It’s back. The multi-genre iHeartRadio Music Festival that everyone loves to love is returning to Las Vegas. For the third consecutive year, Clear Channel will be taking over the MGM Grand and the Vegas Strip along with hoards of music fans and a long list of ultra-popular performers. Going where radio stations never dared, the iHeartRadio Music Festival features an eclectic blend of pop, rock, country, electronic music, hip-hop and more all on one stage. There’s so much music that it’s spread over two amazing days with plenty of time to enjoy the sights of Las Vegas in between. Perhaps that’s why iHeartRadio Music Festival tickets sell out in minutes every year.
Clear Channel also has a knack for finding up-and-coming stars and featuring their talents before a rocking audience in the MGM Grand Garden Arena. Last year, pop/rock twins Megan & Liz took the stage after winning Macy’s iHeartRadio Rising Star contest. This year, Scottsdale’s The Summer Set beat 24 competitors to earn the same privilege. The Summer Set has a strong indie fan base that helped log hundreds of thousands of votes. Some might already know the band’s emo-pop music from soundtrack features on “Hard Times of RJ Berger”, “Jersey Shore” and even “Dancing With The Stars” where actress Chelsea Kane danced to a song written for her by lead singer Brian Dales. The group was founded by brothers John and Stephen Gomez, and they released their first full-length album in 2009. Jess Bowen is the band’s rocking female drummer, and Josh Montgomery is the guitarist. The Summer Set released their third album “Legendary” in April 2013 and will be touring extensively leading up to their big moment at the festival where they will be performing alongside the biggest names in music.
Considering last year’s lineup, which included everything from Aerosmith to Usher, this is going to be another great September in Las Vegas. Stay tuned to VIP Concierge for more details. We’ll let you know as soon as iHeartRadio releases their 2013 performance lineup. In case you were wondering, two-day passes are the only way to go if you can’t stand to miss a minute of the music.
