The 5th edition of the iHeartRadio Music Festival kicks off this Friday, September 18, in Las Vegas, NV. While there are music festivals out there to suit all tastes in music, the iHeartRadio Music Festival is one of the few to bring all those styles together in one place thanks to an extensive variety of artists. In 2015, performers at the two-day festival include everyone from The Weeknd to Kenny Chesney to Diplo, among other huge names such as Kanye West, Duran Duran, Sam Smith, Blake Shelton, Janet Jackson, and Coldplay.



The iHeartRadio Music Festival lineup and festival dates were announced this week. Now in its third year, the festival will take place Friday, Sept. 20, and Saturday, Sept. 21 at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas. Ryan Seacrest hosts.

Since the two-day show features performances by some of the biggest acts in music, it's no surprise that Justin Timberlake is headlining the concert. Not only did he partner with iHeartRadio for his album release party, but he's already had an incredible year in terms of "The 20/20 Experience" sales. By the time the show rolls around in autumn, it'll be a great opportunity for him to promote his second album. Plus, his tour partner, Jay-Z, was even one of the headliners for the 2011 fest (a full lineup can be found below) — so maybe he'll make an appearance?

Even if Hov doesn't show up, there are plenty of other artists joining Timberlake at the show.
