Sold-out music festival coming to your Xbox LIVE Dashboard

Clear Channel Radio and Microsoft have signed a deal bringing the entirety of the iHeartRadio Music Festival right to your Xbox 360 dashboard.

Tomorrow and Saturday, the music festival will come to your living room live in HD from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. It’s supposedly celebrating the launch of customizable music stations as part of Clear Channel’s iHeartRadio app.

“Since we announced the Festival in July, listener demand has been unprecedented, with fans across the country clamoring for a chance to be part of the biggest live concert in radio history, a show that sold out in just ten minutes,” said John Hogan, President and CEO of Clear Channel Radio. “This partnership with Xbox 360 means that those who cannot be in Las Vegas in person will have the opportunity to experience the event as well through an HD video stream exclusively on Xbox LIVE.”

And there’s a good reason that the show sold out so quickly — take a look at the list of performers:

  • Lady Gaga
  • Jay-Z
  • Coldplay
  • Kenny Chesney
  • The Black Eyed Peas
  • Steven Tyler
  • Alicia Keys
  • Jennifer Lopez
  • Carrie Underwood
  • Jane’s Addiction
  • Nicki Minaj
  • David Guetta
  • Rascal Flatts
  • Bruno Mars
  • Sublime with Rome
  • Kelly Clarkson

There will also be special performances from Usher, Sting and Jeff Beck. So yeah, a lot of big acts all in one go. I wouldn’t go so far as to call this the biggest music festival ever, though…Coachella and Bonnaroo probably dwarf this, but don’t have as many big names.

To access the concert, just sign in to Xbox LIVE. The stream will be available for both paid and free users.
