2021 iHeartRadio Music Festival ends on a high note

Can’t get over the fun? Well, this is how every music lover felt as the annual ‘iHeartRadio Music Festival’ concluded its two-day concert last September 18, 2021.

The iHeartRadio Music Festival is one of the biggest music celebrations that happened this year. In line with its 11th year of delivering the widest and diverse music talents across the world, iHeartRadio did not let down all music fans. With performances from today’s biggest names in the music industry, the iHeartRadio Music Festival was filled with extreme excitement.

As mentioned, the two-day music concert features two nights of non-stop chart-topping hits, musical World Premieres, and spectacular stages from the world’s most iconic and hottest emerging artists.

Main stage performances were led by Billie Eilish, Cheap Trick, Coldplay, Dua Lipa, Florida Georgia Line, Journey, Khalid, Lil Baby, Maroon 5, Nelly, Sam Hunt, Weezer, and more.

The Daytime stage brought out music from DaBaby, Olivia Rodrigo, The Kid LAROI, Saweetie, All Time Low, 24kGoldn, Russell Dickerson, Yungblud, Gabby Barrett, Tate McRae, Conan Gray, Addison Rae, and more.

“This year’s Festival will be historic for many reasons,” said Tom Poleman, Chief Programming Officer for iHeartMedia. As expected, iHeartMedia filled the hearts of many music enthusiasts and fans worldwide with the best music entertainment ever experienced in the span of two days.

Some international stars were spotted in the event, joining in the fun. Among these stars were Tayshia Adams and Zac Clark from the hit couple show Bachelorette, Jana Kramer, D’Andra Simmons, Martin Garrix and Maejor of Area21, and many more celebrities.

From the many epic scenes in the music festival, Coldplay had it best. With their latest single, “Higher Power,” the British rock band hyped the music scene. The band continued through their songs, “Viva La Vida,” “Fix You,” “Human Heart,” and “A Sky Full of Stars.” However, when they were about to perform their song “A Sky Full of Stars,” frontman Chris Martin was unable to put on his jacket completely, which caused the group to restart the song. Seamlessly, the band maintained the level of excitement, concluding their stage with confetti falling from the ceiling.

Remarkably, the two-day music festival ended with the performance of Journey. The band kicked off their setlist with “Separate Ways,'' continuing with “Anyway You Want It,” “Lights,” and “Wheel in the Sky.” Of course, with the vocals of Arnel Pineda rock star performances from Neil Schon, Jonathan Cain, Deen Castronovo, and Marco Mendoza, the band closed the music festival with the greatest hit “Don't Stop Believin'.”

The iHeartRadio Music Festival happened at the T-Mobile Arena and Area15 near the Las Vegas strip, and Ryan Seacrest hosted it.

For those who missed the two nights of spectacular music, the CW Network will be broadcasting an exclusive television special of the 2021 iHeartRadio Music Festival on October 2 and 3, Saturday and Sunday at 8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT.
