Marshmello to Headline Westgate’s Flagship Event Friday as Lead-Up to the Big Game
Westgate Entertainment District announced that it will be adding a second day to the BetMGM West Fest, an outdoor concert series that will now feature performances by Grammy nominated artist and producer Marshmello and his opener NGHTMRE on Friday, Feb. 10. Eventgoers can purchase tickets for both days, including the country music night during which Tim McGraw and Bailey Zimmerman will perform on Saturday, Feb. 11.
Westgate is offering this additional festival day so locals and visitors can celebrate the lead-up to the Big Game. Jessica Kubicki, the director of marketing for YAM Properties, discussed the location’s excitement for the event.
“With the help of local EDM promoter Relentless Beats, Westgate is able to cater to an even broader audience by adding a new genre to the BetMGM West Fest two-night series,” said Kubicki. “We are thrilled to bring Marshmello and NGHTMRE to our scenic stage in WaterDance Plaza.”
Steps from State Farm Stadium, Westgate Entertainment District will serve as a centralized destination for fan festivities during the Big Game weekend. Concert attendees will enjoy a mix of national and local restaurants in addition to an open-air beer garden near the stage. Westgate and BetMGM will donate a portion of beer garden sales to a local charity.
General admission tickets, starting at $69 (limited quantity), are available for purchase via the event website. VIP options are also available where patrons can enjoy reserved entrance lines, complimentary beverages and light bites, and elevated viewing areas.
Complimentary event parking is available in all of Westgate’s lots surrounding the Entertainment District, excluding Sunday, Feb. 12. However, convenient VIP concert parking is also available for purchase on the event website. All event sales are final and there will be no refunds or exchanges as the event will be held rain or shine. The stadium clear bag policy will be in effect.

Marshmello's star continues to rise as the famously masked Grammy-nominated artist and producer breaks boundaries across the industry. With chart-topping singles and collaborations with the likes of Juice WRLD, Halsey, Khalid, Demi Lovato, Bastille, Kane Brown, Selena Gomez, Jonas Brothers, and many more, Marshmello has clocked a staggering 13 billion streams across Spotify alone. With over 42 million monthly listeners on the platform, he's one of the top 50 most streamed artists in the world on Spotify and the third-most- subscribed artist on YouTube. Featured on the cover of the Forbes magazine "30 Under 30" issue, Marshmello has proved to not only be an innovative producer, but a forward-thinking businessman with his own brand of chocolate-filled marshmallows (“Stuffed Puffs”). In 2022, Marshmello was nominated for a Grammy in the best dance / electronic album category. His most recent single “Numb” with Khalid has continued to climb the charts, recently entering the top 50 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was nominated as the “Song Of The Summer'' at the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards.
In addition to his latest releases, Marshmello teamed up with ESPN’s Monday Night Football to remix the iconic “Heavy Action” theme song and was named the music curator for the 2022-2023 NFL Season. His cooking show, Cooking With Marshmello, relaunched for a second season last month after the first season brought in a global audience of over 250 million fans - Watch it here.
