iHeartMedia has announced the return of the successful iHeartRadio Country Festival. This year, country music’s biggest superstars will hit the stage at the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas on Saturday, May 2nd, in a live celebration of all things country.
The country music of the iHeartRadio app will come to life onstage in Austin with an extraordinary lineup including Tim McGraw, Brantley Gilbert, Rascal Flatts and Brad Paisley, with more to be announced, and will be hosted by iHeartMedia’s nationally-syndicated country music personality Bobby Bones. The iHeartRadio Country Festival is part of iHeartMedia’s roster of incredibly successful nationally-recognized concert events, including the iHeartRadio Music Festival, the iHeartRadio Ultimate Pool Party, the iHeartRadio Jingle Ball Concert Tour, the iHeartRadio Ultimate Valentine’s Escape and the iHeartRadio Fiesta Latina.
“This is truly a night of Country’s All-Stars,” said John Sykes, President of iHeartMedia Entertainment Enterprises. “Every single one of these artists can headline an arena or stadium on their own, but on this night they will share the stage to celebrate the amazing music on our iHeartRadio country stations and the iHeartRadio app.”
“This is truly a night of Country’s All-Stars.”
“The country format has great talent and on-air personalities who have such a strong bond and loyalty with their fans and there is no better way to celebrate that relationship than at a live event.” said Tom Poleman President of National Programming Platforms for iHeartMedia. “With our more than 120 country stations nationwide we have the ability to bring the biggest events and one-of-a-kind experiences to our loyal listeners that no one else can provide.”
Fans who cannot attend the iHeartRadio Country Festival will be able to listen live on iHeartMedia’s Country music radio stations in their local markets or on iHeartRadio.com. Streaming details will be announced soon.
Tickets go on sale to the general public on March 28th.
