Year-end radio festival season is nearly upon us. Monday, 93.3-FLZ announced the bill for its third annual Jingle Ball, slated for Dec. 11 at the St. Pete Times Forum in Tampa, and it's loaded with some of the biggest radio hitmakers of the past couple of years.
Rapper Pitbull (Give Me Everything), Irish rockers The Script (Breakeven) and megaproducer and DJ David Guetta (When Love Takes Over, Sexy B----) are three of the biggest pop names on the bill.
Tweens will go nuts for troubled Disney pop princess Demi Lovato and Nickelodeon boy band Big Time Rush. Joining them all will be R&B crooner Jason Derulo (Whatcha Say), Cobra Starship (Good Girls Go Bad) and acoustic pop duo Karmin (best known for their incredible, viral cover of Chris Brown's Look at Me Now) round out the bill.
And don't forget, in each of the past two years, there was at least one up-and-coming artist added to the bill, so keep an eye out for any late-breaking additions.
Tickets to the Jingle Ball went on sale to the station's Prize Pig members Monday, and will be available to the general public via Ticketmaster starting at 10 a.m. Saturday, starting at $29.33, and going up to $109.33 for Celeb Club access. But if you want the best deal in town, head to the St. Pete Times Forum box office starting at 10 a.m. Saturday, where a limited number of tickets will be available for just $9.33, with no fees (limit one per person).
