There's no doubt that the lineup for this upcoming weekend's iHeartRadio Festival reads like a who's who in pop music today. Justin Timberlake, Bruno Mars, Ke$ha, and Katy Perry will be performing alongside such mega-music icons as Elton John and Paul McCartney, and even Britney Spears will make a special appearance. Oh wait, did you say you wanted to see some twerking? Well, twerktastic Miley Cyrus will be there, too.
But it's not just pop music that's on tap for the Las Vegas festival, which takes place September 20-21 at the MGM Garden Arena and at pop-up stages across from the Luxor Hotel. British arena-rockers Muse will be on hand and will surely deliver one of the incredible live performances they've become known for, as well as Queen fronted by Adam Lambert. And for those of you who want to get your groove on, dance music stalwarts Tiesto and Benny Benassi have got you covered. Meanwhile, country heartthrobs Tim McGraw and Keith Urban are sure to get iHearts a-fluttering.
Also on the bill are fun., Phoenix, Chris Brown, Drake, Maroon 5, Bruno Mars, J. Cole, Zedd, and Thirty Seconds to Mars, as well as special guest Robin Thicke.
This year, the iHeartRadio Music Festival is going for broke with the addition of The Village, which features the aforementioned pop-up stages at The Lot across from the Luxor on Saturday, September 21, from 10am to 4pm. Find out more details here. Cyrus will be performing at The Village, and rumor has it that the controversial diva will be playing her new single "Wrecking Ball" live for the first time.
