“Each year we look to create history with the iHeartRadio Music Festival by curating a lineup of the biggest artists from every genre. What makes this show unlike all others is that every artist is a massive star and could easily headline the MGM Arena on their own,” said Tom Poleman, President of National Programming Platforms, iHeartMedia. “With unbelievable live performances and collaborations, every year the iHeartRadio Music Festival and Daytime Village are the ultimate celebrations of artists and music.”
