“This is the most diverse festival in music and we are excited to once again host a ‘Best in Class’ group of superstar artists to perform on the same stage,” said iHeartMedia executive John Sykes. Tom Coleman, iHeartMedia’s Chief Programming Officer added, “Each performer can sell out on their own, so it’s incredibly rare that you can see them all together on the same stage.”
