The iHeartRadio Music Festival, which debuted four years ago in celebration of the successful iHeartRadio all-in-one digital service, has quickly become one of the most talked about music events of the year.  In fact, a recent study sponsored by Eventbrite and Mashwork named the iHeartRadio Music Festival among the top two most buzzed-about music festivals in America.  The Festival is a live representation of the diverse music catalog that fans find and enjoy through the iHeartRadio app, which is ranked the No. 1 digital audio service with over 345 million downloads; the app reached its first 20 million registered users faster than any digital service in Internet history.

More than 20,000 music fans experienced the amazing two-day event LIVE, including thousands of broadcast radio listeners from across the country who won all-expense-paid dream trips to Las Vegas as part of iHeartMedia’s summer-long on-air and online promotion.

The iHeartRadio Music Festival was a dominant social media topic throughout the weekend, and #iHeartRadio continues to trend worldwide with tweets and retweets from fans as well as artists and Festival presenters.

Once again, the iHeartRadio Music Festival featured a host of thrilling collaborations and special guest appearances including Steve Aoki and Will.i.am; Ariana Grande and Childish Gambino; Usher and Chris Brown; 50 Cent and G-Unit; Ed Sheeran and Macklemore; and Calvin Harris and John Newman, who closed the 2014 Festival.  Additionally, Jason Derulo, Alicia Keys and Lil John were surprise guest performers.
