DAYTONA BEACH — The inaugural American Music Festival at the Bandshell will star Janet Jackson, Usher, the Jonas Brothers, Rihanna, Christina Aguilera, Justin Bieber, Carrie Underwood, Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez.
After a week of teasing newspaper ads, aborted news conferences and a postponed ticket on-sale date, those acts were announced Friday by Manuel Bornia, president of the Community Cultural Foundation. The festival is being presented by the foundation, which also presents the Daytona Beach International Festival and its showcase act, the London Symphony Orchestra.
Newspaper ads previously trumpeted that tickets would go on sale today. However, Bornia said tickets will now go on sale May 29.
Bornia said there will be two rounds of concerts, one slated for June 25-27, and the other for Sept. 3-5. Aguilera, Lovatto and Gomez are scheduled to appear in June. The Jonas Brothers and Bieber are scheduled for September. The other artists will appear during one of those two weekends.
