Broncos fan ‘Tiësto’ named NFL’s first-ever in-game DJ for the Super Bowl

The Denver Broncos season ended a few weeks ago, but there is still some good news regarding the franchise.

Next month, Broncos fan “Tiësto” will be the NFL’s first-ever in-game DJ for the Super Bowl. Tiësto will perform a DJ set before the game while the players warm up and fans settle in.

He will also serve as the in-game DJ and play during featured breaks. Tim Tubito, director of event presentation and content at the NFL, explains the rationale behind the decision.

“Each year, we look to elevate the in-stadium experience for our fans, and with our first Super Bowl in Las Vegas, it seems only fitting to embrace the legacy of iconic DJs in this city by having Tiesto bring his signature style to our biggest event,” Tubito said in a press release from the NFL.

“As one of the most influential DJ/producers who helped define the culture of Las Vegas and electronic music around the world, Tiësto is the perfect artist to help us create an unforgettable gameday experience for our fans, players and viewers everywhere.”

In 2015, Tiësto spoke to the Broncos’ official website about adopting the club as his favorite NFL team.

“I’ve always been a football fan, and I’m from Europe, so I didn’t really have a team.” Tiësto said. “But I support all my friends’ teams and one of my good friends is from Denver and also my girlfriend is from Denver so I thought, I’ve got to adopt them.”

Super Bowl LVIII will be televised on CBS on Sunday, Feb. 11.
