Talk about your epic pool parties.

Some of the biggest — and youngest — music stars came out to help their fans celebrate at the iHeartSummer ’17 Weekend at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach. The two day festivities, which kicked off Friday, celebrated all things summer and included performances by Halsey, Miley Cyrus, Noah Cyrus, Backstreet Boys, Fifth Harmony, Tinashe and Luis Fonsi.

Hosted by DJ Khaled, Nick Cannon and Emily Sears, the high energy event included special guest appearances by Los 5, Jake Miller, and even “Bachelor” stars Ashley Iaconetti and Chase McNary.

The jam-packed weekend featured a variety of beach games, events and activities including an celebrity volleyball tournament with such bold faced names as Katrina Bowden from “30 Rock,” comedian Kel Mitchell and Kat Graham (“The Vampire Diaries”). A Friday night highlight was Fonsi, who lit up fans with his No. 1 hit “Despacito” poolside. Another crowd pleaser (judging by the noise) was Fifth Harmony, who introduced their latest single “Down,” and sang such tracks as “Worth It,” “That's My Girl” and “All In My Head (Flex).” The ladies were minus Camila Cabello, who departed the group earlier this year.

On Saturday, Miley Cyrus took the stage to perform her summer singles “Malibu” and “Inspired” as well as party anthem “We Can’t Stop.” In between her set, Cyrus and her younger sister Noah showered the crowd with water guns.

Nineties fave The Backstreet Boys closed out the weekend craziness with a medley of their biggest hits, “I Want It That Way,” “As Long As You Love Me” and “Everybody.” The guys also did a special meet and greet and selfie session in the ballroom with a handful of lucky ducks beforehand.
