For the Reporter

Teen Hoot is a worldwide brand and social phenomenon that invites YouTube stars to perform at the live events, including the 1 p.m. show at the Washington State Fair on Sunday, Sept. 14.

In addition to the live concert featuring YouTube stars, international and local musicians and personalities will take part. The Puyallup show will be the only Pacific Northwest concert and competition, and the first 200 purchasers will receive meet and greet tickets.

Teen Hoot is part of the fair's 2014 Columbia Bank Concert Series. Tickets are $25 for infield seating general admission and $20 for grandstand seating general admission, and include fair gate admission.

Tickets sales begin at 10 a.m. Saturday on the Fair website or by phone at 888-559-FAIR (3247) daily from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tickets also can be purchased in person at the fair's box office at 9th Avenue Southwest and Meridian Street on Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and a $1 per ticket service fee will be charged for on-site purchases.

The first 200 ticket purchasers will receive meet and greet passes to meet the artists from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the VIP tent adjacent to the backstage area. Attendees will be notified by the box office with instructions on when and where to meet.

A YouTube contest to submit videos will run June 1-29. A Top 10 Poll to vote for your favorite performer will run from June 29 to July 6. To submit videos, visit: teenhoot.com/auditions. The winner will receive a $1,000 cash prize and the chance to perform one song on the grandstand stage on Sept. 14 at the fair.
