Tiësto, 55, will then stay on as the in-game turntablist, spinning during game breaks, with portions of his performance to be featured during the Super Bowl LVIII broadcast on CBS and live streamed on Tiësto’s social channels. “I’m excited to be a part of the Super Bowl LVIII!” Tiësto said in a statement about his gig as the first DJ to perform throughout the game. “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!

The NFL’s director of event presentation and content, Tim Tubito, added, “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. As one of the most influential DJ/producers who helped define the culture of Las Vegas and electronic music around the world, Tiësto is the perfect artist to help us create an unforgettable game day experience for our fans, players and viewers everywhere.”

In addition to Tiësto, this year’s game will feature Usher rocking the halftime show, as well as Reba McEntire singing the National Anthem during the pre-game, which will also host Post Malone doing “America The Beautiful” and Andra Day singing “Life Every Voice and Sing.” The NFL has featured a DJ set before the game since Super Bowl LIV in Miami in 2020, when DJ Khaled did the honors, with D-Nice taking over the next year in Tampa Bay, followed by Zedd in Los Angeles and DJ Snake in Phoenix in 2023.
