iHeartRadio Music Festival is a two-day music festival in Las Vegas that features over 30 of today’s biggest names – across genres and formats.
Produced by iHeartMedia and hosted at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas in September, the Festival features two 4+ hour nights of non-stop chart-topping hits, musical World Premieres and never-before-seen collaborations from the world’s most iconic and hottest emerging artists. Widely acknowledged as the most social music event in the world, the 2018 iHeartRadio Music Festival generated a total of 13 Billion social media impressions, beating out Coachella which generated 8 Billion social impressions in 2018. Home to artists like McCartney to Mary J. Blige, Drake to Deadmau5 and Timberlake to Taylor, the iHeartRadio Music Festival stage is the biggest multi-genre music event in anywhere.
The annual event has aired as a television special every year since its launch. In 2011 the event was televised by VH1, while every edition since 2012 has been broadcast by The CW, kicking off that network’s fall television season.
According to Billboard, the main festival “showcases some of the most well-established artists in the genre” while the village showcases emerging artists. In 2013, the magazine wrote that the festival had “quickly established itself as a home to every major artist.”
The iHeartRadio Music Festival is part of iHeartMedia’s roster of major concert events, which includes the iHeartSummer’17 Weekend by AT&T; the nationwide iHeartRadio Jingle Ball Concert Tour; the iHeartCountry Festival; and the iHeartRadio Music Awards.
