Teens to kick off summer at Wet 'n' Wild

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Thousands of teens from O'ahu's high schools flocked to Wet'n'Wild Hawaii during Spring Break to celebrate at Hawaii Teen Muzik Fest (HTMF). Coming up this Summer, the festival is hosting its Summer Block Party edition of HTMF on Saturday, June 13, 2015, and anticipates a larger crowd of teens to attend.

Presale tickets are currently available online here. Tickets will also be available soon at various T&C Surf locations, Wet'n'Wild Hawaii, Navy Military Outlets and most High Schools through #HTMF Promo Members.

Tickets are $20 for General Admission and $40 for VIP. From June 8 to 12, cost is $30/$50. At-the-door purchases will cost $35/$55. VIP entry allows teens exclusive access to multiple reserved sections throughout the night, free glow accessories including a free LED baton and more. A portion of all proceeds will benefit a local nonprofit organization.

A highlight of the HTMF Summer Block Party is Wet'n'Wild's newest attraction in six years: the Waimea Whirl, a funnel-shaped bowl that riders will swirl through and into a splash pool. Teens will be able to ride the Waimea Whirl, which commemorates Wet'n'Wild's Sweet 16th Birthday this year.

Two headlining DJs have been confirmed, including DJ Dirty Secret and DJ Johnny Pastrami.

Another new addition to the HTMF schedule is a dance battle: Hawaii's Best Dance Crew Competition. The competition is open to all crews to compete for cash and prizes throughout the night of the festival. Interested groups should email events@hawaiiteenmusicfest.com for more information and application instructions.

Held at Wet'n'Wild Hawaii, the HTMF Summer Block Party will combine the best of zero drug and alcohol tolerance with live music performances and DJs. Many of the park's famous water rides will be open for teens to enjoy throughout the night. HTMF will set up multiple music stations that will feature different and popular genres such as Top 40 dance mixes, hip-hop mash-ups, reggae, and more.

The drug- and alcohol-free Hawaii Teen Music Fest is only open to teenagers between the ages of 14 to 18 years old. Attendees must show a valid high school, military or state ID or a driver's license at the door.

The Hawaii Teen Music Fest is a year-round music series featuring local DJs and national bands, targeted toward providing safe fun for Hawaii's middle and high school teenagers. HTMF is a zero-tolerance, no-drugs, no-alcohol event that partners with local nonprofits and organizations to promote its positive message.
