NEW YORK—This week media giant iHeartMedia announced the lineup for its 2021 iHeartRadio Music Festival planned for Friday, Sept. 17 and Saturday, Sept. 18 in Las Vegas. The festival includes a mix of artists from across the musical spectrum on stages at T-Mobile Arena and AREA15, a new immersive event and entertainment district.

Artists booked for the two-day event include Billie Eilish, Cheap Trick, Coldplay, Dua Lipa, Florida Georgia Line, Journey, Khalid, Lil Baby, Maroon 5, Nelly, Sam Hunt, Weezer and more. The festival is more than just a series of artists on stage. Event promoters say it “will once again include one-of-a-kind collaborations and surprise performances.”

“This year’s Festival will be historic for many reasons,” said Tom Poleman, Chief Programming Officer for iHeartMedia. “Not only will it be the first time all of these artists are together on the same stage, but also because it’ll be in front of a live audience. We’ve all been waiting for this moment – live music is back, and we’ll be celebrating like never before.”

Those who can’t make it to Las Vegas for the show can listen to the live broadcast on iHeartMedia radio stations. The festival will also be packaged into a two-night television special broadcast Oct. 2 and 3 on the CW Network.

Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, June 25 at 11 a.m. Pacific time via AXS.com.
