Rolling Stone, in partnership with The Crane Bay event venue in Indianapolis, announced the all-star music lineup for its Super Bowl party celebrating the 150th anniversary of BACARDI.

LMFAO, Lupe Fiasco, Cobra Starship and Gym Class Heroes will perform on Saturday, February 4, in what is sure to be one of the biggest parties of Super Bowl weekend. The Saturday party kicks off Rolling Stone’s weekend of parties at The Crane Bay, a renovated industrial warehouse located two blocks from Lucas Oil Stadium. The celebration falls on the 150th anniversary for BACARDI, and will be the culmination of the past century and a half of legendary BACARDI parties. Attendees can expect an all-VIP celebration, high-profile attendees, top-shelf cocktails, and additional surprises at what is sure to be the can’t-miss party of the weekend.

LMFAO’s “Party Rock Anthem” has topped the charts in 19 countries and been certified multi-platinum in the United States. The Los Angeles-based duo combines hip hop and electric dance on its second album, Sorry for Party Rocking, which also features the hit single “Sexy and I Know It.”

Chicago-native Lupe Fiasco broke into the hip-hop world by performing on Kanye West’s “Touch the Sky,” which led to Jay-Z agreeing to co-executive produce Lupe Fiasco’s Food & Liquor. The debut album was nominated for numerous awards and reached No. 1 on the Billboard Rap Album chart, and his most recent single, “The Show Goes On,” is certified double platinum. Fiasco was nominated for three GRAMMY awards this year, including Best Rap Album for LASERS, his latest release.

Dance-punk band Cobra Starship found commercial success with its 2009 album Hot Mess, which reached number four on the Billboard Hot 200. The band recently headlined tours in the United States and internationally, and its newest album, Night Shades includes the hit single “You Make Me Feel…

Known for its blend of rock, pop and alternative hip-hop, Gym Class Heroes first broke onto the radio airwaves with their No. 1 hit, “Cupid’s Chokehold/Breakfast In America,” which set the record for holding the top spot on the Top 40 radio charts for the most consecutive weeks by a band. After scoring one of the biggest songs of 2010 with his solo smash “Billionaire (featuring Bruno Mars),” frontman Travie McCoy returned to Gym Class Heroes to release the band’s fourth Decaydance/Fueled By Ramen release, The Papercut Chronicles II, last fall. The band’s multi-platinum lead single, “Stereo Hearts (feat. Adam Levine),” became their second No. 1 hit, with its follow-up, “Ass Back Home (feat. Neon Hitch),” already starting its ascent up the charts.

The party continues on Sunday for the ultimate Rock & Roll Tailgate, where both Super Bowl attendees and local residents will enjoy pregame festivities including music by top-selling musical guests and classic tailgate food.
