2x Grammy-nominated and 4x RIAA Platinum artist Avicii, aka Tim Bergling, is one of the most acclaimed producers/songwriters/DJs working in music today.  His live shows are renowned for the creativity of their production value and Avicii's almost visceral bond with his audience. His first album TRUE sold close to 5 million copies worldwide, charted at #1 on iTunes in 84 countries, and boasted the fastest selling single in 2013, "Wake Me Up," which was streamed nearly 50 billion times.  His most recent album is STORIES, which has an aggregated sales of more than 1.5 million since its release and produced the new hit single "Broken Arrows" with Zac Brown

2x Grammy-nominated, platinum-selling pop, blues, and rock'n'roll singer Elle King is currently nominated for two Grammys for "Best Rock Performance" and "Best Rock Song" for her hit single "Ex's & Oh's" featured on her debut album LOVE STUFF. "Ex's & Oh's" scored the #1 spot on the Alternative Radio chart, making her the second female artist in 18 years to reach #1 at Alternative Radio. Elle also claimed the #1 spot on the AAA Chart and Hot AC radio chart.

Last year, Travis Scott's critically acclaimed full-length debut album, Rodeo [Epic Records/Grand Hustle], crash landed at #3 on the Billboard Top 200 and #1 on iTunes Overall Top Albums Chart upon release. The record's latest single "Antidote" has clinched #1 at Urban radio for the past four consecutive weeks. Recently certified RIAA platinum, it shows no signs of slowing down. Following his support stint on The Weeknd's fall The Madness Tour, the Houston-born singer, producer, performer, and rapper joins Rihanna on the upcoming Anti World Tour. He's recently given explosive performances on Jimmy Kimmel LIVE! and Late Night with Seth Meyers, while Rodeo drew praise from Rolling Stone, USA Today, Complex, and more.
