Last year's winner, Sara Ridnor, then a sophomore at Saugus High School and enrolled in the Yes I Can program, took her mother, father and sister as her guests to the concert, headlined by central California rockers Trapt.

"I had a great time," Ridnor said afterward. "It was really fun throwing out the T-shirts from the stage and getting Trapt's autographs. Thank you for all the cool T-shirts, CDs and other stuff and making it such a fun day for me and my family. I can't wait until the 2009 Summer Meltdown."

This year's festival headliner is Shwayze, and the lineup includes OPM, The Dirty Heads, Oh No Not Stereo, Renfue, Boomkat, Forrest Day, BlueSkyReality, Kounterfeit Change, Mission:Black, BLT, and Evidence in Here.
