106.1 KISS FM announced today the lineup for its annual Jingle Ball holiday concert on Sunday, December 16 at the WaMu Theater in Seattle.

Here’s more from the announcement:

Tickets will be sold exclusively to 106.1 KISS FM’s VIP Club members via Ticketmaster outlets on Friday, October 26, from 10 a.m. – 10 p.m. PST.

Additional tickets will be available for public purchase starting Saturday, October 27, 2012 at 10 a.m. PST via Ticketmaster.com.

“This year we’re trying something entirely new,” said Eric Powers, 106.1 KISS FM’s Program Director. “The increased popularity of electronic music and DJ’s who have become huge celebrities in our format make us really excited to include them in this year’s amazing lineup. Fans will experience performances by their favorite 106.1 KISS FM artists and then the show will continue and morph into a huge dance party with some of the biggest DJs in the world.”

Every year 106.1 KISS FM’s Jingle Ball gives back to the community to celebrate the holiday season. This year’s official charity for 106.1 KISS FM’s Jingle Ball 2012 is the Alliance for Lupus Research. A portion of each ticket sold will be donated to the national voluntary health organization whose mission is to find better treatments and ultimately prevent and cure systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE or lupus), a debilitating autoimmune disease, by supporting medical research.
