Clear Channel has set the dates for its third-annual iHeartRadio Music Festival. The fest will be September 20th and 21st, returning to Las Vegas's MGM Grand Hotel. Clear Channel will announce the line-up in summer.

The festival began in 2011 as a "relaunch" event to promote Clear Channel's online radio service iHeartRadio. Last year, over 17 million people listened and viewed the festival performances, which Clear Channel says generated over a billion "social impressions" and more than 50 million text-to-win contest entries.

Clear Channel is also bringing back the "Macy’s iHeartRadio Rising Star" contest, where the winning artist or group will perform at the festival.
