Pop radio station 107.9 The End ups the ante for this year’s annual Endfest 2012 music festival with an effervescent roster of dance-music all-stars. Headliner Demi Lovato has always been somewhere on her audience's radar. When they were in kindergarten, she was a cast member on Barney and Friends; when they got to high school, she was sharing airwaves with the Jonas Brothers on the Disney Channel. In 2007, she also became a part of their soundtrack with the gold album Don't Forget. The young leading lady and judge on The X Factor commands powerful pipes, shifting seamlessly between throaty growls, soaring heights, and mournful rasps. Backed by flowing strings underlined by a thudding bass beat, her hit single “Skyscraper” stands as a soulful testament to resilience and confidence, and “All Night Long” draws on the bouncy songwriting skills of Timbaland and features a laid-back verse by Missy Elliott.
Although Adam Lambert got the silver medal on the eighth season of American Idol, his current success suggests he's the one that came out on top. His second album, Trespassing, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, and guitarist Brian May of the iconic band Queen asked him to assume the mantle of Freddie Mercury, a lung-busting task requiring a dynamic voice that can hit a rollercoaster of notes. Commanding the stage with intrinsic rock-god panache, Adam hypnotizes audiences with his bedroom eyes and a voice that prevents meteors from hitting earth.
YouTube phenom Karmin specializes in quirky covers of hit songs, such as Nicki Minaj's "Super Bass.” Irresistibly catchy original songs by the duo include "Take It Away," whose soaring chorus and fast-paced lyrics provided a score to 2011 NBA Finals commercials. Platinum-selling one-man band Owl City kicks off the shindig with pulsating synth-pop, riling fans with hits such as “Fireflies” and tracks from his new album, The Midsummer Station.
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
