Lightning 100′s Top 25 videos of 2012

Lightning 100 had a great 2012….for in-studio performances!  We made a list of our some of our favorite performances from the year, click here to see the full list.

  1. Imagine Dragons – Radioactive
    We gave 20 lucky fans the chance to see a private performance with Imagine Dragons before their sold out show at Cannery Ballroom.  One of our listeners included lead singer, Dan Reynolds, younger brother who won tickets during the lunch request hour.  Watch Imagine Dragons performs “Radioactive” live at Lightning 100.  Click here to see the band perform their big single “It’s Time” live in our studio.
  2. Alabama Shakes – Hold On
    Band of Horses used to wear the crown for biggest crowd at Live On the Green until Alabama Shakes performed in 2012.  Check out Alabama Shakes performance “Hold On” at Live On the Green.

  3. Passion Pit – Take A Walk
    Passion Pit
    performs in front of a few fans in Griffin Technology’s Pre-Show Live event at Marathon Music Works.  The band was running late, so we had to cut out the interview.  Michael Angelakos, lead singer of Passion Pit was a little offended by this.  Check out this live version of “Take A Walk”.  We’ve also recorded “Constant Conversations” and “Sleepyheads” at the show.
  4. The Lumineers – Classy Girl
    If you heard The Lumineers first on Lightning 100, you’ve got Wells Adams to thank for that.  After a few weeks of playing “Ho Hey” during our music meetings, the song made it to the airwaves.  Lightning 100 was one of the first stations in the country to play The Lumineers…..and now you hear them everywhere.
  5. Walk The Moon – Anna Sun
    The young up-and-coming band Walk the Moon stopped by the studio without their face paint.  Check out their performance  “Anna Sun” live at Lightning 100.  We’ve also got a recording of “Tightrope” on our HD On-demand Page.

The one-of-a-kind music festival takes place May 20th – 22nd on the beaches of Gulf Shores, Alabama – just minutes from the Florida border. Tickets go on-sale this Wednesday at 9 am CST. A confirmed lineup is listed below. More bands, amenities and activities will be announced in the coming weeks. The Hangout Music Festival debuted in 2010 and set itself apart from other festivals by featuring a blockbuster lineup of bands performing on stages located directly on the beach. Thousands of condominiums within walking distance add to the exceptional experience shared by music enthusiasts and beach lovers.  This year, the festival is adding a fifth music stage under an air-conditioned tent and creating Hammock Beach, a replenishing salt-water lagoon where music fans will find shade, hammocks, and art installations. Another feature of Hammock Beach will be the Sky-bar tower, a structure built specifically for Hangout offering 360-degree views of the festival. For fans interested in taking their festival experience to the next level, VIP ticket holders are invited to take a dip in Hangout’s new resort style in-ground pool with views of the main stage (deck side bar service is included). Other new attractions include an extended kids’ area, family events, late night deejays, and shuttle service between stages.
