Since the inaugural event, over 200,000 spectators have attended each year – and it’s no surprise with the chance to see the world’s finest drivers go wheel-to-wheel under lights at speeds of up to 320km/h, threading the barriers around Singapore’s picturesque Marina Bay.
Adding to the electrifying atmosphere in 2019 are some of the hottest acts from the international music scene – Muse, Fatboy Slim, Toots and the Maytals, and Larkin Poe, and many more to be announced soon.
For the fans, it’s an incredible made-for-Instagram sight – with the track set against the backdrop of Singapore’s iconic heritage buildings, modern architecture and a stunning skyline. It’s all so accessible, with plenty of dining options, entertainment, hotels, subway stations and shopping malls just a stone’s throw away.
