“When we conceived the iHeartRadio Music Festival we set out to break down boundaries between genres and assemble a collection of the biggest musicians in the world,” said Bob Pittman, Chairman of Media and Entertainment Platforms for Clear Channel. “Jay-Z embodies that range; he has had a defining influence on music, and the creative influence he continues to have on other artists cannot be overstated. Adding him to the line-up is yet one more reason the festival will be a once-in-a-lifetime music event.”
