Kaskade Is The Super Bowl DJ

On Thursday (2.08,) after Grammy-winning deejay/producer/artist Tiësto pulled out as the Super Bowl‘s first in-game DJ due to a family emergency, Kaskade was confirmed as his replacement for America’s most watched sporting event.

Born Tijs Michiel Verwest OON, Tiësto wrote on social media “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.”

Born Ryan Gary Raddon, Kaskade and the National Football League announced in a shared post on Instagram later Thursday night who would be behind the decks as the first in-game DJ.

“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.” “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” penned Kaskade.

Past DJ pre-game performers include DJ Khaled, Zedd, D-Nice and DJ Snake.
