As the sporting world descends on Los Angeles in anticipation of the city’s first Super Bowl hosting gig in nearly 30 years, another storied event will also make its long overdue comeback. Rolling Stone is back to host one of Super Bowl Weekend’s most sought-after events: Rolling Stone Live. This year’s party will be hosted at Academy in Los Angeles, continuing a decade of tradition that has cemented Rolling Stone as a fixture during football’s biggest weekend.
And after a year away, it’s only appropriate that Rolling Stone Live comes back with a bang: Kid LAROI will be the headlining performer at this year’s event. Past parties have included a star-studded list of performers — Megan Thee Stallion, Diddy, Migos, Ciara, Nas, Avicii, Ludacris, Young Thug, Diplo, Questlove, T-Pain, French Montana, and DJ Khaled — as well as album sneak peaks and special appearances. This year’s party promises to have a few surprises of its own with performances by Kaskade, Tinashe, Iann Dior and a show-stopping DJ set by Lil Jon from the MCM-sponsored outdoor stage.
