Kaskade To Replace Tïesto As Super Bowl LVIII In-Game DJ


Kaskade

Kaskade is the new in-game DJ for this Sunday's Super Bowl LVIII after Tïesto was forced to pull out following a “personal family emergency.”

Tïesto announced the news on his socials, writing, "Me and my team have been preparing something truly special for months, but a personal family emergency is forcing me to return home Sunday morning. It was a tough decision to miss the game, but family always comes first. Thank you to the NFL for the collaboration and looking forward to working with them to deliver something incredible together in the future!"

In his place, fellow superstar DJ Kaskade will now fill in as the "first in-game superstar DJ" to play the Super Bowl. He will spin during player warm-ups and stay on the decks to play music during game breaks, with portions of his performance to appear during the Super Bowl LVIII broadcast.

Kaskade made an announcement of his own on his socials, acknowledging that it was a dream come true for a lifelong NFL fan.

"As a kid who grew up in Chicago watching the Super Bowl every year with my family this chance to actually be part of it is absolutely mind blowing," he wrote. "Las Vegas has been my second home for the past decade, as an architect of creating a landscape that includes House and Dance Music residencies as part of its destination. To be able to be the first Electronic Musician to be part of the full game experience of the Super Bowl held in Las Vegas seems like coming home, and I’m beyond excited to represent my community."
