The iHeartRadio Music Festival will also include performances from this year’s Macy’s iHeartRadio Rising Star winner, Los 5.
“After five years of producing some of the best lineups to ever take the stage, we’re excited to unveil one of the strongest iHeartRadio Music Festival rosters to date,” said Tom Poleman, president of national programming at iHeartMedia. “This year’s show is a complete cross section of the best artists from every genre of music. The weekend will be a true representation of the diveristy of our iHeartRadio stations across the country as well as the music you find on the iHeartRadio app.”
Each night, the iHeartRadio Music Festival will broadcast live for fans via iHeartMedia radio stations throughout the country across 150 markets. The CW Network will also exclusively livestream both nights of the festival via CWTV.com and The CW App, and then broadcast a two-night television special on October 6 and October 7.
The iHeartRadio Music Festival is co-produced by John Sykes, president of entertainment enterprises and Poleman.
