“Because our lineup is based on feedback from iHeartRadio users, it’s one of the most diverse you’ll ever see,” said Tom Poleman, Chief Programming Officer of iHeartMedia. “As our listeners interact with our app, favoriting songs and saving stations, we learn what their ideal festival would be, then we bring that to life!”
Each night, the iHeartRadio Music Festival will broadcast live for fans via iHeartMedia radio stations throughout the country across more than 150 markets. The CW Network will also exclusively livestream both nights of the festival via CWTV.com and The CW App, and then broadcast a two-night television special on Wednesday, October 4 and Thursday, October 5 from 8 p.m. – 10 p.m. EST/PST.
“Our goal every year is to create the most diverse music festival in the world,” said John Sykes, President of Entertainment Enterprises of iHeartMedia. “The only thing these artists have in common is they are all best in their class.”
The iHeartRadio Music Festival is co-produced by John Sykes, President of Entertainment Enterprises and Tom Poleman, Chief Programming Officer for iHeartMedia. For more details about the iHeartRadio Music Festival visit iHeartRadio.com/festival.
