The Wild 100 Concert will include performances by:

Hot Chelle Rae

Before Hot Chelle Rae “fueled up the Jeep with bubbly elasti-funk and breezy hip-hop swagger” (as Entertainment Weekly put it) with their brand new single “I Like It Like That,” the Nashville-based quartet scored a bona fide breakthrough smash hit over the last several months with “Tonight Tonight.” Declared “one of the catchiest pop-rock anthems of the summer” by USA Today, “Tonight Tonight” crashed into the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, shot to No. 1 at Hot AC radio and was certified double-platinum in the U.S.

Austin Mahone

At just 16 years of age, singer/songwriter Austin Mahone is poised for stardom. Already making his mark on the scene, Mahone scored a hit on iTunes with his first original single, “11:11.” Not only does he have a solid fan base, known as “Mahomies,” but the teen sensation is gaining a legion of loyal fans in the media as well. He’s hot on the press trail stopping by high profile magazines such as Popstar!, which has featured him on their cover, as well as J-14, M, Astro Girl, Quiz Fest and Twist.

The Ready Set

The Ready Set’s debut album I’m Alive, I’m Dreaming was released in June 2010 and debuted at No. 3 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart. The JR Rotem-produced “Love Like Woe” made a splash on radio and sales charts across the country, hitting #15 on the Mainstream Top 40 airplay chart, #27 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart, and #18 on the Digital Songs Chart. The track has been certified platinum by the R.I.A.A.

Forever the Sickest Kids

On tour in the U.S. for the first time in 2012, pop-rock quartet Forever the Sickest Kids (FTSK) will be hitting some of their favorite cities in the Midwest and East Coast in July and August. In 2011, FTSK toured with Good Charlotte, Simple Plan, All-Time Low, Breathe Carolina, The Cab and more. The band spent time overseas playing shows in the UK as well as Japan and Australia earlier this year. The band is also busy writing and recording new songs.

Rebecca Black

Millions of people know Rebecca Black as the 14-year-old girl whose catchy first song "Friday" stuck in their heads. What they don't know about this teenager from Anaheim Hills, CA is that she has been performing since she was a toddler and is dedicated to a career in music. She recorded “Friday” and filmed a video to accompany the song, thinking only her family and close friends would see and hear it. The video went viral on YouTube within a month. Within a few short weeks, artists such as Nick and Joe Jonas Tweeted the lyrics and performed "Friday" in concert, as did Justin Bieber. Lady Gaga told a group at Google headquarters, "Rebecca Black is genius."  Rebecca released her second single “My Moment” and within the first 36 hours it had over six million views on YouTube.  She has since released her third single, “Person of Interest” and even performed her hit song “Friday” on stage with Katy Perry at Katy’s sold-out concert in Los Angeles.


Every so often a new artist comes along with a sound so innovative; he is able to help reshape the barriers that confine mainstream music. Meet Outasight, the Yonkers, NY bred musician who weaves together the cadenced sounds of popular hip-hop and indie rock with the poignant sensibility of classic pop and soul music to create a fresh, new sound that is all his own. Now with Warner Bros. Records, Outasight is getting ready to release his debut full length album in 2012.

Action Item

2012 is going to be their year. After releasing The Stronger the Love in 2010, these five boys from New Jersey are on track to be stars. Past tours with acts like Hot Chelle Rae, We The Kings, Allstar Weekend, Honor Society and more have made Action Item one of the most buzzed acts of this past year. Not to mention three singles on Radio Disney, the most recent being "Learn To Fly," which was produced by Nick Jonas.

Kicking Daisies

Teen rockers Kicking Daisies blend pop, rock and a whole lot of energy with stunning musical skills to sell out venues around the country and open for some of the biggest names in pop and indie rock. With breakout successes ranging from winning Disney's Next Big Thing Contest and a Billboard charting single, the gifted members of Kicking Daisies are setting their sights on stardom.
