The Preakness InfieldFest will include performances by Pitbull and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. Both will play extended sets on the main stage in the public Infield on the third Saturday in May for the 138th Preakness Stakes.
Pitbull rose fame with his first #1 and the 2012 Billboard Music Award for Radio Song of the Year, “Give Me Everything” from his album Planet Pit. Pitbull has toured in Latin America, Canada, Europe, the United States, Japan and Australia. Pitbull’s current single is “Don’t Stop The Party," featured on his new album Global Warming. “Don’t Stop The Party” comes on the heels of Pitbull’s 2 million-selling single “Back In Time,” the chart-topping anthem from the action-adventure-comedy Men In Black 3.
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis have emerged as a premier national hip-hop group known for their live shows and innovative music videos. Last year was a banner year for the duo. Their debut full-length album, The Heist, shot into the #1 spot on iTunes and debuted at #2 on the Billboard charts without the support of a traditional record label. While on their 70-city sold out world tour supporting The Heist, their single, “Thrift Shop”, landed them at #1 on the Billboard charts.
