Clear Channel has announced the artist line-up for the iHeartRadio Music Festival, taking place in Las Vegas on Sept. 20 and 21. This year’s extraordinary line-up includes Justin Timberlake, Katy Perry, J. Cole, Elton John, Muse, Tiësto, Chris Brown, Keith Urban, fun., Miguel, Bruno Mars, Phoenix, Zedd, Maroon 5, Tim McGraw, Ke$ha, Thirty Seconds to Mars and Benny Benassi, plus a rare live appearance by legendary rock band Queen + Adam Lambert, this year's Macy's iHeartRadio Rising Star winner, The Summer Set and other special surprise guests to be announced later. Ryan Seacrest will return for a third record-breaking year to host the Festival, kicking off the two-day event on the evening of Friday, Sept. 20 at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas.
The Festival will broadcast live across Clear Channel's radio stations in 150 markets nationwide, and this year will air as a two night TV special on The CW on Sept. 30 (night one) at 7 p.m. CT / 8 ET and Oct. 1 (night two) at 7 p.m. CT / 8 ET, to launch the network’s fall season.
“The iHeartRadio Music Festival truly captures the essence of what music is all about — excitement, energy and the deep connection between artists and fans,” said John Hogan, chairman and CEO of Clear Channel Media and Entertainment. “Every year, we try to push the boundaries of what live music events can be by showcasing the hottest artists across all genres and radio formats all on one stage. And year after year, the iHeartRadio Music Festival produces more and more of music's most memorable moments. Now, with the addition of the iHeartRadio Music Festival Village featuring even more artists, this year will push those limits even further — it's going to be incredible.”
“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,” said Ryan Seacrest, the host of the iHeartRadio Music Festival. “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.”
