It's that time of year again … the iHeartMusic Festival!
The third installment of the biggest live concert event in radio history will take place on September 20 and 21 at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, and will be hosted by Ryan Seacrest.
And the lineup is jam-packed with the biggest and best artists from all music genres -- pop, rock, R&B, country, and EDM -- Katy Perry, Justin Timberlake, Elton John, Bruno Mars, Ke$ha, Keith Urban, and so many more.
In addition to the festivities on the main stage, on Saturday afternoon there will also be the iHeartRadio Music Festival Village, which will feature nearly two dozen acts on two separate stages at the Luxor, including Miley Cyrus, The Wanted, Avril Lavigne, Jason Derulo, and more.
“Last year, the iHeartRadio Music Festival sold out in minutes, trended worldwide on Twitter, dominated the media and ruled the airwaves, and inspired fans from all around the world,” says Ryan Seacrest. “This year, the iHeartRadio Music Festival becomes a trilogy -- remixing, redefining and rewriting music history. I couldn't be more excited to be a part of this must-see, one-of-a-kind total music experience.”
For those not lucky enough to be on-hand for the event, the iHeartRadio Festival will be broadcast live across Clear Channel radio stations in 150 markets nationwide and will also air as a two-night special on the CW on September 30 and October 1 at 8 p.m.
