The NFL has announced headliners Big Sean, Bazzi, and the Detroit Youth Choir for the NFL Draft Concert Series, part of the 2024 NFL Draft from April 25-27.

The 2024 NFL Draft Concert Series, presented by Bud Light, kicks off on April 25-27. The three-day event will focus on Detroit’s vibrant music scene, with performances from Big Sean, the Detroit Youth Choir, and Bazzi.

Detroit native Big Sean kicks off Day One at 6:15 PM ET, taking the stage before Draft selections begin on Thursday, April 25. A multi-platinum artist, philanthropist, and entrepreneur, Big Sean has solidified his place as a voice of culture since hitting the scene in 2011.

Day Two will see the Detroit Youth Choir performing at 6 PM ET before the Draft selections on Friday, April 26. Teaching and developing students through music education, dance, and theatrical arts, the Choir’s vision is to offer Metro Detroit youth a world-class performing arts experience that develops their creative talents. A special guest appearance by the NFL Players Choir will take place at the end of the Detroit Youth Choir’s performance.

Friday will conclude with a post-Draft fireworks show and tribute to Detroit music, leading up to Saturday’s performance from Michigan-born Bazzi to close out the 2024 Draft Concert Series. The Los Angeles-based multi-platinum singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer broke into the Top 20 of the Billboard Hot 100 with his 2018 single, “Mine.” Bazzi has generated billions of streams, sold out numerous shows, and most recently released his third full-length album, Infinite Dream.

“With the Draft coming to Detroit, we knew the importance of representing the rich cultural history and music legacy of this city as part of our NFL Draft Concert Series,” said Tim Tubito, director of event presentation and content at the NFL. “With an incredible lineup of headliners who all hail from the region, we’re excited for these great artists to help us create an amazing on-site experience for our fans and prospects.”

The NFL also recently announced Detroit artist Angela Davis will perform “Lift Every Voice and Sing.” Caleb Carroll, a Detroit native and fan-favorite performer at Detroit Lions games, will sing the national anthem from the Draft Theater stage on Day One.

All performances as part of the NFL Draft Concert Series will take place at the Draft Theater in front of the Campus Martius Park. General fan viewing for the series is free with the NFL OnePass app, standing room only, and will be on a first-come first-served basis.
