If you have questions about our big 20th birthday show, we have answers.

What is the Birthday Bash?

The 99X Birthday Bash celebrates our 20th year being the rock station for the Shreveport-Bossier area. It’s also a thanks to you, our listeners, for giving us a reason to wake up each morning and rock your faces. It all goes down May 10 at the Shreveport Municipal Auditorium.

Who is playing?

We’ve got a diverse lineup that represents the best of rock and roll and metal.

Opening the show is England’s Heaven’s Basement. Then, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts will take the stage to play songs from their latest record “Unvarnished,” plus hits from their impressive decades-long career. Following Jett is The Pretty Reckless, who’ve skyrocketed to stardom with the no. 1 hit “Heaven Knows” off their sophomore album “Going to Hell.” Headliners All That Remains will close out the show and bring Shreveport to its knees.
