With Atlanta housing such a rich musical scene, it’s no wonder the Internet went up in a fury when it was announced back in September Maroon 5 would be the official half-time show for Super Bowl LIII.

But now it looks like the city is trying to correct a wrong. According to Sports Illustrated, prominent artists from the city such as Ludacris, Migos and Lil Jon will be performing at the EA SPORTS BOWL a few days before the NFL’s biggest fixture. It was also announced by Electronic Arts Inc. and OnLocation Experiences that Lil Yachty, Metro Boomin and Lil Baby will also hit the stage at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta on Jan. 31, 2019.

Super Bowl LIII will take place February 3, 2019 at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. Tickets for the EA SPORTS BOWL go on sale Friday.

Senior Director of Marketing for EA SPORTS Randy Chase stated:

“Atlanta has an incredibly rich history in music, and it was important for us to draw inspiration for the EA SPORTS BOWL lineup directly from our host city. We’re looking forward to celebrating Atlanta’s music culture with some of the city’s most successful and popular artists. We’ve got a great lineup announced already, and a few more surprises up our sleeves that are going to start the weekend off right with an incredible show.”
