Pepsi, the NFL and Roc Nation all partnered together to secure the lineup of award-winning performers. 

The Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show will take place on Sunday, Feb. 13, 2022 at the SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, Calif. 

This is the first time a Super Bowl is coming back to Los Angeles since 1993. The halftime show should especially resonate with the host city since Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg and Kendrick Lamar are all from Southern California.

Super Bowl LVI will air on NBC and Telemundo, as well as stream live on Peacock.
