Out to prove that last year's collection of massive names was no fluke, the Las Vegas-bound iHeartRadio Music Festival revealed its 2012 lineup today, with Aerosmith, Green Day, No Doubt, Swedish House Mafia, Deadmau5, Taylor Swift, Usher and Rihanna among the stars on the bill.
The two-day festival, scheduled for September 21 and 22 at MGM Grand Garden Arena, is also set to include Mary J. Blige, Bon Jovi, Calvin Harris, Brad Paisley, Lil Wayne, Linkin Park, Miranda Lambert, Pink, Shakira, Enrique Iglesias and Pitbull, with more acts to be announced in the coming weeks.
The iHeartRadio fest, billed as the "biggest live concert festival in radio history," launched—along with Clear Channel's iHeartRadio digital music service, which combines access to more than 1,000 terrestrial and digital radio stations—in 2011. Last year's edition brought Lady Gaga, Jay-Z, Coldplay, Alicia Keys, Carrie Underwood and David Guetta, among others, to the stage.
This year's tickets are $71 to $633 per day and go on sale Saturday, July 14 at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster.
