The iHeartRadio Music Festival is a series of performances from different musicians that first began in 2011. This year, on September 17 and 18, it was held in Las Vegas, Nevada and included artists such as Olivia Rodrigo, Coldplay, and Billie Eilish.

There were several memorable moments during the festival, a fight had broken out between two people while Olivia Rodrigo was performing her hit song “Drivers License.”

“There was only one award given at the festival, the iHeartRadio Titanium award, which was awarded to Rapper 24kGoldn.” This award honors artists for reaching one billion total audience spins in 2021.

A fan favorite of the night was Billie Eilish performing with her brother Finneas, they performed her hit songs “Happier Than Ever,” “Bad Guy,” and many more. Her total performance time was around 23 minutes with this being her third year at this festival.

Fans of older music were also excited that night because the popular 80s band Journey closed out the festival with the final song of the night being their hit song “Don’t Stop Believing.”
