So now it’s officially official. Three-time Grammy Award winning multiplatinum band MAROON 5 will perform at the PEPSI SUPER BOWL LIII HALFTIME SHOW on CBS at Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta on Sunday, February 3, 2019. Maroon 5 will feature a slate of guest artists including Grammy nominated rapper Travis Scott and Atlanta native Big Boi.
Despite many artists declining this years’ gig due to the NFL’s reputation, their stance on Colin Kaepernick and policies of players kneeling during the national anthem. Many locals were unhappy that a local act was not invited to headline the event, but there will be much local entertainment outside the main event.
The acts will bring together the broadest range of musical genres ever seen on the Super Bowl stage.
The Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show is the most watched musical event of the year.
Pre-game entertainment throughout the city include:
The Foo Fighters will headline the DirecTV Super Saturday Night concert on Feb. 2 at Atlantic Station. Run the Jewels, featuring Atlanta rapper Killer Mike, will open the show
The first-ever Bud Light Super Bowl Music Fest will bring:
Jan. 31 event – Ludacris & Friends and Quality Control Presents – includes Migos, Lil Yachty, Lil Baby, Metro Boomin’ and a DJ set from Lil Jon.

Jermaine Dupri has been tapped by the Atlanta Super Bowl Host Committee as the music producer for Super Bowl Live, the week of free fan events preceding the Feb. 3 game at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
