Keith Urban, Thomas Rhett and Kane Brown will represent country music during the 2020 iHeartRadio Music Festival. Celebrating their tenth anniversary, iHeartRadio shared the full lineup early Tuesday morning (7/21).
In addition to Urban, Rhett and Brown, performances will include BTS, Coldplay, Migos, Miley Cyrus, Usher and more. Brown will also be joined by special guest Khalid.
In keeping with social distancing guidelines, this year’s two-day concert will be held virtually, with live performances recorded on stages in Nashville and Los Angeles. A virtual audience fan wall will be featured of iHeartRadio station winners.
“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, in a press release. “It’s our commitment to help the artists whose music we play here at iHeart stay connected to their fans.”
“It’s hard to believe that this September will be the 10th iHeartRadio Music Festival,” added 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.”
Fans can stream the 2020 iHeartRadio Music Festival on The CW App and on CWTV.com. It will also broadcast on iHeartMedia radio stations on September 18 and 19 at 9 p.m. ET/ 6 p.m. PT. The full concert will air on The CW Network on Sunday, September 27 (8:00-10:00pm ET) and Monday, September 28 (8:00-10:00pm ET).
