The 2016 Formula 1 Singapore Airlines Singapore Grand Prix starts on the 16th of September for a three day main event full of fun and festivities. Since its inaugural race in 2008 with 110 million television viewers witnessing Fernando Alonso’s win, the Singapore GP has always brought in a capacity crowd of over 200,000 spectators. Who doesn’t want to watch high speed performance racing cars going 320km/h in a tight curvy track with near collisions as drivers test their skills against Tarmac and each other.
This year’s Marina Bay Street Circuit and Circuit Park list a multitude of popular international acts as well as local ones for ticket holders. So plan your day well as you are in for a treat throughout the day with music performances from: Kylie Minogue, Queen + Adam Lambert, Imagine Dragons, Bastille, Halsey, KC and The Sunshine Band, Pentatonix, Dynamo, Gentles Bones, Charlie Lim & The Mothership, Take Two, Aarika Lee & The Next Movement, Zsa & Amanda, Zouk DJs, The Koi Boys, The Showhawk Duo, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Bluegrass Band, Sirens with Soul, Aaradhna, and Prateek Kuhad.
If that isn’t enough for you there are roving performances around the park which you can find here, along with the schedule for the performances: http://www.singaporegp.sg/off-track/headliners.
Not to mention that Pit Stop @ Orchard is already set up for people to come down and buy tickets as well as win giveaways and prizes in racing themed challenges.
Now enough about the off-track stuff, which is a dizzyingly list of talents that caters to all sorts of music fans, the race itself is no slouch as it’s a nighttime race with multiple tight corners and cars will be barely scratching the barriers constantly. Watch as the top drivers such as Lewis Hamilton, Nico Rosberg, and Daniel Ricciardo brave the tropical environment where the cockpit temperature can reach 60°C.
