Forbes Under 30 music headliners revealed: Avicii and MMMBop band Hanson

This fall’s Forbes 30 Under 30 Summit in Philadelphia will have a touch of Avicii and a hint of MMMBop.

Conference organizers announced today that electronic pop artist Avicii, 90’s boy band Hanson and electronic violinist / YouTube star Lindsey Stirling will headline the October 6 event during the Forbes music festival. The headliners are also going to speak at the summit, joining the likes of singer Sara Bareilles, Mike Tyson and Barbara Bush, the daughter of George W. and Laura Bush.

According to Forbes, 8,000 free tickets will be distributed to Philadelphia residents after Labor Day — all you have to do to get one is register with Global Citizen “to take action in the fight against extreme poverty.” Beginning Friday, August 28 at 10 a.m., VIP tickets will be sold via Live Nation/ Ticketmaster at www.ticketmaster.com.

Last year, 1,500 people were invited to attend the Forbes 30 Under 30 Summit, and Forbes’ Randall Lane told Billy Penn earlier this year that 2,000 people will be invited to attend the conference itself and the “nightlife” will be better.

If you’ve registered through Global Citizen to win a ticket, just sit back, relax and enjoy not being about to think about anything for the rest of the day except the lyrics to this song:
