Super Bowl 50 Host Committee Announces Entertainment Lineup for Super Bowl Week

Today the Super Bowl 50 Host Committee announced the entertainment lineup of its free-to-the-public fan village, “Super Bowl City presented by Verizon.” With more than 35 free performances by Grammy-winning headliners, community performers and local Bay Area favorites, Super Bowl City will showcase two stages, The City Stage presented by the Levi’s® brand and the Fan Stage in the Fan Energy Zone powered by SAP.

“Over the course of nine days, visitors to Super Bowl City will be treated to free concerts by some of the world’s most notable artists and the Bay Area’s finest performers,” said Keith Bruce, CEO of the Super Bowl 50 Host Committee. “Whether it’s local groups like Loco Bloco or musicians like the Bay Area’s Chris Isaak, the culture and fabric of the region will be well-represented.”

In a break from tradition, Super Bowl City will be open for an extra weekend this year, providing local residents the opportunity to experience the excitement of Super Bowl 50 before out-of-town guests arrive. Super Bowl City will open Saturday, January 30, with the day’s activities topped off with the Host Committee’s “Saturday Night Lights” celebration: the official re-lighting of the iconic Bay Lights on the Willie L. Brown, Jr. Bay Bridge, followed by the Macy’s Fireworks Show and a performance by the Bay Area’s own Chris Isaak.

Located in the Sue Bierman Park area of Super Bowl City, The City Stage presented by Levi’s® is being produced in conjunction with LiveNation, and was designed to showcase a wide variety of free live musical, cultural and performing arts entertainers throughout Super Bowl Week.

Located in Justin Herman Plaza within Super Bowl City, the Fan Stage is being produced in conjunction with e2k events and will be the “live” area of the Fan Energy Zone, serving as a presentation space for community partners, celebrity appearances and photo opportunities, and the main space for the DJs and MCs.
