“We’re thrilled to continue to present Disney’s biggest and brightest stars as part of our concert series,” said Festival Executive Producer Howard Freeman. “With The Girl and The Dreamcatcher, our twice a day mass ascensions of 100 balloons, a great amusement area and exciting interactive attractions, our teens and tweens have a lot to look forward to at this year’s festival.”
Dove Cameron began acting in community theatre in Seattle, WA at age eight and moved to Los Angeles at age 14 to pursue acting and singing professionally.
She has starred as identical twins Liv and Maddie since the show began airing in July 2013.

Jackson.
Dove’s singing talents can be found on various Disney releases: Compilations from Liv and Maddie as well as Disney’s Christmas CD.
