This weekend, September 18 and 19, the iHeartRadio Music Festival is celebrating 10 years of making incredible moments of music history happen.
This year's star-studded lineup of performing artists includes Alicia Keys, Bon Jovi, BTS, Coldplay, Kane Brown with special guest Khalid, Keith Urban, Migos, Miley Cyrus, Swae Lee, Thomas Rhett, Usher, and more, and it’s all hosted by Ryan Seacrest.
And, in true iHeartRadio Music Festival fashion, the weekend will feature one-of-a-kind collaborations and surprise performances as many bands and artists reunite to perform together again for the first time in months. Fans will also get to see intimate backstage moments with artists as they share how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted their lives and families, given the disruption in society and touring.
Fans can tune in to watch the festival live on The CW App and CWTV.com on September 18 and 19 at 9pm ET/6pm PT, and relive all of the epic performances during a two-night Festival highlights special on September 27 and 28 from 8-10pm ET/PT.
