TORONTO, July 22, 2015 /CNW/ - YTV is thrilled to announce Sabrina Carpenter, one of the stars of Disney's Girl Meets World and Hollywood Records' recording artist, as well as Canadian singing sensation Francesco Yates, will be performing at YTV Summer Beach Bash. This stellar lineup joins previously announced live performances from Rebel Coast; XO-IQ, featured in the upcoming YTV series, Make It Pop; Kolton Stewart and Charlie Storwick from YTV's Some Assembly Required; as well as appearances from YTV stars Jonny Gray, Jake Goodman, Emilia McCarthy and Saara Chaudry from Max & Shred. YTV talent from Stanley Dynamic and Game On will also be on hand for meet and greets.
Produced by Tricon Kids & Family, the televised summer concert and all-day event is taking place at Canada's Wonderland in Splash Works on Saturday, August 8 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Viewers across Canada can watch YTV Summer Beach Bash the same day at 7 p.m. ET/PT. YTV's own Carlos of The Zone, will host the show, along with Suki, Lisa and Victor, who will be returning from YTV's cross-Canada Summer Road Trip.
Sabrina Carpenter – The 16-year-old singer/songwriter and musician who plays Maya Hart on Disney Channel's Girl Meets World and is the star of the upcoming Disney Channel original movie Adventures in Babysitting, has always had a first love—music. This Hollywood Records/Universal Music Canada recording artist will perform songs from her debut album, Eyes Wide Open, many of which she co-wrote herself.
Francesco Yates – The 19-year-old has steadily been making a name for himself in the music community. At age 16, he signed with Atlantic Records and has since been finding his voice both on stage and in the studio with producers like Robin Hannibal and Pharrell Williams. Yates' skills as a musician can be heard on Pharrell's album GIRL, where the teen plays guitar on the song "Gusts of Wind," which also features Daft Punk. Yates' latest single "Better To Be Loved," which he will perform at YTV Summer Beach Bash, is a killer combination of Michael Jackson and Justin Timblerlake mixed with the young singer's own style.
Gold sponsor, Bazooka Candy is presenting three families from across Canada with a VIP experience at Summer Beach Bash, as part of a pre-show contest that ran this spring on YTV's The Zone, and online at YTV.com. The lucky winners will also appear in the live broadcast of the show. Additionally, Bazooka Candy will be integrated into a fun segment of the stage show and event goers will be treated to Bazooka brands including Ring Pop, Juicy Drop Pop, Triple Power Push Pop and Baby Bottle Pop.
