Announcing the show in a video statement, host Ryan Seacrest said: "This is a once in a generation gathering of artists and fans from all over the country for a true, must-see music event.
"Listeners from all over America will travel to Las Vegas to celebrate the next generation of iHeart Radio, while seeing the greatest musicians in the world on one stage."
The Black Eyed Peas will break their recently announced hiatus to appear at the event, which also sees acts from other genres such as country stars Carrie Underwood, Kenny Chesney and Rascal Flatts and rockers such as Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler, Jane's Addiction and John Mayer perform. Usher is also lined up for a guest appearance.
Further announcements of additional artists to join the bill will be made in coming weeks.
