Marshmello will headline this year’s UEFA Champions League final opening ceremony presented by Pepsi on Saturday 29 May immediately before the clash between Manchester City and Chelsea.

In a one of a kind performance, the platinum-certified music producer, artist and DJ will deliver a virtual six-minute spectacle using the latest in immersive technology.

The performance will be aired in over 200 countries 10 minutes before kick-off.

“This really has been a year like no other,” Marsmello said.

“I’m looking forward to giving my sport, music, and pure entertainment fans a show like they have never seen. Thanks to Pepsi and UEFA, that is exactly what I am going to bring to the world - a performance that everyone can enjoy.”

The Pepsi opening ceremony is now in its fifth year, having been launched in 2016.
