iHeartRadio Music Festival, the biggest live concert event in radio history, returns for a third year to the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sept. 20 and 21.
The event’s lineup of superstars — which this year includes Katy Perry, Justin Timberlake, J. Cole, Elton John and a rare performance from Queen with Adam Lambert — is even bigger for 2013 with the addition of the iHeartRadio Music Festival Village featuring daytime performances by Miley Cyrus and The Wanted on an adjacent 15-acre site along the Las Vegas Strip.
Ryan Seacrest, host and producer of 102.7 KIIS-FM’s nationally syndicated Los Angeles morning drive-time show “On Air with Ryan Seacrest,” will once again serve as the festival’s host.
“Last year, the iHeartRadio Music Festival sold out in minutes, trended worldwide on Twitter, dominated the media and ruled the airwaves, and inspired fans from all around the world,” Seacrest told reporters in July. “This year, the iHeartRadio Music Festival becomes a trilogy — remixing, redefining and rewriting music history.”
The 2013 main festival lineup will also include Muse, Tiësto, Chris Brown, fun. and more.
