What gives, Miami? We are well into April, and yet there's a chill in the wind. What's it going to take to start heating things up?
How about a poolside performance from Flo Rida? Maybe a little bit of Kygo live at the Fontainebleau Hotel? Yeah, that would do it. And, just our luck, the iHeartRadio Summer Pool Party is back with that and a whole lot more.
Coming in for a tropical landing Saturday, May 21, the national FM giant will feature performances from the hometown rapper and Norwegian house producer, as well as DNCE with special guest Hailee Steinfeld, Tinashe, Lukas Graham, and Jason Derulo.
"We're thrilled to bring summer's hottest party back to where it began—Miami and Fontainebleau Miami Beach," said Tom Poleman, President of National Programming Group, iHeartMedia in the official press release. "There's no better way to kick off the summer than with an unforgettable weekend that connects our listeners with their favorite artists."
As always, all iHeart stations are now giving away Summer Pool Party packages, which include round-trip airfare, two-night accommodations at the Fountainebleau hotel, and tickets to the weekend's events. Listeners all across the country have the chance to tune in and win until May 13, and there's a special Grand Prize floating around that grants one fan a “fantasy all-access” experience.
It's possible to buy tickets to the show, but not without expensive hotel packages, so don't think you're getting in easy just because you're a local. In the unfortunate and likely chance one doesn't win a pair of tickets, the whole affair will be broadcast on iHeartMedia Mainstream Contemporary Hit Radio (CHR), Rhythmix Contemporary Hit Radio (RCHR), and HOT-AC stations nationwide. The Pool Party will also air nationwide exclusively on The CW Network Wednesday, June 1, at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
But wouldn't you rather be there?
