As we prepare for Super Bowl LIII, which kicks off on February 3rd at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia, the three-night Bud Light Super Bowl Music Fest will happen at the city’s State Farm Arena, Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Aerosmith, Ludacris and Bruno Mars are among the festival’s performers. It runs January 31st through February 2nd.
Accepting the area’s steady hip-hop scene, hometown artists Ludacris, Migos, Lil Yachty, Lil Baby, Metro Boomin and Lil Jon will perform on January 31st.
Aerosmith, with Post Malone scheduled to join the rockers for their set the next day. And Bruno Mars and Cardi B are expected to round it all up on Feb 2nd.
In an interview, Lil Jon sharedwhy he wanted to participate in the event, despite some others 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.”
