iHeartMedia announced Wednesday (June 16) that the festival will return Sept. 17-18 to Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena, with Ryan Seacrest hosting. Cheap Trick, Journey, Khalid, Nelly, Sam Hunt and Weezer are also on the main stage lineup during the two-day event.
The Daytime Stage will feature additional performances from DaBaby, Olivia Rodrigo, The Kid LAROI, Saweetie, All Time Low, 24kGoldn, Russell Dickerson, Yungblud, Gabby Barrett, Tate McRae, Conan Gray and Addison Rae on Sept. 18 at Vegas’ new immersive entertainment and events complex AREA15. The Daytime Stage will not only host live performances, but will also include fan zones and interactive experiences sponsored by iHeartRadio’s brand partners.
The iHeartRadio Music Festival teases surprise performers as well as one-of-a-kind collaborations for the 11th annual event, which went virtual last year due to the COVID pandemic.
“This year’s festival will be historic for many reasons,” says Tom Poleman, chief programming officer for iHeartMedia, in a statement. “Not only will it be the first time all of these artists are together on the same stage, but also because it’ll be in front of a live audience. We’ve all been waiting for this moment – live music is back, and we’ll be celebrating like never before.”
