Back in 2015, the Billboard Hot 100 broke its way out of the charts of America and onto the stage when launching the first ever Billboard Hot 100 Music Festival. A late summer surprise to many, the festival was held on the weekend of August 22nd through 23rd at Nikon at Jones Beach Theater in Wantagh, New York featuring a stellar, diverse list of acts ranging from Jason Derulo, to The Weeknd, to New Politics, to Justin Bieber, just to name a few. A hit, music fans came from all over to visit the beachside Long Island venue to dance their troubles away. That is why it came as no surprise that the Billboard Hot 100 Music Festival returned to Jones Beach in 2016 to recapture the magic of 2015′s inauguration. This time taking over the same location the weekend of August 20th through 21st, the lineup included some of today’s biggest DJ’s, Pop, Hip Hop, and R&B artists. The threat of rain was not a deterrent as the parking lot at Jones Beach filled with music lovers who were ready to brave whatever mother nature had in store in order to see some of their favorite artists.
