Even though San Diego is always sunny, except when it randomly rains for 24 hours, people cannot wait for summer to hit. There’s just something about the word that immediately cheers people up. Well, Channel 933 knows how excited we all are for summer and is ringing it in with the Channel 933 Summer Kickoff Concert!
On Friday, May 11 at Cricket Wireless Ampitheatre, Channel 933 is hosting a huge event that will feature some of the biggest names in music and some that are sure to be huge in the upcoming year. Headlining the Kickoff Concert are Maroon 5, Flo-Rida, Wiz Khalifa, and Gym Class Heroes. Some of the lesser known names may be those of The Wanted, Dev, DJ Havana Brown, Chris Rene, and Karmin.
For anyone who keeps up on upcoming performers, Rene and Karmin should look familiar. From Santa Cruz, California, Chris Rene had applied to the first season of “The X Factor USA” with one of his original songs and ending up being one of the season’s finalists, finishing third overall.
Having taken a different route, Karmin, comprised of Amy Heidemann and Nick Noonan, became famous through the engaged couple’s exposure on YouTube. They posted many covers and became known for their clever renditions of Nicki Minaj’s “Super Bass,” and LMFAO’s “Party Rock Anthem,” among many others. They even found themselves as musical guests on a recent episode of “Saturday Night Live,” performing their original tracks.
With so many great bands, make sure to grab your ticket before it sells out! Going on sale on Friday, March 16 at 12 p.m., the prices range from $56 to $91. Of course, if you don’t have any luck through Live Nation, make sure to check out Craigslist.
If you were hoping to take your camera to snap some photos, feel free. Cricket Wireless Ampitheatre has no problem with your bringing a personal camera with you but unless you have prior approval, they do forbid flash photography, video and removable lens cameras.
So, regardless of the types of seats you end up getting, take some friends with you, a small blanket, and celebrate the beginning of summer by enjoying some of your favorite musicians!
