Billboard Hot 100’s Lineup Is EDM Heavy (And We Love It!)
The Billboard Hot 100 Festival returns to Long Island on August 19-20 with an amazing, electronic-heavy lineup. I had a blast at this festival in 2015 and though I missed last year’s event, this lineup has me counting down the days until August.
Though technically an all-genres festival, with the increasingly strong presence of EDM in top 40 music, dance fans will be delighted to see some favorites at Billboard Hot 100 this year. House music superstar Zedd will headline the festival this year, as well as the moombahton collaborative Major Lazer. As all of you probably know, Major Lazer is comprised of Diplo, Jillionaire and Walshy Fire. And anything that involves Diplo is going to be performance to remember.
Progressive house DJ 3LAU (“Blau”) will also perform at Billboard Hot 100, as well as CHERUB, the electro duo with a ton of energy.
Rounding out the lineup this year is a host of well-known, exciting acts such as DJ Khaled, Capital Cities, T-Pain, Tinashe, Big Sean, and Wacka Flocka Flame.
Jones Beach Theater is an easy commute from New York City, and with the beach so close by you can even head to Long Island a little early to catch some sun and waves before heading over to the festival. The grounds are pretty small so it’s never a far walk to another stage or to grab a bite to eat, and the festival is totally family-friendly. If you’ve never been to a show at Jones Beach before, you must – the main stage is right on the water, providing for a spectacular view and a nice breeze to cool you down on a hot summer day.
Tickets are currently only in presale, but use code SOUNDCHECK to get them now! (We gotchu, fam). Regular on sale begins Monday, May 22nd, so stay tuned to the Billboard Hot 100 site for all the info. And see you at Jones Beach!
