More tickets available
Limited tickets priced from S$888 are now available for two new grandstands – Bayfront at Turn 17 and Raffles at Turn 5. All tickets to the Formula 1 Singapore Airlines Singapore Grand Prix 2023 provide access to the concerts at the Padang Stage in Zone 4.
Patrons will need to have a valid ticket on the relevant day of an act’s performance. Priced from S$108 for a single-day ticket and S$398 for a three-day pass, official tickets can be purchased from www.singaporegp.sg and via authorised ticketing partners.
Singapore GP will continue to work together with stakeholders and the local authorities to identify new viewing sites to partly mitigate the overall reduction in capacity, due to the closure of the Bay Grandstand as part of the redevelopment of The Float at Marina Bay.
