Musical Lineup Announced for Jake Paul vs Ben Askren Event

Posted by: Kelsey Sousa

Justin Bieber and Snoop Dogg are just a couple of the A-list celebrities scheduled to perform at the pay-per-view event happening on April 17, 2021, at the Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta. 

Event promoter, Triller Fight Club announced Wednesday a lineup of celebrities scheduled to perform that evening. Those performers include Justin Bieber, The Black Keys, Doja Cat, Saweetie, Diplo, Snoop Dogg, Major Lazer, Ice Cube, and many more. Triller co-founder Bobby Sarnevesht said in a recent statement. 

“Triller has drawn from all its resources in the music world to deliver as epic a music event as ever there was.”

This will be the second event produced by Triller after having a successful fight this past November, which included Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr. That event also featured many musical acts including Snoop Doog who also served as a guest commentator. The November event reportedly sold over one million pay-per-view buys. 

For the entertainment portion, Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Bert Marcus will be leading and directing the storytelling for the fight. In a recent statement, Marcus said

 “I’m proud to be taking it to the next level and lead the direction of an unprecedented sporting event through the lens of music entertainment and unmatched behind-the-scenes access, particularly during this time when people haven’t had many chances to have (shared) important cultural experiences.”

Although the boxing match headliners are Jake Paul and Ben Askren there will be additional matches at the event, such as Regis Prograis vs Ivan Redkach as well as former UFC heavyweight champ Frank Mir vs boxing champion Antonio Tarver. 

This four-hour event will be streaming live on FITE TV for $49.99 on April 17, 2021, and is scheduled to begin at 9 p.m. ET.
