iHeartRadio Music Festival adds J. Cole to the line-up

J. Cole is among the new names added to the iHeartRadio Music Festival line-up.

The festival will return to the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas this September, and it looks like an absolute extravaganza. Running over the weekend from the 17th-18th, the event hosted by Ryan Seacrest features names including Billie Eilish, Coldplay, Dua Lipa, Florida Georgia Line, Journey, Khalid, Lil Baby, Maroon 5, Nelly, and Weezer set to appear.

There will also be performances in the day at Area15’s Daytime Stage from younger artists, including The Kid Larioi, Da Baby, 24kGoldn, Yungblud, Olivia Rodrigo, Tate McRae, and many others.

J. Cole is also set to headline Rolling Loud in New York and California this summer. The rapper returned earlier this year with his new album The Fall Off, which was the rapper’s first release since 2018’s KOD.’ 

Hip Hop Hero’s review of The Off Season said: “There isn’t much to dislike about the record. In fact, the only thing I can pick out that turns me off the LP is that it is too short, but, in truth, even that would be harsh criticism. The reality is that the album is 12 rounds of potent and pure unbridled artistry.

“Like watching Muhammad Ali dance his way across the ring, guiding himself around the vicious world in front of him, delivering bloody noses and fat lips at will and never truly settling in one place except greatness.”
