Las Vegas’ iHeartRadio Music Festival is one of the few true pop music festivals remaining in the U.S. This spectacular show pulls in amazing talent from every corner of the music world, making for an excellent end to a busy and exhausting festival season.
If you haven’t bought your iHeartRadio Music Festival tickets yet, here are four great reasons to pick out your passes for the two-day extravaganza coming to Vegas later this month.
From Kanye to Kenny: True Lineup Variety
It’s no exaggeration to say that no other North American festival packs such a diverse group of A-list musicians into one lineup. Every single act on the iHeartRadio Music Festival bill this year is a leader in its genre. The first night will star rap icon Kanye West alongside Coldplay, The Who, Sam Smith, Kenny Chesney, and The Killers. Saturday’s performers include R&B veteran Janet Jackson and rising star The Weeknd, pop punk quartet Fall Out Boy, Hozier, Diplo, Trey Songz, and many more.
Short but Sweet: Hit-Filled Setlists
With all that star power fitting into one night, there’s no time to waste on the deep cuts. In recent years the average iHeartRadio Music Festival setlist has featured about six songs, with longer sets from the big headliners.
When Coldplay took the stage last year, the band performed five songs. The setlist included the career-defining hits “Clocks,” “Viva La Vida,” and “Paradise,” in addition to two new singles, “Ink” and “A Sky Full of Stars.”
The Most Comfortable Festival You’ll Attend All Year
Unlike at your standard outdoor summer festival, this fest has plenty of real seating for attendees. Your iHeartRadio Music Festival tickets will hook you up with a seat in the MGM Grand Garden Arena. There are no general admission areas, meaning you can relax your feet in between performances.
A Weekend in Vegas
Even if you only want to spend one day at the iHeartRadio Music Festival, you’ll have plenty to keep you entertained when you visit “Sin City.” Beyond world-class casinos and Michelin-starred restaurants, Las Vegas is host to concert residencies, multiple Cirque du Soleil shows, and top comedians every night of the week. And whether you’re traveling on a budget or living it up in style, there are always plenty of hotel deals available in Las Vegas.
