The 2020 iHeartRadio Music Festival will celebrate its 10th anniversary this fall, with a two-day festival set to be streamed Sept. 27-28 via The CW App and CWTV.com, and aired on iHeartMedia stations nationwide (starting at 9 p.m. ET). The two-day virtual concert will feature concerts recorded on stages in Los Angeles and Nashville, and will feature Keith Urban, Thomas Rhett, Khalid, Migos, Miley Cyrus, Usher, and more.
The CW Network will broadcast the two-night televised iHeartRadio Music Festival on Sunday, Sept. 27 (8:00-10:00 pm ET) and Monday, Sept. 28 (8:00-10:00 pm ET).
The 10th anniversary will also feature special remote performances and include intimate backstage moments with artists sharing compelling and inspiring stories about how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted their lives and their families, given the disruption in society and touring this year.
“We worked closely with the artist community to create a safe way for them to step back on stage and perform for millions of their fans on the radio and television,” said John Sykes, President of Entertainment Enterprises for iHeartMedia. “It’s our commitment to help the artists whose music we play here at iHeart stay connected to their fans.”
As part of the virtual festival, fans will have the opportunity to introduce artists and take part in virtual meet and greets. Fans watching live will also have an opportunity to appear in a special fan video wall and be serenaded by their favorite artists.
“It’s hard to believe that this September will be the 10th iHeartRadio Music Festival,” said Tom Poleman, Chief Programming Officer for iHeartMedia. “The 2011 Festival was iHeart’s first national marquee event and became the model for our hugely successful series of iHeart-branded music events broadcast and streamed across the country on radio, television and online. More than 200 superstar artists have made our iHeartRadio Music Festival the biggest in the world, and this year’s lineup, even amidst a global pandemic, will be one for the history books.”
Over the last decade, the iHeartRadio Music Festival has continued to bring together the biggest artists across all genres on one stage over two nights in Las Vegas including U2, Bon Jovi, Childish Gambino, Drake, Fleetwood Mac, Justin Timberlake, Kanye West, Luke Bryan, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Mary J Blige, Prince, Shawn Mendes, Sir Elton John and Sir Paul McCartney, Taylor Swift, The Killers, The Weeknd, and more.
The 2020 iHeartRadio Music Festival is co-produced by John Sykes and Tom Poleman for iHeartMedia and Michael Dempsey for Dempsey Productions.
