iHeartRadio Music Festival: Ryan Seacrest Shares Vegas Faves

Ryan Seacrest is in Las Vegas this weekend to co-host the 2017 iHeartRadio Music Festival, which features a ton of live performances by acts like The Weeknd, Coldplay, Kesha and Harry Styles.

This will be the iHeartRadio personality’s seventh festival, so he’s a bit of an expert on the city. 

What’s your favourite thing to do in Vegas?

“My favorite thing in Vegas is to go to the iHeartRadio Music Festival. It’s an event like no other. More star-studded performances and unique collaborations than at any other music event that I’ve ever been to – and it just keeps getting better. If you love music, it’s just something you shouldn’t miss. It’s turned into a bucket list item for sure! On another weekend, I would say that folks should also check out my friend Jennifer Lopez’ All I Have show at the Axis Theater inside of Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino. It's an unforgettable concert experience.”

What are your favourite places to eat in Vegas?

“Food is one of my passions and Vegas has become a food lovers’ mecca. Joël Robuchon, Nobu Matsuhisa, Daniel Boulud and many other top chefs have opened one or more restaurants there, including L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon, Nobu, DB Brasserie, and many more. Also, Aureole has an amazing wine selection – the bottles are housed in a really spectacular four-storey wine tower.”

What is your go-to drink when you’re in Las Vegas?

“Smart Water. It’s hot in the desert and you need to stay hydrated. At evening events when I’m off the clock so to speak, my cocktail of choice always involves Casa Dragones tequila.”

Do you have any favourite places to go when you’re in Vegas?

“People-watching in Vegas is pretty spectacular but if you are looking for a more offbeat excursion, I have also heard that the Neon Museum on the north end of the Strip is cool, where you can see famed signs, lights and other architectural artifacts.” 

The iHeartRadio Music Festival kicks off Friday night at 10 pm ET. You can watch it live at iHeartRadio.ca
