And year after year, the iHeartRadio Music Festival produces more and more of music’s most memorable moments. Now, with the addition of the iHeartRadio Music Festival Village featuring even more artists, this year will push those limits even further — it’s going to be incredible.”

“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,” said Ryan Seacrest, the host of the iHeartRadio Music Festival. “This year, the iHeartRadio Music Festival becomes a trilogy — remixing, redefining and rewriting music history. I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of this must-see, one-of-a-kind total music experience.”

The iHeartRadio Music Festival is co-produced by John Sykes, President of Entertainment Enterprises for Clear Channel and Tom Poleman, President of National Programming Platforms for Clear Channel Media and Entertainment.
