With the F1 season well and truly under way, thoughts have turned to the Singapore night race, taking place across the weekend of September 14 to 16. More importantly, for music fans, the names of the starts that will be occupying the stages over the weekend of the Formula 1 Singapore Airlines Singapore Grand Prix. Adding to the electrifying atmosphere of the street circuit will be The Killers, Jay Chou, Liam Gallagher, Dua Lipa, Martin Garrix, Simply Red, The Sugarhill Gang, Bjorn Again, Sekai No Owari and Young fathers.
No matter what your musical taste, there is something for everyone from the chart topping Dua Lipa to the King of Asian pop Jay Chou and numer one global DJ Martin Garrix; from ricking las Vegas born The Killers to the outspoken former Oasis lead singer and successful solo artist Liam Gallacher and for those that are looking to go a little further back, UK pop stars Simply Red, Abba tribute Bjorn Again and The Sugarhill Gang, one of the first crossover rap artists. It’s a well-balanced and exciting line-up that offers the perfect foil for what’s happening on the track.
These headliners are just the tip of the entertainment iceberg, with a packed programme that includes international talent alongside local trail blazers. The Afro Celt Sound System, UK’s House Gospel Choir, Indonesian folk-pop duo Stars and Rabbit and China’s rising DJ star Lizzy Wang are just a selection of the fantastic performers waiting to keep you entertained across the weekend. This year also sees the introduction of a single day Bay Grandstand ticket at S$108 for Friday, S$188 for Saturday and S$208 for Sunday. Fans who prefer the flexibility that walkabout ticket options offer can now choose from the Friday Zone 4 Walkabout (S$78), Saturday Zone 4 Walkabout (S$168) and Sunday Zone 4 Walkabout (S$188) tickets, in addition to the single-day Premier Walkabout tickets.
While there is no taking anything away from the white-knuckle action that takes place on the world’s most famous night race, having such a broad and eye-catching entertainment line-up is what makes the Singapore Airlines Singapore Grand Prix one of the most popular on the circuit. It promises to be a high octane weekend with a selection of world class stars taking to the various stages. Make sure you book your tickets in advance to avoid disappointment.
