The American Music Festival in Daytona Beach, Florida has just announced that Jonas Brothers, Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato, Justin Bieber, Carrie Underwood, Christina Aguilera, and Rihanna will all perform this summer at eight major concert events on the beach. And while one source claims the dates and performers have not yet been confirmed, we will predict that most (if not all) of the aforementioned acts will likely attend.
Daytona Beach appears to be very interested and committed to the idea. The proposal, after all, calls for even more major concerts in June, citing that the American Music Festival could expand to shows at the Ocean Center, Peabody Center, and even on Main Street. Daytona Beach has reported committed $125,000 to help promote the festival.
The city has given hundreds of thousands for music events before, with little return, however, the organization feels that they could receive a gigantic return on their investment this time around. ”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.”
