iHeartRadio Festival will go down Sept. 23 and 24 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. If you can't make it to the live event, it will also be streamed on the CW's app and website, and will air on TV on Oct. 6 and 7. This marks the sixth year of the festival, which last year was featured artists like Kanye West, Demi Lovato, Coldplay, and The Weeknd. This is the festival's first year in Las Vegas, after being held MGM Grand Arena in Paradise, Nev. for the last five years.

Drake will be taking a break from his Summer Sixteen tour that he is currently co-headlining with Future in order to play the event. The tour has grabbed some headlines for Drake's on-stage shots at artists like Joe Budden and Tory Lanez, as well as for when he hinted at an upcoming mixtape. After the iHeartRadio Festival, he'll continue on the tour through the end of October. The final show is Oct. 16 at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J.
