’s Nikon at Jones Beach Theater (and the surrounding beach area) August 22-23. It should be a blowout.
In addition to the main stage performances there will also be two other stages nearby setup for other Hot 100 performers. One of these stages will be setup on the beach, so this is just another reason why you don’t want to miss this event.
The Billboard Hot 100 Music Festival will be produced by Billboard (obviously), but they have partnered with Live Nation to put together this not to be missed event. The Festival is presented by MasterCard, Sour Patch Kids, Nordstrom Rack and SinfulColors. A pre-sale, presented by MasterPass by MasterCard, starts July 13. Citi MasterCard cardmembers who use Citi Wallet connected to MasterPass will earn exclusive access before tickets become available to the public. So if you are a Citi MasterCard member congrats.
Tickets for the general public go on sale July 16 at 10 a.m. ET. You will find available tickets at Live Nation.
“It’s an honor to be able to extend the Billboard brand into the festival space, and we feel that Jones Beach is the perfect location to create something truly unique and unforgettable,” says Billboard co-president John Amato.
“The Hot 100 Music Festival will be one of those truly memorable summer concert events. We are very excited to bring fans some of summer 2015’s chart toppers in a venue that will showcase the best these artists have to offer,” says Live Nation President and CEO Michael Rapino.
