The weekend will be a true representation of the diversity of our iHEARTRADIO stations across the country, as well as the music you find on the iHEARTRADIO app.”
Each night, the FESTIVAL will broadcast live for fans via iHEARTMEDIA radio stations throughout the country across 150 markets.

“When we first launched the FESTIVAL six years ago, people wondered how such a diverse lineup of artists would play together on the same stage," said iHEARTMEDIA Pres./Entertainment Enterprises JOHN SYKES. "The fan reaction was immediate, and overnight the FESTIVAL became known as the year’s ultimate celebration of the best in all genres of music."
