The iHeartRadio Music Festival Is Back!


Last year's iHeartRadio Music Festival was one of the most incredible experiences of my life and with one festival under my belt, I'm even more excited for what's in store!

The official lineup is being released TOMORROW MORNING (Wednesday, July 23rd) at 6AM!

Looking through my photos and videos from last year's festival is getting me even more stoked for this year!

Interviewing THE SUMMER SET - winners of Macy's iHeartRadio Rising Stars contest. This was minutes before they got to open the entire show!

Right after we wrapped up, I went to "the loft" - my broadcast area for the night right above the stage! As you can see, I was a bit excited.

Immediately after THE SUMMER SET finished, the lights went down and a figure walked out onto the part of the stage that jutted out into the crowd.

An old-school microphone dropped from high in the rafters and when the lights came on everyone in the building realized...IT WAS DIDDY! He introduced Robin Thicke as the crowd went insane!

I even ran into some familiar faces...FRANKIE AND GEENA!

The next morning, it was time to hit the iHeartRadio Music Festival Village Stage...

We also interviewed iHeartRadio Music Festival village superstar Cher Lloyd...

And Danity Kane (who performed together for the first time in five years) to name a few!

It was then back to the hotel to clean up, watch ESPN for 5 minutes (where I learned my Ohio State Buckeyes had won 76-0 earlier that afternoon) and right back to MGM for NIGHT #2!

Between Paul McCartney, Drake, Bruno Mars, Maroon 5, Phoenix, Ke$ha, Miguel, Zedd, Thirty Seconds to Mars, Tim McGraw, Miley Cyrus, and Justin's safe to say it topped NIGHT #1!

I was posted in the iHeartRadio broadcast room for most of the night as the performers and celebrities rolled through.

Below, Elvis Duran from Z100 in New York and Ellen K from KIIS-FM in Los Angeles talk to The Wanted!

Bobby Bones interviews Tim McGraw in the iHeartRadio broadcast room.

Being creepy with Kennedy from ALT 98.7 in Los Angeles.

Bobby Bones and Kennedy talk to Floyd Mayweather about being ridiculously, stupid rich.

After this interview, I headed upstairs to catch the final performances of the night by Drake and Justin Timberlake & then it was off to the official after party at Light!

Where are those pictures?  Sadly, they will never be seen.

Did my phone die or are they just too inappropriate for the Internet? I guess no one will ever know...

I did, however, get this photo texted to me the next day. I guess you could say it was a good night.

The countdown is on until THIS YEAR! 6am will all be revealed!
