Mercedes Benz Stadium, the location of Super Bowl LIII.

Atlanta hosts Super Bowl LIII at Mercedes Benz Stadium on Feb. 3, and with it come a few cool events.

This year, pop band Maroon 5 will headline at the Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show, along with Travis Scott and Big Boi. Along with this performance, Maroon 5 has performed in venues like The Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, as well as large concert festivals overseas. Travis Scott is a somewhat new artist in comparison to Maroon 5, and has acclaimed lots of recognition for his most recent album, “Astroworld”. The third performer, Big Boi, is a famous rapper formerly known for being apart of the group OutKast, who has a few big hit songs like “Hey Ya!”.

Even though this halftime show has three great performers, the Super Bowl committee had a hard time booking  artists who actually wanted to perform. Artists such as Rihanna and Pink both turned down offers to perform at the Super Bowl because of the allegations 49’ers QB Colin Kaepernick had against the NFL that it colluded to deny him a spot on any team. Artists usually do not hesitate when asked about performing on a stage this big, but the controversy with Kaepernick changed that.

Another event the Super Bowl is bringing to Atlanta is the Bud Light Super Bowl Music fest. Starting today, artists like Migos, Aerosmith, Ludacris, and more are performing all three days leading up to the night of the Super Bowl. Tickets for today’s fest start at $49 while Friday and Saturday are much more expensive starting at $100 and $250 respectively.

No matter the price, this music festival will bring added attention to Atlanta and more people to the city as well. With both the Super Bowl, the Bud Light Super Bowl Music festival, and various other activities, reports say that over 150,000 people will be coming into Atlanta over that four day weekend. Hotels are booked up, restaurants are getting slammed, and there will be more traffic since the Olympics. Check out this article about what to watch out for traffic-wise here.
