Singapore’s Grand Prix is far from just a race -- it’s one big, loud party.
Held every September on the Marina Bay Street Circuit, Formula One’s only night-time race offers a rare chance to see top racers compete in Asia. To date, Sebastian Vettel, Lewis Hamilton, and Fernando Alonso have tackled the circuit’s 5.073-kilometer track and won, with Vettel having won the most races at four times.
The first Singapore Grand Prix debuted in 2008. Since then, the event has turned into a much-anticipated highlight in F1’s World Championship, drawing fans from all over the globe.
During F1 season, glitzy concerts draw massive crowds nightly. Visitors expect no less than a star-studded lineup that has seen the likes of Bon Jovi, Maroon 5, Pharrel Williams, John Legend, Robbie Williams, the Pet Shop Boys, Rihanna, The Killers, Justin Bieber, Tom Jones, Katy Perry, Shakira, Linkin Park, and Mariah Carey taking the stage. Local, regional, and international acts also perform to open for the headliners.
