Last year, powerhouses Kylie Minogue, Halsey and Imagine Dragons tore up the Padang Stage during the Singapore Grand Prix season. This time, get ready for more explosive acts arriving on our shores for Formula 1, held from 15-17 Sep.
First up will be pop-rock band OneRepublic (“Apologize”, anyone?), who proves that it’s never too late to re-emerge. They will be hitting the Padang Stage (Zone 4) on the first night, 15 Sep, after the last track activity.
The next day on 16 Sep, pop starlet Ariana Grande will be taking to the crowds before the race on the Padang Stage.
Later that evening, chasing their “Closer” co-singer Halsey onto the Marina Bay Circuit will be duo The Chainsmokers, who will be performing after the last track activity on 16 Sep at the Padang Stage (Zone 4).
Revive your nostalgia for the 1970s with Duran Duran, who will be performing pre-race on two days: 16 (Village Stage, Zone 1) and 17 Sep (Padang Stage, Zone 4).
Finally, look out for English hit Seal performing on 17 Sep at the Village Stage (Zone 1) before the races.
Other announced acts are Lianne La Havas (15 and 16 Sep) and George the Poet (16 and 17 Sep). That leaves one last headlining act left to be announced – the closing act after the races on 17 Sep, which in previous years was helmed by Imagine Dragons and Bon Jovi.
Early-bird tickets are on sale until 8 May, from $248 (UP $268) for the three-day pass.
