Seattle’s defending Super Bowl champions are kicking off the regular season Sept. 4 with a big party beforehand.

Platinum-selling musician Pharrell will perform outside of CenturyLink Field for the 12th Man an hour before the Seahawks play the Green Bay Packers as the NFL kicks off its 95th season.

Seattle-based rockers Soundgarden will kick off the free event with a performance. The 60-minute pregame show will air from 4:30-5:30 p.m. on NBC and NFL Network.

Pop singer Ariana Grande will sing the national anthem.
