Two artists a part of the third annual iHeartRadio Music Festival lineup – Miley Cyrus and Keith Urban along with Ryan Seacrest – recently revealed which other acts would join them in Las Vegas for the “biggest live music event in radio history.” The two day event at MGM Grand Arena will take place September 20 and 21 and boasts 20 of the greatest musicians and bands today across multiple genres.

Justin Timberlake will be in Vegas after his Legends of the Summer tour with Jay-Z concludes and prior to his solo tour and album release. Bruno Mars will have finished his Moonshine Jungle arena tour in the States just before the iHeartRadio Music Festival. Maroon 5, with the most expensive concert ticket of the bunch, will be in the middle of the 2013 Honda Civic Tour with Kelly Clarkson.
