Clear Channel Announces ‘iHeartRadio Music Festival’

Radio conglomerate Clear Channel recently announced plans for the iHeartRadio Music Festival. The star-studded event is set for Sept. 23-24 and will be held in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand.

Artists scheduled to perform include Lady Gaga, Coldplay, the Black Eyed Peas, Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, Kenny Chesney, John Mayer, Rascal Flatts, Alicia Keys, Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson, Nicki Minaj, Bruno Mars, Jane’s Addiction, Sublime with Rome, and David Guetta.

Sting and Usher will also be on hand to perform as special guests.

The festivities will be hosted by Ryan Seacrest.

Clear Channel, which operates more than 850 radio stations in the United States, is calling their shin-dig the “biggest live music event in radio history.” While that’s debatable, it has enough star-power to be one of the most anticipated upcoming concerts of the year.

If you can’t get iHeartRadio Music Festival tickets you can always listen to the event on iHeatRadio.com as well most of Clear Channel’s radio stations’ Web sites. The company estimates 100 million people will listen to the music festival either on the net or via mobile devices.

The historic festival coincides with Clear Channel’s release of the newest version of their iHeartRadio platform—a rival to Pandora.

“Music is the heart of our business and we think there is no better way to celebrate the launch of the new iHeartRadio than with a groundbreaking, multi-day festival featuring the world’s biggest, most exciting artists,” declared Clear Channel executive Bob Pittman.
