In a groundbreaking move, the NFL has announced that world-renowned DJ Tiësto will take center stage as the first-ever in-game superstar DJ for Super Bowl LVIII. This electrifying performance is set to redefine the in-stadium experience for fans, players, and viewers alike, marking a historic moment for both the NFL and the music industry.
Tiësto’s presence at Allegiant Stadium will kick off with a dynamic DJ set, setting the stage for the game while players warm up and fans settle into the atmosphere. What makes this announcement truly revolutionary is that Tiësto will not only perform before the game but will also continue to play during featured breaks within the game itself. This makes him the first superstar DJ to deliver a continuous performance throughout the Super Bowl, amplifying the entertainment factor for everyone involved.
Tim Tubito, the director of event presentation and content at the NFL, expressed excitement about this collaboration, stating, “Each year, we look to elevate the in-stadium experience for our fans, and with our first Super Bowl in Las Vegas, it seems only fitting to embrace the legacy of iconic DJs in this city by having Tiësto bring his signature style to our biggest event.” Las Vegas, known for its vibrant music scene, will undoubtedly provide the perfect backdrop for Tiësto’s groundbreaking performance.
The Grammy Award-winning and platinum-certified international icon, Tiësto, has played a pivotal role in bringing electronic music to the masses. Having risen from the underground scene, he has graced the main stage of every major international dance music festival, solidifying his status as one of the most influential DJ/producers in the world. With over 36 million albums sold, six Billboard “Hot 100” hits, and more than 11 billion streams worldwide, Tiësto’s impact on the music industry is nothing short of legendary.
Portions of Tiësto’s Super Bowl LVIII performance on February 11, 2024, will be featured on the broadcast by CBS and live-streamed on the artist’s social channels. This move not only caters to the live audience at Allegiant Stadium but also extends the experience to a global audience, allowing fans around the world to witness this historic collaboration between sports and music.
Tiësto himself expressed his excitement, saying, “I’m excited to be a part of the Super Bowl LVIII! And it’s even more incredible that it’s in my favorite place – Las Vegas. Thank you to the NFL for having me. I cannot wait to party with you all at the big game!” His enthusiasm reflects the monumental nature of this performance, as the artist prepares to make Super Bowl history.
This year’s Super Bowl LVIII will mark the fifth consecutive year of featuring a pregame DJ set during player warm-ups.
