“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.”

iHeartRadio ALTer EGO is the newest in iHeartMedia’s successful roster of major concert events, which includes the iHeartRadio Music Festival, the biggest live concert event in radio history, which features more than 20 A-list artists across every music genre on one stage; the iHeartSummer’17 Weekend by AT&T the nationwide iHeartRadio Jingle Ball Concert Tour; the iHeartCountry Festival; the iHeartRadio Fiesta Latina; and the iHeartRadio Music Awards, which generated 165 billion social media impressions.

“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 REM, 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.
