Astral’s Family Channel cranks up the heat this summer with the launch of its Big Ticket Summer campaign, kicking off today. Guaranteed to take excitement levels off the chart, the summer promotion features not-to-be missed programming, weekly challenges and a special contest leading up to an epic Big Ticket Summer Concert event on Sunday, August 26 at the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre in Toronto.
Presented by Family in conjunction with Live Nation, the colossal concert event will be hosted by Family Channel stars including: Really Me’s Sydney Imbeau and Kiana Madeira; What’s Up, Warthogs! stars Tiago Abreu, Ed Witzke and Ana Golja; and Wingin’ It’s Demetrius Joyette and Brittany Adams.
Headlining the Big Ticket Summer Concert is Disney star and fan favourite, Bridgit Mendler, best known for her role as Teddy Duncan in Family Channel’s popular series Good Luck Charlie; pop rock trio Allstar Weekend; and power pop group R5, the sibling-based group featuring Austin & Ally’s Ross Lynch and Glee’s Riker Lynch. Joining the line-up is very special guest and Canadian teen sensation, Tyler Medeiros, as well as guests Mimoza Duot and Veronica.
Dedicated to providing the ultimate experience to Family Channel viewers, Family is giving away 11 prizes to attend the Big Ticket Summer Concert. Each prize, which can be won as part of the Big Ticket Summer Challenge on Family.ca, includes four tickets to the concert in Toronto, as well as transportation and accommodation.
