iHeartMedia may be struggling to pay the bills, but they've still got the cash and clout to put assemble an impressive festival. And one look at the 2016 iHeartradio Festival lineup reminds just how much that mega-hits - past and current - drive commercial broadcast radio.
iHeartMedia today announced the lineup for the 2016 iHeartRadio Music Festival on September 23 and 24 at Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena. The hit driven lineup includes U2, Sting, Drake, Britney Spears, Sam Hunt, twenty one pilots, Billy Idol, Florida Georgia Line, OneRepublic, Sia, Cage the Elephant, Zedd, Tears for Fears, Ariana Grande, Pitbull and Usher, along with this year's Macy's iHeartRadio Rising Star winner, Los 5.
Each night, the festival will broadcast live for fans via iHeartMedia radio stations throughout the country across 150 markets. The CW TV network will also livestream both nights CWTV.com and The CW App, and then re-broadcast a two-night television special on Thursday, October 6 and Friday, October 7th from 8 p.m – 10 p.m. EST/PST.
A Daytime Village at the iHeartRadio Music Festival also returns to the Las Vegas Village across from the Luxor on Saturday, September 24 with performances by Sam Hunt, Panic! At The Disco, Alessia Cara, Troye Sivan, Hailee Steinfeld, Good Charlotte, Jeremih, Lissie, Cold War Kids, Daya, Cage The Elephant, The Chainsmokers, Bryson Tiller and DNCE. The Village will also feature fan zones and specially curated interactive experiences by iHeartRadio’s brand partners.
