About the Show:
WSPK-FM K104.7 and Bethel Woods Center for the Arts have once again partnered to bring KFest, the summer’s hottest concert, to Bethel Woods, located at the historic site of the 1969 Woodstock festival in Bethel, N.Y.
About 5 Seconds of Summer:
5 Seconds of Summer (5SOS) have unveiled their new single – “Want You Back” – their first new single in nearly two years. After 18 months on the road in support of their No. 1 sophomore album Sounds Good Feels Good, the band has spent the last year living, writing and recording their new album in Los Angeles, set for release through Capitol Records later this year.
“Finally… It’s been 3 years since our last album and we are so ready to share new music with the world,” 5SOS told fans. “After spending the last 5 years on the road since the age of 16, it was important we took time to reflect as individuals and now we’re coming back stronger and more unified than ever. These songs mean the world to us and we have held nothing back in writing and recording this album. We’ve been rehearsing a lot of the new songs live and can’t wait to get back out on tour to connect with our incredible fans.
Hailed as the “biggest new rock act in the world” by Rolling Stone, 5SOS is the only band (not vocal group) in history to see its first two full-length studio albums enter the Billboard 200 at No. 1. 5SOS’s self-titled debut album has sold more than three million units worldwide, with 1.5 million albums and more than 4.5 million single tracks sold in the U.S. alone.
2015’s Sounds Good Feels Good charted at No. 1 in 12 countries, including the U.S., the U.K. and Australia. “She’s Kinda Hot,” the album’s first single, topped the iTunes charts in 44 countries. The band has won an American Music Award, a People’s Choice Award, an iHeartRadio Music Award, five MTV European Music Awards, two ARIA Awards and an MTV Video Music Award.
About Big Boi:
Recently, the seven-time GRAMMY® Award-winning, RIAA diamond-certified musician Big Boi celebrated his third full-length solo album, BOOMIVERSE. The project features his latest single “In The South” featuring Gucci Mane and Pimp C as well as singles “Mic Jack” featuring Adam Levine and “Kill Jill” featuring Killer Mike & Jeezy. Big Boi previously unveiled the slick and sexy video, “Chocolate” featuring Trozé, to wide fanfare from media outlets and fans worldwide.
Big Boi's 2010 solo debut, Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty, bowed at #3 on the Billboard Top 200 and received unanimous critical acclaim with Pitchfork proclaiming it one of the "100 Best Albums of the Decade 'So Far'" and topping year-end lists from Time, Paste, Vibe, and more. His 2012 follow-up Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors enamored tastemakers and fans alike and boasted collaborations with A$AP Rocky, Killer Mike, Kid Cudi, and more. In 2015, Big Boi collaborated with Phantogram to create supergroup Big Grams. Their debut self-titled album was released to critical and fan acclaim.
One of history's tightest and most clever rhyme mavericks, Big Boi's indelible influence courses throughout two generations of rap music As one-half of OutKast, Big Boi has achieved seven GRAMMY® Awards, sold over 25 million albums, and created a string of music's most influential work, including Aquemini, Stankonia, Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik, and Speakerboxxx/The Love Below—which went RIAA Diamond and made the duo the first and only hip-hop artist in history to win the GRAMMY® for “Album of the Year.”
About Why Don’t We:
Since forming in October 2016, the members of rising dance-pop group Why Don’t We have enjoyed several moments they describe as “surreal,” including hearing their current single, “Something Different,” on Los Angeles’ influential radio station KIIS FM for the first time (and having social media star Logan Paul direct the song’s video), watching their latest EP, Why Don’t We Just, hit No. 1 on the iTunes Pop chart (besting albums by Harry Styles, Ed Sheeran, and Bruno Mars), and learning that their summer headlining tour sold out.
Strong audience engagement has undoubtedly fueled the group’s rapid rise. Why Don’t We has released three EPs, their 2016 debut Only The Beginning and this year’s Something Different and Why Don’t We Just — the latter peaking at No. 1 on Billboard’s Emerging Artist chart and No. 2 on its Heatseekers and Next Big Sound charts. The group’s music has racked up over 50 million YouTube views and over 35 million Spotify streams, and they’ve hit Spotify’s USA Viral Top 50 Artists chart. “Something Different,” an ode to individuality, has more than seven million Spotify streams alone. Plus, a comedic music video Why Don’t We appeared in with Logan Paul, “Help Me Help You,” has earned more than 87 million YouTube views. The activity led to major-label interest, with Why Don’t We recently signing to Atlantic Records. “We’ve got some big shoes to fill,” Jack says of the label’s illustrious roster of star pop acts, but I think we’re ready.”
About In Real Life:
The start for up-and-coming band In Real Life has been anything but traditional. After singing and dancing their way into America’s hearts on ABC’s reality competition series Boy Band, winners Brady Tutton, Chance Perez, Drew Ramos, Michael Conor and Sergio Calderon were signed as a group to Hollywood Records.
Brady Tutton suffered a severe stutter as a child and could barely speak, but his therapists discovered he didn’t stutter when he sang. Since then, he has fallen in love with music and is a classically trained opera singer. Chance Perez was on his way to becoming a fire fighter before going on the show, but gave that up to chase his dream of being a musician. Drew Ramos started out playing music on the subways in New York City as a way to make extra money and one day make his dreams of making it big come true. Michael Conor is a classically trained violinist who also happens to be an incredibly talented rapper, and brings a unique twist to the group. Last year, Sergio Calderon gave up playing soccer and his chance at a college scholarship in order to fully pursue music.
Together, the five guys come together to make up In Real Life. In addition to receiving a recording contract, BMI’s Pop Songwriter of the Year, Justin Tranter, wrote the band’s debut single “Eyes Closed.”
