CLEAR CHANNEL RADIO has added JAY-Z to the line-up for the iHEARTRADIO Music Festival, the two-day music event hosted by RYAN SEACREST. The music festival was announced on MONDAY, JULY 11th and sold out ten minutes after tickets were put on sale to the general public. JAY-Z will appear at the iHEARTRADIO Music Festival on FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 23rd, when his performance will close out the Festival’s opening night.
"When we conceived the iHEARTRADIO Music Festival we set out to break down boundaries between genres and assemble a collection of the biggest musicians in the world," said CLEAR CHANNEL Chairman of Media and Entertainment Platforms BOB PITTMAN. "JAY-Z embodies that range; he has had a defining influence on music, and the creative influence he continues to have on other artists cannot be overstated. Adding him to the line-up is yet one more reason the festival will be a once-in-a-lifetime music event."
"We are thrilled to have JAY-Z as part of the iHEARTRADIO Festival, making an incredible line-up even more spectacular," said CLEAR CHANNEL RADIO CEO JOHN HOGAN. "The thousands of fans who converge on LAS VEGAS in SEPTEMBER to celebrate the next generation of iHEARTRADIO, and the millions more who can listen to or watch the live streams, will truly witness the greatest musicians in the world together on one stage."
