Celebrations for 2024 NFL Draft Presented by Bud Light Kick Off April 25 in Detroit


April 11, 2024

The NFL announced the day one festivities that will take place as part of the 2024 NFL Draft presented by Bud Light on Thursday, April 25 in Detroit.

To kick off the celebrations, attending prospects will walk the NFL Draft Red Carpet presented by Toyota at the iconic Fox Theater. The NFL Draft Red Carpet will begin at approximately 5:20 P.M. ET, with portions televised as part of NFL Network's NFL Draft Kickoff show, with Kaylee Hartung interviewing prospects as they begin their pro journey.

The league will spotlight the city's vibrant music scene throughout the Draft. On day one, Detroit artist Angela Davis will perform "Lift Every Voice and Sing" live from the Draft Theater stage.

Caleb Carroll, a native of metro Detroit and a fan-favorite performer at Detroit Lions games, will sing the national anthem from the Draft Theater stage. For the performance, the Military District of Washington's Joint Armed Forces Color Guard will present the Nation's Colors, and the Michigan Air National Guard will perform the flyover at the conclusion of the national anthem.

Inside the Draft Theater, NFL Network's Colleen Wolfe and Michael Robinson will host activities for night one of the three-day event. The Draft Theater will also be home to the Inner Circle presented by Courtyard by Marriott, where superfans from each club will passionately represent their team.

During each day of the event, the NFL will host free concerts in the Draft Theater as part of the NFL Draft Concert Series presented by Bud Light. On Thursday and Friday, concerts will take place before picks start and feature local artists, along with a post-Draft drone Show and tribute to Detroit music on Friday night. A post-Draft performance on Saturday will close out the major event. Each day, the NFL Draft Concert Series presented by Bud Light will be on a first-come first-served basis and standing room only. Headliners will be announced at a later date.

The league recently announced that the NFL Draft Experience presented by Rocket Mortgage - the NFL's ultimate fan festival - will be free and open to the public from April 25-27. Hart Plaza will host Draft Experience Presented by Rocket Mortgage, including games, exhibits, player appearances and sponsor experiences. The NFL Play Football field at Corner Ballpark presented by StatusPRO will host youth-focused activities, including NFL FLAG skills and drills and football clinics. Fans are encouraged to plan ahead, as capacity is limited, and admission will be on a first-come first-served basis.
