Pitbull, Backstreet Boys and Enrique Iglesias will headline “KTUphoria 2016” at Nikon at Jones Beach Theater on June 4.

“Mr. Worldwide” launched his new single “Bad Man” in spectacular style last month at the Grammys with Robin Thicke, Aerosmith’s Joe Perry and Travis Barker. Probably too much to ask to expect Sofia Vergara to dance onstage with Pitbull again at Jones Beach.

Also on the bill are hitmakers The Chainsmokers (“Roses”), Mike Posner (“I Took a Pill in Ibiza”) and Bebe Rexha (“No Broken Hearts”).

“With the hottest stars in music on one stage, ‘KTUphoria 2016’ is the best way to kick off the summer right,” Thea Mitchem, iHeartMedia New York’s executive vice president of programming, said in a statement. “We can’t wait for our listeners to experience their favorite artists at Jones Beach Theater.”

Tickets for the show go on sale at 10 a.m. April 4 through

“This year’s KTUphoria will be our best yet,” said WKTU’s program director Rob Miller, the Patchogue native who brought KTU’s summer party back to Jones Beach last year after a few years away. “We are excited to celebrate summer with our listeners as the star-studded lineup brings the heat to Jones Beach Theater!”
