This morning it was announced that Boyce Avenue and Walk the Moon will be performing at the event. Tickets will be $35 Dollars and will go on sale January 7th.

Boyce Avenue is primarily known for its covers on Youtube, which have racked up millions of views. They received extra attention from the THON community last year when their cover of Rihanna’s “We Found Love” was used in the 2012 Road To THON video.
