Kaskade Steps in for Tiësto at Super Bowl’s First In-Game DJ Slot

Grammy-winning DJ Tiësto has had to step back from his role as the Super Bowl’s first in-game DJ due to a family emergency, leaving fans disappointed but understanding of his priorities. In an announcement on social media, Tiësto expressed his regret at missing the event but emphasized the importance of family.

The unexpected turn of events led to music producer and DJ Kaskade stepping in to fill Tiësto’s shoes. In a statement, Kaskade expressed his excitement at the opportunity, describing it as a surreal moment for someone who grew up watching the Super Bowl with his family in Chicago. As the first electronic musician to be part of the full game experience at the Super Bowl held in Las Vegas, Kaskade sees it as a homecoming and a chance to represent his community on a global stage.

Kaskade will join a lineup of performers at the Super Bowl, including Reba McEntire, Post Malone, Andra Day, and Usher, who will headline the halftime show.

Super Bowl LVIII, featuring the San Francisco 49ers vs. the Kansas City Chiefs, promises to be an unforgettable event, airing on CBS and streaming on Paramount+. Kickoff is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. ET/3:30 p.m. PT.
