Lorde is an awards show phenom in 2017. She rocked out “Green Light” in a makeshift karaoke booth on stage at the Billboard Music Awards in May at T-Mobile Arena on the Las Vegas Strip, captivating the crowd with one of the most intimate performances of the night. Then in June, the singer and songwriter dubbed “pop’s edgiest teen” by Rolling Stone in 2013 closed out the iHeartRadio MuchMusic Video Awards in Toronto by performing that hit along with “Perfect Places.”

Lorde will be back in Vegas, and back with iHeart, in September. Tickets for this year’s iHeart Radio Music Festival, set for September 22 and 23 at T-Mobile (with Daytime Village concerts and events set for the Las Vegas Village grounds across from Luxor) go on sale July 28, and the New Zealand sensation is one of many stars topping the bill. The Weeknd, Miley Cyrus, Harry Styles, Coldplay, DJ Khaled, Chris Stapleton, Kings of Leon, Big Sean, Pink, Thirty Seconds to Mars, Niall Horan, David Guetta and Thomas Rhett are all part of the lineup, plus a special guest performance by Kesha is in the works. Daytime Village performers will include Migos, Halsey, Flume, Little Mix, French Montana, Bleachers, Kelsea Ballerini, Judah & The Lion, Bebe Rexha, Noah Cyrus, Hey Violet, Cheat Codes, All Time Low, Khalid and Julia Michaels.

With such an unbelievable lineup of veteran, established stars and up-and-coming performers, this year’s festival promises to be one to remember.
