Collaborations over the years have included Lady Gaga and Sting, Miley Cyrus and Billy Idol, Prince and Mary J. Blige, Gwen Stefani and P!nk, Kesha and Joan Jett, J. Cole and TLC, and so many more.

This year’s festival includes performances from BTS, Coldplay, Kane Brown with special guest Khalid, Keith Urban, Migos, Miley Cyrus, Thomas Rhett, Usher, and more. Fans can tune in to watch the festival live on The CW App and CWTV.com on September 18 and 19 at 9pm ET/6pm PT, and relive all of the epic performances during a two-night Festival highlights special on September 27 and 28 from 8-10pm ET/PT.
