The 2019 iHeartRadio Wango Tango really brought the heat for this year’s official kickoff to summer! The event, which took place on June 1st at the LA Galaxy’s home field of Dignity Health Sports Park, was live audio broadcasted on over 100 iHeartRadio Stations, livestreamed on LiveXLive, and will be broadcasted on Freeform for the 2nd year in a row.
Hosted by Ryan Seacrest, the show featured performances by some of the world’s biggest superstars, including Taylor Swift, Jonas Brothers, Halsey, Zedd, 5 Seconds of Summer, Ally Brooke, Ava Max, Fletcher, and Tomorrow X Together. There were even some surprise special guests, including Panic! At The Disco’s Brendon Urie, Tyga, and YUNGBLUD. Additionally, Ryan’s co-host, Jordin Sparks, hung out backstage with the stars to talk all things summer.
ANOTHER ONE in the books! DJ Khaled hosted this year’s Kids’ Choice Awards, bringing the fun and slime to a whole new level. There was even a slime jacuzzi! Some of our favorite celebs were in attendance and received the highest kids’ choice honor of getting slimed, including Will Smith, Chris Pratt, Adam Sandler, and Josh Peck.
Migos turned up the party performing a medley of their hits, including “Stir Fry,” while the original cast of “Spongebob Squarepants: The Broadway Musical” closed out the show (before our host, DJ Khaled, got the ultimate sliming, of course!) with an energetic performance of the legendary character’s theme song.
The show also gave audiences sneak peeks at highly anticipated and upcoming movies, “Shazam!,” “Dora and the Lost City of Gold,” and Disney’s “Aladdin.” Presenting these sneak peeks were none other than some of the cast members themselves, including Will Smith, Naomi Scott, Zachary Levi, Isabela Moner, and Micheal Peña.
The 2018 iHeartRadio Wango Tango by AT&T was INSANE. It was the first large event to take place in the new soccer stadium located in downtown LA, BOC Stadium. The energy from the audience was out of this world; we couldn’t have asked for a better show.
Performing at this year's Wango Tango were Ariana Grande, Shawn Mendes, Meghan Trainor, 5 Seconds of Summer, NF, Miguel, Janelle Monáe and Marshmello with a special guest performance by Logic, Backstreet Boys, and Sabrina Carpenter. Plus, it was all hosted by Ryan Seacrest.
Fun fact: Once we finish filming the festival on Saturday night, we leave right from the venue to head over to editing where we put the show together ALL NIGHT and deliver the next morning. Talk about a jam packed 26 hours in the life of Dempsey Productions.
Show will air on FOX, August 5th 8pm ET/7pm CT
iHeartCountry Festival 2018 was an amazing show that never stopped serving out incredible moments!
Hosted by Bobby Bones and Candace Cameron Bure, this year's iHeartCountry Festival lineup included superstar country artists like Luke Bryan, Keith Urban, Dustin Lynch, Cole Swindell, Maren Morris, Sugarland, Luke Combs, Billy Currington, Dan + Shay, Jon Pardi and Brett Young. And in almost every single performance, there was an amazing surprise from each star.
Fun Fact: During the show, there was a ton of behind-the-scenes action! We had a giant school bus, decorated especially for iHeartCountry Festival. Either before (or after!) our artists played on stage, they visited the bus and were shot by our film crew to create an incredible show open, you’d have to see to believe.
The 2018 NHL Awards were jam-packed with emotional tributes, daring magical acts, and awards presented to the incredible talent within the league.
The hosts of the show were the players and coaches. This year we believed that it was important to truly recognize that not only on the ice, but off the ice as well, the players and coaches are incredible and truly serve and inspire their community. When it comes to the tragedies that took place in Parkland, Vegas, and Humboldt, everyone stepped up to help their communities put the pieces back together. Dempsey Productions was proud to be a part of honoring these teams!
Fun Fact: TBD

What is more iconic than the Kids’ Choice Awards? The slime, the stars, the party!
