Hours after Tiësto dropped out, Kaskade — real name: Ryan Raddon — announced that he’d be subbing in, writing on X that “As a kid who grew up in Chicago watching the NFL 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,” he continues. “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.”

Kaskade will spin during Super Bowl 2024 game breaks, with portions of his performance to be featured during the Super Bowl LVIII broadcast on CBS this Sunday.

Upon announcing that he will no longer be playing the gig, Tiësto wrote that “Me and my team have been preparing something truly special for months, but 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. Thank you to the NFL for the collaboration and looking forward to working with them to deliver something incredible together in the future!”
