CES 2021 to feature iHeartMedia Session with Billie Eilish, Dua Lipa and Ryan Seacrest
The first all-digital CES 2021, 11-14 January 2021, will feature an iHeartMedia conference session on how technology has enabled some of today’s most famous artists to continue to create and introduce new music and immersive experiences for their fans during the pandemic. Moderated by nationally-syndicated on air host and TV personality and producer Ryan Seacrest, the session will feature a fireside chat with singer and songwriter Dua Lipa and a special performance by Billie Eilish on 12 January 2021 at 7pm EST, available only to registered CES attendees.
Live music venues and studios may have been forced to close their doors given the limitations during the pandemic, but iHeartMedia and leading innovative artists are using technology to redefine the experience and deliver music to their fans in new and exciting ways.
“As we have reimagined CES 2021 we are thrilled to welcome Billie Eilish, Dua Lipa, and Ryan Seacrest to the stage,” said Karen Chupka, EVP, CES, CTA. “iHeartMedia has been a driving force with using technology to create immersive music experiences for consumers. Our session with these artists will explore the art of the possible and the transformation that is happening in the entertainment industry.”
“iHeartMedia has always taken pride in our ability to bring artists and fans together, but when the pandemic hit we had to get even more creative,” said Tom Poleman, chief programming officer for iHeartMedia. “At a time when all of us are searching for ways to feel connected with the music and artists we love while remaining safe, we’re proud to have pushed the limits of technology to innovate and create intimate experiences for music fans nationwide, whether it’s taking our entire roster of iHeartRadio nationally-recognised events virtual or creating one-of-kind shows meant to inspire and support millions of Americans.”
