Here’s Your MixFest 2014 Lineup
The annual free concert in Boston will take place September 13 at the Hatch Shell.
MixÂ 104.1 has announced who will playÂ their free fall concert, MixFest, at the Hatch Shell inÂ September. The annual concert consistently brings topÂ artists to Boston for a day of family-friendly festivities. Last year, MixFest’s lineup starred Gavin DeGraw, the Backstreet Boys, and Of Monsters and Men.
This year, the station is bringing more big names to the Hatch Shell stage for their complimentary concert. YourÂ MixFest 2014 lineup:
You know him as the season 11 winner ofÂ American Idol. He plays guitar, and the ladies like it.
Four of the five members are from Rockville, Maryland, hence the title of their latest, The Rockville EP.
PerriÂ was first plucked from obscurityâ€”i.e. an everyday lifeâ€”when her ballad was used on So You Think You Can Dance.
They’re a Canadian reggae fusion band. TheirÂ debut single was the 2013 song “Rude!”
Kicking offÂ the concert will be whoever wins Mix 104.1’s 15 Seconds of Fame contest, which gives local contestants a chance to open for the established acts above.
Curiously not on the lineup? The Fray. The band bet on a Broncos-Patriots game last year and lost. The wager was for The Fray to perform at MixFest 2014. Hm, maybe next year.
MixFest 2014 takes place Saturday, September 13, at the Hatch Shell. Admission is free, but be warned:Â last year’s attendance was the highest ever, with fans lining upÂ down theÂ Esplanade.
