4801240791 Best of AMP Radio 2014: January   April

We’re counting down some of our favorite moments from 2014, and we figured instead of just making a Top 10 list, we’d take it one step further and break it down month by month.

Reflecting back on the year brings us all the happy’s and we’re excited to share it with all of you. Because you’ve been here with us for the ride.

So let’s start with January – April, where it all began for 2014.

We started the year off with a bang! Our GRAMMYs pre-party was amazing, with performances by Imagine Dragons and Capital Cities. The party was held at The Grammy Museum and The Conga Room, and we had a BLAST. No better way to kick off the year than during the biggest weekend in music.

March was all about AMPLIFY. And MAN was this a good one. Lil Jon, Afrojack & super hero Zedd rocked the Hollywood Palladium for a bunch of insanely awesome AMP Radio listeners. The night was crazy, we had way too much fun, and we still may be recovering from it today.

 We all know what April means in SoCal. It’s Coachella-ella-ella time! Yeah buddy 🙂 And it was no different for AMP. We headed out for both weekends of the festival, PLUS we partied the weekends away at the LED Day Club in Palm Springs.
