Organizers of the inaugural Gibson Brands AP Music Awards, fueled by Monster Energy Drink, have added yet another batch of top-shelf talent to its lineup. Joining the already star-studded list of special appearances are Paramore, Yellowcard, Billy Corgan, We Came As Romans, Chiodos, Miss May I and Issues. These world-renowned artists share an impressive combined 19 Alternative Press Magazine covers and more than 5 million-plus in U.S. album sales between them. Additionally, Machine Gun Kelly, previously announced as a special appearance, will now be performing live at the APMAs, making this an absolutely must-see event.

APMAs digital media partner AXS TV, also recognized throughout the industry for their recent and innovative live coverage of music awards shows and events such as Coachella, Lollapalooza, Stagecoach and New Orleans Jazz Fest, has announced the APMAs broadcast will begin at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on July 21, and will not only feature the entirety of the APMAs, but will also include exciting highlights from the red carpet pre-show (co-hosted by Automatic Loveletter frontwoman/The Voice season two runner-up Juliet Simms plus a very special guest to be announced soon). This live broadcast will also feature footage from the VIP boat party during the day, and will feature exclusive performances from rising stars Issues, Ghost Town and Marmozets.

While there will be loads of action onscreen, AXS TV will also be taking the party online. Viewers can head to www.axs.tv/apmas/ to watch exclusive behind-the-scenes videos and view photos. Fans can also take part in live polls and get involved on social media. Plus, fans can enter to win awesome prizes, such as a one-year subscription to Alternative Press Magazine, Gibson Brands guitars and merchandise, and Monster Energy Drink swag.

This special one-night event on July 21, 2014, held at the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame And Museum at North Coast Harbor in AP’s hometown of Cleveland, also coincides with the collision of two of the country’s premier touring rock festivals. This rock n’ roll crossroad brings several presenters and performers to the APMAs, such as Vans Warped Tour performers Motionless in White, Marmozets, Yellowcard, Issues and Mayhem Festival performers Asking Alexandria, Korn, Body Count feat. Ice T, Miss May I and Frankie Palmeri of Emmure. More are set to be announced soon!

In its inaugural year, the APMAs will be hosted by six-time AP cover star Mark Hoppus (Blink-182) and will feature performances from A Day To Remember, All Time Low, Asking Alexandria, Fall Out Boy, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, Machine Gun Kelly, the Misfits, Sleeping With Sirens, twenty one pilots and Brendon Urie of Panic! At The Disco, with more to be announced.

Other confirmed artists making appearances (some previously stated above) include Andy Biersack (Black Veil Brides), Billy Corgan, Chiodos, Laura Jane Grace (Against Me!), I See Stars, Ice-T & Coco, Issues, Korn, Memphis May Fire, Miss May I, Motionless In White, Frankie Palmeri (Emmure), Paramore, We Came As Romans and Yellowcard, with more to be announced. Cleveland’s 115-piece Contemporary Youth Orchestra will be performing throughout the APMAs, both independently and through unique artist collaborations.

Tickets are on sale now for $69.99 which includes a ticket to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame And Museum to be used that same day and can be purchased online at www.altpress.com/apmas Fourteen awards in total will be handed out, including Album Of The Year presented by Journeys, Artist Of The Year presented by Monster Energy Drink, Song of the Year presented by Epitaph Records, Best Guitarist presented by Gibson, Best Drummer presented by DW Drums, Best International Band presented by Zepeda Brothers Productions and Most Dedicated Fans presented by Fearless Records, along with an Icon Award presented by Blackstar Amps honoring Joan Jett and a Vanguard Award honoring Billy Corgan. Fans can cast their votes in 12 different categories at www.altpress.com/apmas. Voting ends July 15.

Fans that purchased VIP and Monster Energy Drink ticket packages will be invited to a pre-show boat party on the Goodtimes III, located right behind the Rock Hall. The boat sets sail at 1:30 p.m. and will include performances by Issues, Ghost Town and Marmozets, three bands recently featured in AP’s 100 Bands You Need To Know In 2014 special edition issue.
