2016 Formula 1 Singapore Airlines Grand Prix is planning a star studded line up with concert performances by queen of pop, Kylie Minogue, retro band KC and the Sunshine Band, the iconic Queen + Adam Lambert and English indie rock band, Bastille, that brought us their hit song Pompeii. And not to forget, Pentatonix, two time Grammy winning a cappella group from Texas, will be performing covers of your favourite pop songs.

All these will be happening at F1 Night Race in Singapore from 16 to 18 September 2016. But it seem like Singapore GP have yet to announce the headliner performance on the 18 September at the Padang Stage. With the current line up, we expect someone even bigger will be in town to giving an unforgettable finale for this year’s race. Keeping our fingers crossed.

Here are the performance dates & venues for the current lineup:

By positioning the Padang stage centrally, overall Fan Zone capacity will increase and will be split into six sections for easier and safer crowd control. The front of house that controls spotlights and audio towers will be tucked in front of the heritage trees on Connaught Drive so no valuable viewing space will be lost behind the towers. Overall, even the  furthest viewers from stage will be much closer than in past years. Additional super screens will be installed on the far right and left of the stage to give a wider viewing opportunity for races and concerts which will take the concert experience all the way into the Esplanade Park.
