OAKLAND, Calif. -- July 31, 2015 -- Pandora (NYSE:P), the leading Internet radio service, announced today PANDORA SUMMER CRUSH, an end of summer celebration that will take place on August 15. The event will feature performances by superstars Jason Derulo and Fifth Harmony, and a D.J. set by the legendary Steve Aoki.
PANDORA SUMMER CRUSH will take place at the famed L.A. LIVE, the center of downtown Los Angeles' premier sports and entertainment venues. It sits between Staples Center, Microsoft Theater (formerly Nokia Theater) and The GRAMMY Museum where notable music events like The GRAMMY Awards, The American Music Awards, and the MTV Music Video Awards are held. As an extension of this celebration, Jason Derulo curated a special PANDORA SUMMER CRUSH mixtape available to Pandora listeners at http://pdora.co/summercrush.
Lars Murray, Pandora's SVP of Music Makers Group says, "For the second year in a row, we have a chart topper headlining PANDORA SUMMER CRUSH; Jason Derulo has a huge following on our platform with over 1 billion spins on Pandora. Fifth Harmony is also crushing it (pun intended) on the platform, and Steve Aoki needs no introduction, so we're expecting a large and happy crowd. We also might have a couple of surprises up our sleeve, so stay tuned."
With PANDORA SUMMER CRUSH, Pandora will bring music fans one of the top live events of the summer, all within a premier concert space featuring performances by Pandora's top trending artists. PANDORA SUMMER CRUSH is the latest example of Pandora connecting artists with fans, following the launch of the company's Artist Marketing Platform (AMP) late last year, the livestream of Jack White's sold out concert at Madison Square Garden in January and its partnership with AEG Live and The Rolling Stones to offer listeners exclusive pre-sale tickets for the band's ZIP CODE tour.
PANDORA SUMMER CRUSH attendees will be treated to custom activations from sponsors including: ACUVUE® Brand Contact Lenses, ASICS, Chevron Products Company, Dell, EuropaCorp's The Transporter Refueled, L'Oreal Paris Miss Manga Rock, Mentos, and Starbucks Frappuccino.
