Winter Meltdown – The 2014 Event
The most highly anticipated music event of the season will be happening
again in Norfolk, Virginia, the celebrated home of the best local radio station 96x FM – the station that has been leading
the charge in modern rock in the Hamptons ever since its inception. Get your tickets and your best concert buds and get ready
for a truly amazing event in a vibrant city of fun and rich culture that is unparalleled among cities along Chesapeake Bay.
Make the most of the incredible variety of entertainment, arts, nightlife and music that only one of the most hip and historic
waterfront cultural centers in the United States can provide. Before you and your friends head on over to the exciting Winter
Meltdown event of 2014, be sure to check out the Mermaid Winery – the first among urban wineries in the state –
or the world-famous and unquestionably elegant Chrysler Museum of Art where you can see real-life glass blowing. Within the
diverse and distinguished city of Norfolk, you can enjoy the harbor and countless rivers in whatever way you please –
from the view of your hotel room, on a relaxing sail boat, or with adrenaline-pumping water sports.
If you would prefer
to spend more of your time crunching through the snow in a winter wonderland, Norkfolk, Virginia can provide that too. The
winter season sees the city's multitude of beautiful parks blanketed in pure white snow that enhances any holiday feelings.
Be sure to trek through the spacious and beautiful scenery of the Norfolk Botanical Garden, Town Point Park, or through the
grounds of St. Paul's Church. A number of historically rich museums are available for the viewing of more culturally-inclined
visitors, such as the Moses Meyers House, the Hunter House Victorian Museum, or the Hampton Roads Naval Museum. Whether you
are dining at one of the panoply of gourmet restaurants and funky diners, pre-partying at some of the most happening bars
and clubs, or winding down with a stroll through the scenic streets, the city of Norfolk will always provide a stimulating
experience that can be matched only by the excitement and amazing tunes of the Winter Meltdown concert event itself.
About Winter Meltdown
The 96X FM Winter Meltdown will once again be held at the elegant, spacious, and state
of the art Ted Constant Convocation Center on Hampton Boulevard. This incredible space contains no less than 9,100 seats and
is found on the gracious Old Dominion University campus. The establishment would be added to Norfolk's plethora of premier
music venues in 2002. The Ted Constant Convocation Center is part of a University Village project that involves a number of
shopping and restaurant establishments that provide a convenient complement to your Winter Meltdown concert experience.
from Chicago, Illinois, the fast and furious outfit Rise Against will be bringing their best vitriol and punk power chords
as well as truly sweeping melodies and irresistible choruses. The hardcore band is perhaps best known for their rousing hit
songs "Re-Education (Through Labor)," ""Savior," and "Help Is On The Way."
Next on the billing is Provo, Utah natives
Neon Trees. This slick quartet would kick off the decade with a number of insanely catchy indie pop, dance, and new wave hits
that have earned them comparisons to Bloc Party and the Killers. Neon Trees' hit singles include "Everybody Talks" and "Animal."
is an exciting addition to the evening. This trio of sisters from the San Fernando Valley in California has developed a pop
and rock sound that blends synth styles from the 'eighties and Fleetwood Mac. Their band moniker is simply the sisters' surname,
and they would explode on the rock scene in 2006 after a stint in a family band entitled Rockinhaim and a childhood steeped
in Motown, Santana, the Beatles, and Joni Mitchell.
Banks, the unique and highly idiosyncratic performing identity of
Californian Jillian Banks, first entered the music scene with her video uploads in the early part of 2013. By the end of the
year, her Massive Attack- and Fiona Apple-inspired musical output would gain her so much traction in the contemporary music
scene that she would be an opener for the Weeknd.
Rounding out the roster is Bleachers, a project centered around Jack
Antonoff, the guitarist from quintessential power pop ground Fun. The rest of the members of the band are part of Antonoff's
other band Steel Train which predates Fun. Their first hit single is "I Wanna Get Better."
96X FM Winter Meltdown event is famous across the United States for attracting the very best in chart-topping rockers for
their lineup. The 2011 Winter Meltdown would feature bands like Sleeper Agent, Grouplove, Young the Giant, the Naked and Famous,
Cage the Elephant, Foster the People, Bush, Taking Back Sunday, and Cake. In 2012, Winter Meltdown would secure the likes
of the Last Bison, Atlas Genius, Imagine Dragons, Of Monsters and Men, and Fun. Last year saw an even hotter Winter Meltdown
billing of groups like MS MR, New Politics, the Neighbourhood, Capital Cities, and Fall Out Boy. The 2014 Winter Meltdown
lineup is looking even brighter, so be sure to mark this concert on your calendar!
