Artist of the Week: Coldplay Gears Up for iHeartRadio Music Festival!

It’s the first day of September, and all we can think about is the iHeartRadio Music Festival coming up later this month on September 22nd and 23rd! One of our favorite bands, Coldplay, is also pumped for the festival — they’ll be joining us this year for their third iHeartRadio Music Festival performance! The popular British rock band wowed audiences back in 2014 and 2015, and they can’t wait for another exciting show with their fans.

In the past year, Coldplay has been busy pumping out new music for their latest EP: Kaleidoscope. The EP’s lead single, “Something Just Like This,” is a collaboration with popular dance music duo “The Chainsmokers,” and it quickly rose to No. 5 on the Billboard Top 100 during its second week. The song became Coldplay’s second top five hit; 2008 sensation “Viva la Vida” peaked at No. 1 and earned the band a Grammy for Song of the Year in 2009.

Coldplay shows no signs of stopping anytime soon, and it seems like they’ll keep adding to their portfolio of wildly successful hits like “Yellow,” “ Fix You” and “A Sky Full of Stars.” They’re set to release a live album covering their A Head Full of Dreams Tour, which earned them the award for Best Tour at the 2017 iHeartRadio Music Awards.

For this year’s iHeartRadio Music Festival, Coldplay is joined by a lineup of today’s hottest artists — don’t hesitate to snag your tickets at right away!
