Super Bowl Music Fest heads to Footprint Center

Footprint Center, home of the NBA’s Phoenix Suns, has been announced as the host of the fourth edition of the Super Bowl Music Fest, with the event to take place from February 9-11, 2023.

The announcement was made by On Location, the official hospitality partner of the NFL, and Bud Light, the league’s official beer sponsor and the presenting partner of the Super Bowl Music Fest.

Next year’s event will take place in the lead-up to the Super Bowl itself, which is scheduled for February 12 at State Farm Stadium, home of the NFL’s Arizona Cardinals. The three-night Super Bowl Music Fest will connect the city of Phoenix with the NFL and music communities as part of the festivities surrounding the Super Bowl.

Acts that will perform at the Super Bowl Music Fest will include Paramore, Dave Matthews Band, Imagine Dragons and Kane Brown. Tickets go on sale tomorrow (Friday) at 10am local time.

The 2023 Super Bowl Music Fest will be the fourth edition of the event. The inaugural edition took place at Atlanta’s State Farm Arena in 2019, before Miami’s AmericanAirlines Arena hosted in 2020 and Los Angeles’ Crypto.com Arena staged in 2022.

Paul Caine, president of On Location and IMG Events, said: “This music festival continues to be at the heart of the Super Bowl fan experience and will continue to offer everyone an unforgettable lifetime of memories. We couldn’t be more excited for those in Phoenix to experience an amazing line-up of headliners who normally wouldn’t perform together for fans.”

Ralph Marchetta, general manager of Footprint Center, added: “Super Bowl Music Fest is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and Footprint Center is honoured to be this year’s host. We look forward to welcoming fans for three nights of incredible music and showcasing downtown Phoenix as an entertainment destination.”
