Rob Gronkowski Returns to Big Game Weekend
Gronk Beach presented by The Beast Unleashed, the First Adult Beverage From Monster Brewing, Takes Place at Talking Stick Resort, Saturday, Feb. 11
4X Super Bowl Champion Rob Gronkowski knows a thing or two about Big Game Weekend and this year, he's competing for the MVP of Fun at the return of his personally curated music festival Gronk Beach presented by The Beast Unleashed, the first-ever adult beverage from Monster Brewing. The former University of Arizona star will have a homecoming of sorts, celebrating the biggest weekend in sports with the ultimate beach party and music festival taking place at the legendary Talking Stick Resort, Scottsdale's hottest entertainment destination, on Saturday, Feb. 11, beginning at 12 p.m. Produced by Medium Rare, with headliners 21 Savage, Diplo, and Lil Jon, Gronk Beach will continue to raise the bar, bringing unparalleled Gronk family energy to Phoenix. Tickets and WYNN Nightlife VIP Tables will be available via presale on Thursday, Jan. 12, beginning at 10 a.m. MT at GRONKBEACH.com. Register for tickets now.
Grammy Award-winning rapper 21 Savage will head to the pool as co-headliner for the event. 21 Savage, alongside Drake, put out a Billboard #1 album in late 2022 and, since entering the scene in 2016, Savage has gone platinum — 16 times. Performing with 21 Savage at Gronk Beach is Grammy-winning superstar DJ DIPLO and hip-hop icon Lil John. Founder of global dancehall group Major Lazer, the critically acclaimed DJ has racked up dozens of industry award nominations and taken home three Grammy awards and three iHeart Radio Music Awards. Known for his part in creating the popular southern music and lifestyle movement of Crunk, Lil John is one of the most recognizable icons in music and pop culture. In addition, DJ Irie, Bijou, and Sommer Ray will round out the lineup.
With prices starting at $199, all tickets will include a six-hour open bar, complimentary bites, and the greatest views of the legendary headliners. All general admission tickets, VIP tickets, and WYNN Nightlife VIP Tables can be purchased online at GRONKBEACH.com beginning this Thursday. Adding to the excitement, Gronk Beach fans will have the first opportunity to sample The Beast Unleashed, an all-new adult beverage from our friends at Monster. As the presenting partner of this year's Gronk Beach, The Beast will unleash many unforgettable experiences, including an epic onstage cheers moment with Gronk himself.
With massive cultural impact, Gronk Beach has sold out thousands of tickets in minutes in both 2020 (Miami) and 2022 (Las Vegas) while attracting major talent, including The Chainsmokers, Kaskade, Rick Ross, and GORDO (Carnage), as well as celebrity attendees such as Bill Belichick, Lizzo, Julian Edelman, Nate Diaz, Travis Kelce, and so many more. As the most over-the-top poolside party of all time, Gronk Beach has garnered media from the Official Super Bowl Pregame Show on Fox, ESPN, CNN, Forbes, Sports Illustrated, CNBC, Barstool, The Late Show with James Corden, and more.
Gronk Beach presented by The Beast Unleashed 2023 will be no different — blitzing the competition once again. With dedicated poolside cabanas and bars featuring custom beverages from the likes of Monster Energy, Licor 43, and Teremana Tequila, sponsored experiences and activations, luau performers, and musical superstars, Gronk Beach will quickly become the "must attend" event of Big Game Weekend. For those looking to experience the biggest competition of the weekend outside of the game itself, guests will have to look no further than the Corona-sponsored celebrity volleyball game taking place on Saturday at Corona Beach. Live from the Corona pool, this volleyball game will test celebrities such as Gronk himself as they go head-to-head in an epic game of volleyball in the water.
"You may not see me playing in the big game this year, but there's one thing I'm not retiring from and that's having a great time. You'll get what you expect from me (and more) at Gronk Beach — great music, flowing drinks, lots of dancing, and basically the most exciting event of the weekend outside of the Big Game itself," said Gronk. "Thanks to the support of The Beast Unleashed, guests can expect great performances by some of my favorite artists in the world, including my pals Diplo, 21 Savage, Lil Jon and more."
Monster and all-new flavored malt beverage The Beast Unleashed are proud to present Gronk Beach. Featuring custom experiences, bars, giveaways, and activities, The Beast will keep the party going. Fans looking to be among the first to sample The Beast can head over to The Beast Bar experience or step out of the sun and recharge at the Monster Energy activation located near the pool. Beyond celebrating its VIP release, The Beast will take over the mainstage with a custom "cheers" moment led by the Gronk Beach event host, Gronk himself. Grab a can and raise your hands — here's to the greatest Gronk Beach yet.
"Everyone's favorite energy drink, Monster, is turning 21, so we figured why not celebrate by making our first adult beverage," says Renold Aparicio, VP of Monster Equity Brands. "To make The Beast Unleashed, we brewed up the smoothest-tasting alcohol, hit delete on the caffeine and sugar, then blended it with Monster's tried-and-true flavors. We can't wait to unleash The Beast for the first time at Gronk Beach before it is released this month in select states across the country."
Corona embodies "La Vida Más Fina" or "The Fine Life" as a modern expression of the brand's lifestyle. Corona is proud to partner with Gronk Beach to curate memorable consumer experiences across the event. Introducing an over-the-top Corona Beach activation featuring a pool, volleyball, photo moments, and more, Corona will ensure all fans ages 21 and older find la vida más fina in Phoenix. Amongst the sand and pool at Corona Beach, an epic celebrity volleyball game will take place. Featuring Gronk, Camille Kostek, and other celebrities to be announced, this epic game of volleyball will put our favorite celebrities head-to-head in the biggest game outside of the Big Game.
