The 2014 iHeartRadio Music Festival is heading back to Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Arena for the fourth time with the world’s biggest performers across all music genres.
In a video released Wednesday, July 23, iHeartRadio Music Festival host Ryan Seacrest announced the star-studded guest list for the two-day music extravaganza, which will take place on Sept. 19 and 20.
This year’s huge one-weekend event also marks the second annual iHeartRadio Music Festival Village, which will kick off Sept. 20 afternoon at The Lot across from Luxor Hotel & Casino featuring live performances by Iggy Azalea, Neon Trees, Kacey Musgraves, Childish Gambino, Magic!, The Pretty Reckless, Nico & Vinz, Lil Jon and a lot more, Broadway World reported.
“People can expect a weekend that they will never forget,” Seacrest told People Wednesday at the New York office of Clear Channel Media and Entertainment, owner of the Internet radio platform iHeartRadio. “I saw the list coming together, and I was so excited to announce it because it covers everything in music – all these artists in one place for the weekend and the biggest fans who make the pilgrimage who come to see them.”
Aside from the festival goers, Tom Poleman, president of Clear Channel’s national programming platforms, said that even the artists themselves might be pleased by this year’s genre-spanning lineup.
“It’s great to have the diversity of genres this year. That’s what makes it so special,” Poleman told Billboard. “You’ll often have people on the side of the stage watching other bands. It’s not unthinkable to see someone like Coldplay watching Zac Brown or One Direction because they’re already on-set and they never get to see them play themselves.”
General-public tickets will go on sale Saturday, July 26, at 1 p.m. EST via Ticketmaster.com.
The 2014 iHeartRadio Music Festival will be broadcast live on Clear Channel radio stations and will be exclusively streamed live on Yahoo! Screen. It will then air as a exclusive two-night special on The CW on Sept. 29 and 30, MTV News reported.
