Monsta X Will Be the First K-Pop Group to Perform at iHeartRadio Music Festival

Monsta X is making history once again. Following their historic appearance on the Jingle Ball tour last year, the group will now become the first K-pop group to ever perform at the iHeartRadio Music Festival. Their Daytime Stage performance will take place on Saturday, September 21st, on the Las Vegas Festival Grounds. 

The septet joins the incredible lineup of Juice WRLD, Maren Morris, Billie Eilish, Old Dominion, Zara Larsson, CNCO, Brett Young, and Fletcher. Tickets for the event can be purchased here.

Monsta X recently made their comeback with their new album, Take.2 ‘We Are Here, which debuted at #1 on the Worldwide iTunes Album Chart upon its release. The album features songs such as lead single, “Alligator” and the Steve Aoki collaboration “Play it Cool (Korean Version).” The group is expected to perform their new songs during their comeback stages in Seoul, South Korea starting on February 21st.

Speaking about the new single, Monsta X’s Minhyuk said, “The main focus of “Alligator” is its storm- like melody. Once you hear it, you will never forget it.” Kihyun added, “It will be a song that you will want to listen to again and again!”

They got that right! We are obsessed with the song and have been playing the music video on repeat!

We hope Monsta X performs the single at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas!
