Gear up for a spectacular line-up of F1 Singapore Grand Prix 2022 events, performances, exclusive menus and more!
We can almost hear the glorious sounds of Formula One cars tearing up the Marina Bay street circuit. After two long years, the exhilarating F1 Singapore Grand Prix 2022 will be steering into town once again from 30 September to 2 October. We give you the lowdown on all the essentials – right from the massive concert lineup to special dining deals to the best hotels to stay at during the F1 Singapore Grand Prix 2022.
All you need to know about F1 Singapore Grand Prix 2022
First things first, let’s get down to basics. For the uninitiated, this will be the 17th round of the 2022 Formula One World Championship. The track length is 5.063km (comprising of 23 turns) and drivers will have to complete a whopping 61 laps. Sebastian Vettel currently enters as the defending race winner. Trivia: in January this year, the Singapore Grand Prix contract was extended to seven years – that means we’ll be hosting the race up to 2028!
Off-track entertainment FTW
Exhilarating races aside, the Singapore Grand Prix is highly-anticipated for its entertainment line-up too. It’s no wonder why, as the stage plays host to a stellar range of artists and musicians every year. This year’s edition will see over 100 hours of entertainment including 92 acts across nine stages.
Headliners include American electronic music producer and DJ Marshmello (30 September at Zone 4), Irish pop vocal group Westlife (1 October at Zone 4), American rock band Green Day (2 October at Zone 4), American musical group Black Eyed Peas (1 and 2 October at Zone 4 and Zone 1), English rock band Suede (1 October at Zone 1), Australian rapper The Kid Laroi (2 October at Zone 4) and American girl group TLC (1 October at Zone 1). Now, that’s one exciting line-up.
We can’t skip the general stage acts too! Vibe hard to international talents including Malaysian rock legends Wings, American musical duo iDKHOW, and Swedish-Gambian singer-songwriter, Seinabo Sey; along with local artists, Shigga Shay, Altoduo, Ice Cream Sundays and Inch.
