Hosted annually in Las Vegas, the iHeartRadio Music Festival is a two-day concert from the powerhouse national radio and podcast company. The festival is less about any one genre than it is about drawing the biggest hitmakers possible. Although neither the 2023 lineup nor festival dates been announced yet, past performers include Avril Lavigne, Luke Combs, Pitbull, Taylor Swift, Halsey and Megan Thee Stallion. For those tired of hearing Top 40 hitmakers crank out their biggest tunes for the fiftieth time, they can check Daytime Village, the additional two stages for up-and-coming artists. Past Daytime Village performers included Olivia Rodrigo, The Kid Laroi, Troye Sivan and Bryson Tiller.
The festival is also broadcasted live — and emceed by Ryan Seacrest (how many gigs does this guy have?) — on television, for people who prefer to watch from the comfort of their own couch (we get it). With rapid 25-minute sets, celebrity presenters and assigned stadium seating, the iHeartRadio Festival fuses the energy of a music festival with the a more traditional concert vibe.
- The festival can seat 20,000 people — and with its star-studded lineup, it’s bound to sell out quickly.
- Tickets are not yet for sale at the time of this writing.
