The 93.3-FLZ Jingle Ball returns in a couple of weeks, but you don't necessarily need a ticket to enjoy some of the fun.
The station is once again bringing a free pre-show to the plaza outside Amalie Arena before the show on Dec. 16. This year's lineup includes South Florida rapper Jake Miller, Big Time Rush's Logan Henderson, YouTube singing sensation Alex Aiono and alt-pop singer-songwriter Taylor Grey.
Miller and Henderson (with Big Time Rush) are both Tampa Jingle Ball veterans, but it'll be the first time for Aiono and Grey.
The event takes place in the late afternoon before the Jingle Ball starts at 7 with performances by Zedd, Nick Jonas, Liam Payne, Camila Cabello, Charlie Puth, All Time Low, Why Don't We and Sabrina Carpenter. Tickets start at $26. Click here for details.
In other Jingle Ball news, Zedd has announced he'll be playing a post-show party at the Ritz Ybor alongside Cedric Gervais. That show kicks off at 10 p.m.; tickets are $30 and up. Click here.
