Janet Jackson, Kanye West, Taylor Swift, & Sam Smith Lead iHeartRadio Music Festival 2015 Line-Up

Published: Thursday 30th Jul 2015 by Sam

Janet Jackson is playing no games with her comeback campaign.

The Queen of Pop has just been named as one of the headliners at the 2015 iHeartRadio Music Festival, which takes place September 19th-19th in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Details below…

This year’s instalment of the annual extravaganza takes place during the 49-year-old’s super-selling ‘Unbreakable World Tour,’ which kicks off in Vancouver, Canada on August 31st.

Joining Jackson on the iHeart bill are major names such as Taylor Swift, Sam Smith, Kanye West, and Coldplay.

Peep the announcement video below to see run-down of other confirmed talent.

The festival will live stream on Yahoo! and iHeartMedia’s radio stations. It will air as a two-night special on The CW Network on Sept. 29-30.


Yes, yes, and yes at that line-up. In specific regard to Janet, it’s awesome to see her booking such a commercial/Top 40 gig while essentially being an indie act. Needless to say, it’s a testament to the power in her name and the mainstream excitement surrounding her comeback.

    • Shady81 July 30, 2015

      Maybe your just p*** because your fave wasn’t invited to perform this year I mean she probably was upset that Iheart couldn’t abide by her rider in supplying her with a 24 count of Always maxi pad with wings I guess that’s why she forgot the memo at Etta James Funeral several years ago that if you’re gonna have a heavy flow make sure you try the super long pads and not those panty
      liners because you’re actually bleeding not spotting theres a difference.

    Where is FLOP SLEEP on the charts this week? Still no where to be found…not even with Tranets DESPERATELY recruit of J. Cole to turn that flop song around or that CHEAP video! Hahahahaha! #NOSLEEPFLOPPED #FLOPSLEEP

    • DIESEL July 30, 2015

      HI hater, u can complain and b**** about janet in 30 years if your idol today is still producing hits. Janet may not be on the pop chart, but u can fiND #NoSleeep on the Adult R&B chart which is technically the song genre. So yah, u have bragging rights in 30 years if your favorite artist is still around. Good luck with that. Lmfao!

    • Tomtim July 30, 2015

      It is #4 and climbing on R&B Adult charts and #19 on R&B Hip Hop AirPlay… So shut up u dumb ass Madonna fan! You people are the such haters… Ur life must be a sad one… Awww

      • Sage July 30, 2015

        ROFLMAO! The Adult R&B songs chart means NOTHING. The chart has like 4 people on it. Neither does the R&B airplay chart. Speaking of which, FLOP SLEEP has fallen COMPLETELY OFF of the main R&B/Hip Hop songs chart. Hahahahaha. She cant even stay afloat there.

        P.S. not a Madonna fan so try again you Tranet hasbeen since Dubyas first term following loser. Luvn how Tranet is a) flopping! and b) how her RETARDED fans think everybody against her must be a Madge stan. LOL LOL LOL

        You would probably love to know who I actually stan for but nope.

    • jjsrb July 30, 2015

      It’s not a commercial, mainstream song. No one expected a chart success. Its propose was just to make some buzz until the real comeback single. But whatever, it will probably re-enter Hot 100 this week.

  10. Austin July 30, 2015

    Queen of the Stage! So looking forward to this show.

  11. Biting Truth July 30, 2015

    This is all about Kanye and Taylor Swift headlining. Janet may as well be an opening act.

    • truth(nicki the reason A.I. is cancelled and Meek playn ha!!) July 30, 2015

      U may as eell kiss my fabulous ass. ????

    • Adrian July 30, 2015

      You say that as if Janet Jackson wasn’t a star to begin with. She is still a legend and has been in this industry for many years. Just because she’s not on the Pop charts doesn’t define her credibility as an artist or successful singer and regards to relevancy is to be debated especially when you have many assholes in the line who are incredibly irrelevant to my eyes.

    • jjsrb July 30, 2015

      Actually, Janet’s name is in every title on every website reporting this news. Others are just numbered at the end of the article.

  12. Oscar The Grouch July 30, 2015

    it’ll be interesting to see if she can still dance like she used to kii

    • Sandra August 13, 2015

      Janet can’t dance anymore, have you seen her 2011 tour? She could barely walk on stage, much less try to dance.

  13. Chazz July 31, 2015

    I wish DAWN would perform!

  14. another bty day something ain’t wrong July 31, 2015

    Great for jante Jackson and other artist too it gonna be interesting

  15. Sandra August 13, 2015

    Janet Jackson is so overrated, she could never sing and her dancing isn’t that impressive. She will forever live in the shadow of her vastly more talented brother Michael Jackson.

    • hansomegumdrop November 17, 2016

    • hansomegumdrop November 17, 2016
