The fourth annual iHeartRadio Music Festival hosted by Ryan Seacrest at the MGM Grand Las Vegas wrapped up Saturday night after two days of incredible performances by today’s most popular musicians and a number of one-of-a-kind collaborations.
The multi-genre lineup included nearly 40 headliners who entertained concertgoers both on the main stage at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on the evenings of September 19 and 20 and at the iHeartRadio Music Festival Village on Saturday afternoon. Performers included Taylor Swift, Coldplay, Usher, Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj, Mötley Crüe, Zac Brown Band, One Direction, Ed Sheeran, Paramore, Iggy Azalea, Train, Eric Church, Lorde, Calvin Harris, Bastille, Steve Aoki, 50 Cent, Weezer and more.
The iHeartRadio Music Festival, which debuted four years ago in celebration of the successful iHeartRadio all-in-one digital service, has quickly become one of the most talked about music events of the year. In fact, a recent study sponsored by Eventbrite and Mashwork named the iHeartRadio Music Festival among the top two most buzzed-about music festivals in America. The Festival is a live representation of the diverse music catalog that fans find and enjoy through the iHeartRadio app, which is ranked the No. 1 digital audio service with over 345 million downloads; the app reached its first 20 million registered users faster than any digital service in Internet history.
More than 20,000 music fans experienced the amazing two-day event LIVE, including thousands of broadcast radio listeners from across the country who won all-expense-paid dream trips to Las Vegas as part of iHeartMedia’s summer-long on-air and online promotion.
The millions of fans not in Las Vegas to experience the Festival in person were able to listen and watch the iHeartRadio Music Festival live across iHeartMedia’s more than 850 radio stations in over 150 markets and via the Yahoo Live (https://yahoo.com/iheart) stream. In addition, the Festival will also return to The CW Network as an exclusive two-night television special on September 29 and 30 from 8:00-10:00 p.m.
