It’s nearing that time of year when the hottest acts in music come together to take the stage for 102.7 KIIS-FM’s Wango Tango in Los Angeles. On Monday (March 28), Ryan Seacrest took to his morning radio show to announce that he and [artist id="501686"]Britney Spears[/artist] will co-host the annual music fest, which will feature performances from Ke$ha, Jennifer Lopez and Selena Gomez.
Other acts scheduled for the concert event include Pitbull, Far East Movement, Jason DeRulo, Lupe Fiasco, T-Pain, New Boys and Cobra Starship. YouTube sensation Cody Simpson will round out the star-studded performance roster.
While Spears may just be hitting the stage as special guest co-host, the “Hold It Against Me” singer, coming off of hot weekend shows in Las Vegas and San Francisco , is no stranger to the Wango Tango stage. When her career was just taking off in 1999, the pop star performed at the annual festival and returned a few years later in 2001 to guest-host the festivities.
Tickets for Wango Tango 2011, which takes place May 14 at the Staples Center, go on sale to KISS Club VIPs on Friday, April 1, and to the general public on Saturday, April 2. Fans may also want to keep an eye on the hit radio station’s Facebook page, where they revealed they will be giving away meet-and-greet passes for Ke$ha.
