– Taylor Swift, Brad Paisley, Miranda Lambert and Jason Aldean will play the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas in late September.
The artists also will join a line-up featuring Aerosmith, Rihanna, Usher, Bon Jovi, Lil Wayne, Green Day, Swedish House Mafia, No Doubt, Pitbull, Deadmau5, Enrique Iglesias, Linkin Park, Pink, Mary J. Blige, Calvin Harris and Shakira.
"There' s nothing more amazing than the sound of a screaming crowd," said Swift in a video on the festival's web site. "Unfortunately last year I couldn't be a part of the iHeartRadio Music Festival because I was on tour. It was one of those things where I saw everyone Tweeting about, I saw everybody talking about streaming it live on the internet , and I just saw how exciting and amazing it was. I just thought next year, I'm saving the date. I'm going to be there. The idea that you could bring so many formats and genres of music together and have everybody appreciating it, it highlights the differences between musical acts and makes that a cool thing...Every night is a different feeling."
Tickets go on sale at 1p.m. eastern on Saturday, July 14.
