German purveyors of folktronica Milky Chance made their first splash in April of 2013 with the release of the hit single “Stolen Dance.” The song, from the band’s debut album “Sadnecessary,” peaked at No. 1 on charts in multiple countries, including Austria, France, Belgium, Switzerland, and Poland.

The alternative folk duo began touring North America in late 2014, performing at venues such as the House of Blues and festivals such as Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.

Earlier this month, Milky Chance released an online stream of their much-anticipated new single, “Cocoon.” The song will be featured on a brand new album, which the band says is currently in the works.

K.Flay, an alternative hip-hop artist who first found success with her 2014 debut album “Life as a Dog,” has performed with Snoop Dogg, Passion Pit, and on the 2014 Vans Warped Tour. In 2016, K.Flay signed to Interscope Records and promptly released the critically-acclaimed “Crush Me” EP.

Lewis Del Mar is an alternative folk rock duo from New York City’s Rockaway Beach. They first received national attention in early 2015 following the success of their debut single, “Loud(y).” In January of 2016, they released their debut EP, which peaked at No. 7 on the “Billboard Emerging Artists” charts. Their self-titled debut album was released on Oct. 7 via Columbia Records.

The 2016 Nutcracker Ball lineup also features Scranton’s own Black Tie Stereo, an alternative pop rock outfit that has already performed with the likes of Weezer, Panic! at the Disco, and even the Steve Miller Band.
