97X Next Big Thing Throwback presented by Clean Earth Systems: 97X Next Big Thing 15

After three amazing years in Vinoy Park, 97X Next Big Thing returned to the Midflorida Credit Union Amphitheatre in 2015. The incredible lineup was headlined by Twenty One Pilots, who just three years earlier was the first band on the 97X Next Big Thing stage to kick off 97X Next Big Thing 12. The sell-out crowd of almost 20,000 fans welcomed back Tyler and Josh along with Of Monsters & Men, WALK THE MOON, Andrew McMahon, X-Ambassadors, Robert DeLong, Glass Animals, PVRIS, Saint Motel and more!
