EVENT Recap: What You Missed Billboard Hot 100 Fest 2016

The 2016 Billboard Hot 100 Festival kicked off this past weekend via Live Nation and we were there to take in all the festivities. The two-day festival included over 40+ artists performing at the Nikon Theater at Jones Beach in Long Island, NY. There were a total of three stages hosting a slew of artists and DJ’s who made sure to keep the party rocking all day long. The Festival village included an endless path full of food, games, music and fun! Everywhere you looked people were enjoying the festival getting ready to see their favorite acts grace the stage!

There were a ton of performances on Saturday from Niykee Heaton, Wale, Rae Sremmurd, Hayley Kiyoko, Jahkoy, Fetty Wap, Ariana Grande and more. Sunday kicked off with performances by MadeInTYO, Nervo, Galantis, Funk Flex, Calvin Harris, J. Cole and much more. The crowds were completely insane when the artists hit the stage and this was by far the most exciting Festival of the Summer! The sponsors The Patch, L’oreal, 1800 Tequila, Cafe Bustle, MasterCard and W Hotels made the Festival extra sweet with complimentary food, merch and more. You can take a look at some images from the Billboard Hot 100 Festival weekend below.
