The WM Phoenix Open is just weeks away, and construction of the Coors Light Birds Nest – one of the most popular attractions at “The People’s Open” – is officially underway. The nearly 50,000-square-foot tent will house four nights of incredible live acts Feb. 9-12, 2022, and limited tickets are still available at www.coorslightbirdsnest.com.
“I’m sure this is a welcome sight for everyone who missed the Coors Light Birds Nest last year due to health and safety restrictions,” said (WM Phoenix Open Tournament Chairman Dr. Michael Golding. “We’re absolutely thrilled to begin the build of this incredible venue – one of the largest of its kind in the world – and give the people what they want at ‘The People’s Open.’”
Kicking things off on Wednesday (Feb. 9) is Diplo, an American DJ and co-creator and lead member of the electronic dancehall music project Major Lazer, a member of the supergroup LSD with Sia and Labrinth.
Headlining the Thursday, Feb. 10 show is American country music star Sam Hunt with Special Guest and multi-platinum recording artist Russell Dickerson. Hunt is well-known for slipping hip-hop phrasing and modern R&B rhythms into country-pop songs, marking a significant generational shift in country music.
Four-time GRAMMY award winning rapper and songwriter Macklemore will headline the third night of the Coors Light Birds Nest on Friday, Feb. 11.
Rounding out the Coors Light Birds Nest lineup is Norwegian-born music producer/DJ Kygo, along with special guests Sam Feldt and Forester, who will take to the stage on Saturday, Feb. 12.
