The year’s Kiss the Summer Hello concert, presented by Kiss 98.5 FM, takes over Coca-Cola Field at 6 p.m. Saturday. For the first time in the event’s history, audience members will have the opportunity to meet the acts during meet-and-greet sessions throughout the day.
This year, as ever, the roster is packed with current Top 40 hitmakers who run the stylistic gamut from boy band pop to hip-hop, contemporary R&B to electronic dance music.
Scheduled to appear at this year’s concert are former “X Factor” contestants Emblem 3; Canadian rapper/producer Classified; pop songstress (and “Vampire Diaries” star) Kat Graham; Sky Blu, who is famous as one half of the party-dance outfit LMFAO; teen pop/hip-hop up-and-comer Jake Miller; pop/hip-hop duo MKTO; and producer/DJ trio Jump Smokers, known for remixes for Rihanna, Selena Gomez and Usher.
Tickets range from $25 for reserved grandstand seating to $40 for general admission on the field (tickets.com).
