Entering Week 13 of the 2022 NFL season, there’s still a long way to go before we know which two teams will fight for the Lombardi Trophy in Super Bowl LVII at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. But we’ve known since September that Rihanna is making her triumphant musical return as the Super Bowl halftime performer — there might even be a documentary — and, today (November 30), we learned the exciting lineup for the fourth annual Bud Light Super Bowl Music Fest.
The Bud Light Super Bowl Music Fest will get fans ready for the big game on Sunday, February 12, 2023.
Paramore is taking a page out of Rihanna’s book and making their comeback Super Bowl-adjacent. The beloved band will kick off the three-day Music Fest on Thursday, February 9 — one day before the release of This Is Why, their first album since 2017’s After Laughter. The February 10 show will be headlined by Dave Matthews Band with special guest DJ Pee .Wee, and Imagine Dragons and Kane Brown will wrap things up on Saturday, February 11. All three shows will take place at Footprint Center in Phoenix, Arizona.
