1. Meghan Trainor

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Date: June 21st from 8 am – 9 am
Location: Rockefeller Plaza

Believe it or not but Meghan Trainor independently wrote, recorded and produced three albums between the ages of 15 and 17. She then signed a record deal with Epic Records and went on with debuting her hits songs, “All About That Bass” and “Lips Are Movin” among others as a great kick start to her career!

2. Macklemore and Ryan Lewis

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Date: June 23rd from 8 am – 9 am
Location: Rockefeller Plaza

If you are planning on seeing Macklemore and Ryan Lewis this summer, expect it to be packed! The viewing is on a first-come, first-served basis and generally the concerts happen rain or shine. So plan and wake up early for a chance to see this hip hop duo.

3. Rachel Platten

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Date: July 1st from 8 am – 9 am
Location: Rockefeller Plaza

The voice behind one of the most popular anthems “Fight Song”, Rachel Platten will be performing this July as part of the Citi concert series. She is said to be one hell of a performer with incredible stage presence and a plethora of energy during every one of her shows.

4. Milky Chance

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Date: July 1st from 1 pm – 2 pm
Location: Surf Lodge

Right after Rachel Platten, you might as well hit the Surf Lodge for a chance to see Milky Chance! The incredible duo first met on the first day of eleventh grade and immediately clicked. They’ve been making music ever since then!

5. Shawn Mendes

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Date: July 8th from 8 am – 9 am
Location: Rockefeller Plaza

This Canadian musician started off building his fandom on Vine and eventually grew so big that he caught the attention of important people and landed a record deal! With good looks, angelic voice and a strong fandom, somehow I doubt this is just his fifteen minutes of fame.

6. Sia

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Date: July 22nd from 8 am – 9 am
Location: Rumsey Playfield Central Park

From my experience, there are only a few people who don’t enjoy a little bit of Sia on their playlist. Let’s be honest, with a powerful voice like hers it’s hard not appeal to every music taste. So if you’re a fan of her work, here’s your chance to see your favorite artist!

7. DNCE

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Date: August 29th from 8 am – 9 am
Location: Rockefeller Plaza

Joe Jonas’ new hipster band has been blowing up like crazy lately and it caught us by no surprise. The band produces catchy, fun and very summer-esque hits that are hard to resist. “Cake by the Ocean”? “Toothbrush”? Yeah, we all know them!

8. Alicia Keys

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Date: September 2nd from 8 am – 9 am
Location: Rockefeller Plaza

Alicia Keys is hands down one of the most talented R&B artists and while she might have been more popular in the early 2000s. She is bringing it back with a hypnotic new single “In Common”, which she’ll probably be performing at her concert on September 2nd.
