Clear Channel Announces iHeartRadio Festival 2014
April 28, 2014

Clear Channel Media and Entertainment has announced that its fourth annual iHeartRadio Music Festival and Village will return to the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on September 19 and 20. CCM+E and Macy's also announced today they have renewed their partnership, which includes a nationwide talent search to find America's next Macy's iHeartRadio Rising Star. 

For the third year of Macy's iHeartRadio Rising Star talent search, Clear Channel's music experts and Macy's have selected 25 up-and-coming artists who will be given a chance to perform on the same stage as music's biggest stars at the iHeartRadio Music Festival 2014 and at Macy's Glamorama events, the retailer's high-fashion and music spectacles this summer. Clear Channel listeners, iHeartRadio fans and Macy's shoppers will have the ability to preview music from the selected artists on iHeartRadio via Macy's exclusive mstyleradio, digital top hits radio station which also broadcasts live in-store at more than 700 Macy's mstylelab Junior's and Young Men's departments nationwide. 

"Macy's ongoing partnership with Clear Channel is a great example of our goal to bridge the gap between fashion, music and pop culture, as both a fashion retailer and an entertainment brand," said Martine Reardon, Chief Marketing Officer for Macy's, Inc. "Leveraging the power of mstyleradio, our iconic fashion and music events and our stores nationwide, which are the hub for incredible entertainment experiences, we will provide an extraordinary platform to an up-and-coming talent to connect with millions of fans." 

"Every year the iHeartRadio Music Festival features the biggest names in music together on one stage as well as historic collaborations you can't see anywhere else ‹ it has truly become the year's unforgettable, can't miss music experience," said Tom Poleman, President of National Programming Platforms for Clear Channel. "Being able to bring such a diverse array of popular artists together, while having the opportunity to introduce listeners to new music and artists through programs like Macy's iHeartRadio Rising Star, is what Clear Channel is all about."

Voting will begin May 5 at www.iHeartRadio.com/RisingStar.  Listeners can also vote by "thumbing-up" an artist's song while listening to mstyleradio. Full artist biographies, music tracks and videos will be available online to help fans choose their favorite artist. Voting ends June 22 and the winner will perform at the iHeartRadio Music Festival. Fans who vote online at iHeartRadio.com/RisingStar will be automatically entered to win a VIP Trip for two to the iHeartRadio Music Festival 2014 including tickets for both nights as well as entry to the Festival Village, airfare, accommodations and an exclusive meet-and-greet with the Macy's iHeartRadio Rising Star winner.
