Kaskade Set to Make Super Bowl History, Replacing Tiësto as First In-Game DJ
Kaskade is set to make history as the first in-game DJ in Super Bowl history after stepping in for Tiësto, who canceled his performance due to a personal family emergency.
The announcement came shortly after Tiësto’s unfortunate cancellation earlier today. Kaskade, a Grammy-nominated artist known for his high-profile DJ residencies in Las Vegas, expressed his excitement at the opportunity.
In a statement, Kaskade shared his enthusiasm for being part of such a significant event, especially in his second home of Las Vegas. He expressed gratitude for the chance to represent the electronic music community on such a grand stage.
Kaskade will perform a set before kickoff and continue as the in-game DJ during breaks throughout the game. Portions of his performance will be broadcast on CBS during Super Bowl LVIII and streamed live on his social media channels.
Super Bowl LVIII is scheduled for February 11th at Las Vegas’ Allegiant Stadium, featuring the Kansas City Chiefs against the San Francisco 49ers. At the time of writing, the 49ers are favored by 1.5 points according to ESPN.
