Clear Channel Media and Entertainment, Macy's and ARTISTdirect congratulate The Summer Set, an awesome Scottsdale, Arizona based pop rock band, on winning the second Macy's iHeartRadio Rising Star Campaign. The Summer Set will now have the opportunity to perform alongside music's biggest stars at this year's iconic two-day iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas on September 20 and 21.
Congrats to the boys on the big win!
The Summer Set released Legendary on April 16.
Last year, Clear Channel radio listeners, iHeartRadio fans and Macy's shoppers cast more than two million votes for their favorite up-and-coming artists. This year, fans tripled their participation, surpassing six million votes across the country and crowning The Summer Set as the 2013 Macy's iHeartRadio Rising star. The campaign also featured five in-store performances by the Top 5 finalists where hundreds of fans flocked to Macy's stores to see live performances of the must-hear breakout artists of 2013.
"It's such a surreal dream come true," said Brian Dales of The Summer Set. "Entering this competition was unlike anything we've done in our career and I still have a hard time believing we won. Legends (The Summer Set's fans) are the best fans in the world for coming together in support of this moment. I'm so excited to see all the doors this may open and I want to say thanks to Macy's, iHeartRadio and Fearless Records. Here's to the future.
In addition to performing alongside major music stars at the iHeartRadio Music Festival, The Summer Set will kick-off their victory celebration with special performances during this summer's Macy's Passport presents Glamorama® events.
Macy's iconic high-fashion and entertainment extravaganzas feature the latest fashion from the hottest designers, show-stopping dance, visuals and staging, as well as incredible musical and other performances. Macy's Glamorama this year is themed "Fashion in a New Light," and will highlight the mystery and magic of illumination. Summer Set will open the shows on August 2 in Minneapolis and August 9 in Chicago, followed by two shows in late September slated for Los Angeles and San Francisco.
