In addition to enjoying the spectacular views, special guests will be entertained by electronic music artist Audien and chart-rising act DNCE led by Joe Jonas. The festivities continue on Sunday night with “Intimate Session,” a cocktail reception in Studio A of the historic Capitol Studios building that will feature a live performance by rising star Troye Sivan and an appearance by GRAMMY-winning songwriter Diane Warren, one of the most prolific songwriters of our time.
