The iHeartRadio Festival has been going strong since 2011. It's gone above and beyond to make sure each year features a range of diverse musical acts, some of which are up-and-coming talents and others who aren't just established; they're superstars. In its very first year, the show was headlined by Jay-Z, Coldplay, Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj and more.
