iHeartMedia announced today the first-ever iHeartRadio ALTer EGO concert. The biggest names in Alternative Rock will come together at The Forum in Los Angeles on January 19, 2018 to celebrate everything Alternative Rock. The lineup features Mumford & Sons, Cage The Elephant, Beck, Spoon, Walk the Moon, The National and Dashboard Confessional, with more to be announced.
“We’re extremely excited to add iHeartRadio ALTer EGO to our amazing lineup of world-class iHeartRadio events,” said Tom Poleman, Chief Programming Officer for iHeartMedia. “We’ve seen the incredible response from fans every time our alternative rock performers hit the stage at our legendary iHeartRadio Music Festival and know that listeners across the country have waited for an event like this for some time now. It’s going to be an incredible night.”
“Alternative rock is experiencing an incredible renaissance,” said John Sykes, President of Entertainment Enterprises for iHeartMedia. “Young bands in their 20’s are making music with the same energy and power of the bands like U2, Depeche Mode and R.E.M., that helped to create the format.”
Beginning December 26, iHeartRadio will launch a nationwide promotion to give Alt-Rock fans across the country the opportunity to win a trip to Los Angeles to attend iHeartRadio ALTer EGO. The promotion will run across more than 75 Alternative and Rock iHeartRadio stations. The event will broadcast live across over 60 Alternative and Rock iHeartRadio stations.
