ESPN, in partnership with Armitron and other party sponsors are hosting this tenth annual Super Bowl party, rebranded ESPN THE PARTY, in conjunction with the release of ESPN The Magazine's Music Issue.

ESPN THE PARTY will feature special performances by 2014 Grammy Award Nominees Robin Thicke and Kendrick Lamar along with music by Multiple Grammy Award Winner Jermaine Dupri.

Guests can follow the action all night on ESPN's Microsite, @ESPNMag, and use the hashtag#ESPNTHEPARTY to chat with other fans as well as athletes, celebs, brands, and other VIPs. Guests and fans can also follow @ArmitronWatches for an inside look at what is sure to be a memorable event and use the hashtag #MAKETIME to keep track of all the action.

ESPN will take over Lower Manhattan's Pier 36/Basketball City–just a few miles from MetLife Stadium, host of Super Bowl 48.  Guests will mingle with athletes, celebrities, and ESPN talent in our hometown of NYC for a uniquely ESPN experience. "New York State of Mind" themed décor will include a 40ft red carpet; bright lights, skyscrapers, and a starry skyline, welcoming our guests to our home and making it feel as though they have stepped onto ESPN's pages and screens.
