iHeartMedia and AT&T have put together a huge lineup for their 2017 bash, and will takeover the Fontainebleau Miami Beach next month.

Fifth Harmony, DJ Khaled, Halsey and Backstreet Boys will perform alongside the 24-year old.

Miley’s younger sister, Noah Cyrus, is also going to take to the stage at the two-day gig.

But it’s not just star-studded performances that will give lucky festival goers a good time.

In addition to the live music, the event will play host to beach games, pool parties, and even a celebrity volleyball tournament.

iHeartRadio’s A-list lineup of DJs will also keep the festival vibes going throughout the whole weekend.

However, Miley has recently came under fire for her comments in a recent interview with Billboard.

Billboard Magazine

Talking about her new single ‘Malibu’, Cyrus spoke about her relationship with hip hop music and her current inspirations.

“I also love that new Kendrick [Lamar] song [“Humble”]: “Show me somethin’ natural like ass with some stretch marks.” I love that because it’s not “Come sit on my d**k”… I can’t listen to that anymore. That’s what pushed me out of the hip-hop scene a little. I am so not that.”

Liam Hemsworth‘s fiancée received huge backlash on Twitter for her comments, with some branding her as being racist towards the hip hop culture.

Yet she is now defending her comments, saying in her latest Instagram post:

When articles are read it isn't always considered that for hours I've spoken with a journalist about my life , where my heart is, my perspective at that time, and the next step in my career. Unfortunately only a portion of that interview makes it to print, & A lot of the time publications like to focus on the most sensationalized part of the conversation. So, to be clear I respect ALL artists who speak their truth and appreciate ALL genres of music (country , pop , alternative …. but in this particular interview I was asked about rap) I have always and will continue to love and celebrate hip hop as I've collaborated with some of the very best! At this point in my life I am expanding personally/musically and gravitating more towards uplifting, conscious rap! As I get older I understand the effect music has on the world & Seeing where we are today I feel the younger generation needs to hear positive powerful lyrics! I am proud to be an artist with out borders and thankful for the opportunity to explore so many different styles/ sounds! I hope my words (sung or spoken) always encourage others to LOVE…. Laugh…. Live fully…. to be there for one another… to unify, and to fight for what's right (human , animal , or environmental ) Sending peace to all! Look forward to sharing my new tunes with you soon! – MC
