Imagine a summer festival with the usual head-spinning lineup of top-selling artists, but without the scalding heat, baking port-a-potties and standing-room-only space. Welcome Power 106's Powerhouse! The impressive lineup includes the illustrious Nicki Minaj, Miss Jennifer Lopez, Wiz Khalifa, Trey Songz, YG, Juicy J, ScHoolboy Q, Sage the Gemini, Isaiah Rashad and many more. And what else? It's held inside the air-conditioned Honda Center, complete with actual running-water restrooms and reserved seats with ticket purchase. Isn't that novel? But if you still crave the unavoidable sunburn from watching bands atop melting asphalt, then get to the venue early for the Powerhouse Festival, a parking lot party starting at 3 p.m. with live performances from surprise up-and-coming acts. Don't forget the sunscreen.
