"Every year it's the must-see music event of the season, and people will do anything to get their hands on tickets.

For the second year in a row, Z100’s JINGLE BALL will host a nationwide search for the next big musical act called Z100’s Hometown Hero. Music artists and bands alike can sign up and compete on Eventful’s "Demand it!" service, which empowers their fans to “Demand” that they win the chance to perform live on stage at Z100 and Coca-Cola’s All Access Lounge, the official pre-event to Z100’s JINGLE BALL and have their first official music video produced by Z100.
"Z100 has a long history of breaking new artists. It wasn't too long ago that artists like LADY GAGA and JUSTIN BIEBER were performing at Z100's All Access Lounge," said DARREN PFEFFER, Dir./Marketing for CLEAR CHANNEL RADIO NEW YORK. "With Z100's Hometown Hero, we're able to give our community a say in who gets to take the stage at this star-making event."
