U2, STING, DRAKE LEAD iHEART FEST LINEUP

The iHeartRadio Music Festival in Vegas on 9/23-24 will feature performances by U2, Sting, Drake, Britney Spears, Sam Hunt, Florida Georgia Line, Sia, Ariana Grande, twenty one pilots, OneRepublic, Cage the Elephant, Zedd, Tears for Fears, Billy Idol, Pitbull and Usher.

The CW will live stream the whole event, which goes down at the new T-Mobile Arena, on CWTV.com and the CW App, while the two-day TV broadcast is slated for 10/6-7.

The Daytime Village will host performances from Hunt, Panic! At the Disco, Alessia Cara, Troye Sivan, Hailee Steinfeld, The Chainsmokers, DNCE, Bryson Tiller, Cage the Elephant and more, as well as "specially curated interactive experiences," which we're guessing have to do with Pokemon Go and finding the secret emails Putin sent to Trump.

Performances and messages will be shared with the Live Nation-backed Global Citizen Festival, which takes place simultaneously.

A pre-sale for MasterCard holders began this morning; general on-sale kicks off 7/30 at 1pm ET here.

“When we first launched the Festival six years ago people wondered how such a diverse line up of artists would play together on the same stage," said prexy John Sykes. "The fan reaction was immediate, and overnight the Festival became known as the year’s ultimate celebration of the best in all genres of music."

“After five years of producing some of the best lineups to ever take the stage, we’re excited to unveil one of the strongest iHeartRadio Music Festival rosters to date,” said programming overlord Tom Poleman. “This year’s show is a complete cross section of the best artists from every genre of music. The weekend will be a true representation of the diveristy of our iHeartRadio stations across the country as well as the music you find on the iHeartRadio app.”

There'll be a big ol' afterparty on Pittman's jet.
