Last year's inaugural iHeartRadio Music Festival saw a huge success, and the event sold out in minutes.
Speaking about this year's iHeartRadio, 22-year-old Swift divulged that she specifically marked her calendar to attend.
"Unfortunately last year I couldn't be a part of the iHeartRadio Music Festival because I was on tour," explained Switft in a video on iHeartRadio.com. "And it was one of those things where I just saw everyone tweeting about it, I saw everyone talking about streaming it live on the internet and like, just how exciting and amazing it was, and I just thought, 'Next year I'm saving the date, I'm making sure that I'm there."
The country music darling is one of today's top performers, with legions of fans including over 16 million followers on Twitter.
"The idea that you can bring so many different formats and genres of music together and have everyone appreciating it- it highlights the differences between different musical acts," Swift continued. "It makes that a cool thing, it's like, 'Wow, we just saw so many different genres of music back to back,' and it's an amazing thing to do that."
