Talk about an eclectic line up! We have just learned that Dutch trance music producer and DJ, Armin Van Buurin, has joined the 2013 iHeartRadio Jingle Ball line up; a roster that includes none other than twerk star, Miley Cyrus, X-Factor's Fifth Harmony, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Fall Out Boy, and more musical stars from all over the genre map. The event will also be televised for the first time ever! Catch it on the CW Network as a two-hour nation wide broadcast on December 18 at 8pm, eastern time.
For those unfamiliar with it, the Jingle Ball is an annual fiesta, put on by Clear Channel Radio, in order to celebrate the holiday season. And this year, on December 11, 14, the show will welcome one of our favorite DJ's, Armin Van Buuren, as it tours Atlanta, NYC, and Miami, respectively.
Tom Poleman, the President Clear Chanel Media and Entertainment, and producer of the ball, has stated, "Our Jingle Ball events reflect what's really special about our radio stations and the iHeartRadio digital platform - expert curation of the biggest superstars and the most promising emerging artists in music."
Furthermore, this year, Clear Chanel Media and Entertainment are partnering with the Ryan Secreast Foundation by giving $1 of each ticket sold to the non-profit, which is "decicated to inspiring today's youth through education and entertainment focused intiatives."
Presale for the Jingle Ball begins on October 16th at 5pm.
