“We’re thrilled to once again return to Las Vegas for a weekend full of great live music with this year’s Festival,” said Tom Poleman, chief programming officer for iHeartMedia, in a press statement. “What makes this festival one of a kind is that we have the best artists from every genre of music that we play on our 860 iHeart stations all on one stage. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see so many legends performing together.”
“This is the one music festival that celebrates the best in class in all genres of music,” John Sykes, president of entertainment enterprises for iHeartMedia, added. “Fans love this weekend because they discover new artists and the artists leave with new fans.”
The festival, hosted by Ryan Seacrest, will broadcast live on both nights for fans via iHeartMedia radio stations throughout the country. CW will also livestream the event exclusively via the CW app and CWTV.com. The network will also air a two-night television special of the event in October.
