P!NK, equally known for her powerhouse vocals, uplifting anthems, and showman stage skills, is sure to ‘get the party started’ and give fans an unforgettable performance. Since her debut in 2000, P!NK has released seven studio albums, one greatest hits album, sold over 50 million album equivalents, over 75 million singles, and over 2.4 million DVDs worldwide, and has had 15 singles in the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart (four at #1). In addition, she is the recipient of three GRAMMY® Awards (20 nominations), one Daytime Emmy Award, three Billboard Music Awards, seven MTV Video Music Awards, two MTV Europe Awards, two People’s Choice Awards, was named Billboard’s Woman of the Year in 2013, and has sold out arenas all over the world.

Her eighth studio album, Hurts 2B Human, is set for release on April 26th via RCA Records and is available for pre-order today.
Imagine Dragons will bring the crowd to their feet on Friday night of the Grand Prix weekend when they bring their limitless passion and genre-bending music to Austin, Texas. Over the last half-decade, Imagine Dragons has emerged as one of the biggest and most compelling rock bands in the world. Within a year of its June 2017 release, their third studio album, EVOLVE, went double-platinum, yielding three back-to-back #1 singles: "Believer," "Thunder," and "Whatever It Takes." Throughout their Evolve World Tour—a 116-date trek that sold over 1.7 million tickets worldwide—the multi-platinum, GRAMMY® Award-winning band began working on their follow-up and ended up creating their most dynamic work to date. The Las Vegas-based group released their latest album, Origins, in November 2018 and have seen great chart-topping success with the powerhouse single “Natural” and epic balladry of “Bad Liar.”
Past artists who have performed on the Super Stage during the USGP weekend include Taylor Swift, Justin Timberlake, Bruno Mars, Britney Spears, Usher & the Roots, Stevie Wonder and Sir Elton John.
