Super Bowl LLII will take place at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, where the Philadelphia Eagles will face off against the New England Patriots. Surrounding the Super Bowl are the numerous celebrity parties that often feature live performances. ESPN, which usually hosts a Super Bowl Party, has opted not to have one this year.

Celebrities who will be performing at Super Bowl parties this year include Jennifer Lopez, Snoop Dogg, Jamie Foxx, the Chainsmokers, Florida Georgia Line, Pink, Imagine Dragons, Sean “Diddy” Combs, Dave Matthews Band, Future, Paul Oakenfold and Gwen Stefani.
