Billboard is presenting its first Hot 100 Music Festival on August 22nd and 23rd. It will take place at the Nikon at Jones Beach Theatre in Wantagh, New York. Like most festivals, you can buy a two-day pass or tickets for the individual days. Billboard keeps track of the top songs and artists throughout the year and is bringing many of them together for a great festival. Artists at the event include The Weeknd, Justin Bieber, Shrillex, Nicki Minaj, American Authors, and Lil Wayne. There are many more artists that will make an appearance on one of the three stages featured.
