The American Music Festival in Daytona Beach, Florida announced that Jonas Brothers, Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato, Justin Bieber, Carrie Underwood, Christina Aguilera, Rihanna and more will perform at eight major concert events this summer outside at the Bandshell on the beach.
After the major concerts in June at the Bandshell, it will expand to shows at the Ocean Center, Peabody Center and Main Street. Daytona Beach has committed $125,000 to promote it.
The city has given hundreds of thousands for music events before, with little return, but said the organization is different this time: ‘We’ve committed money to beer parties that had a music element involved. This is going to be the highest-quality music entertainment we can have.’
UPDATE: Concert dates/ performers have reportedly not been confirmed.
