Aerosmith and Post Malone are two of the big names confirmed for the Bud Light Super Bowl Must Fest. The event takes place at Atlanta, GA’s State Farm Arena from 31 January through 2 February and it leads up to the Super Bowl LIII, which kicks off on 3 February at the city’s Mercedes Benz Arena.
Ludacris and Bruno Mars are also confirmed for the festival, which additionally gives a nod to the area’s vibrant hip-hop scene with hometown artists Migos, Lil Yachty, Lil Baby, Metro Boomin and Lil Jon joining the bill on 31 January. 1 February features Aerosmith, with Post Malone scheduled to join the rockers for their set. It culminates on 2 February with Bruno Mars and Cardi B.
In an interview with AJC, Lil Jon addressed why he wanted to participate in the event, despite some peers boycotting events related to the Super Bowl (Rihanna turned down headlining the halftime show in support of Colin Kaepernick. Maroon 5 has been tapped to perform the high-profile gig).
“It’s our hometown, we gotta. It’s rare when we’re able to showcase what we love about this city and showcase our city,” Lil Jon said. “I think it’s more about the city than it is anything else. The Super Bowl is the Super Bowl, but this is the city we’ve grown up in, we launched our careers in and the city we live in. It’s about showcasing everything we love about our city.”
“Atlanta is a city with such a strong music culture, that we wanted to work together with our partners at On Location Experiences to bring a music festival to the city that has something for everyone and pays homage to the city’s history of iconic music,” Shana Barry, Director of Experiential, Bud Light told Billboard. “Between bringing some of the biggest acts out there right now along with some local Atlanta flavor, we hope that we can give people a chance to come together, drink a few beers and have an unforgettable experience during Super Bowl weekend.”
