Some of the biggest global superstars on the planet, including multi award-winning artists: Beyoncé, Black Eyed Peas, No Doubt, ZZ Top, Simple Minds, N*E*R*D and a host of Asian superstars will perform for the first F1 ROCKS™ live at Fort Canning Park, Singapore.

The show will also feature guest appearances from top FORMULA ONE™ drivers and celebrities, in what will certainly be a star-studded weekend in Singapore.
“I am delighted to be launching F1 ROCKS in Singapore and very pleased to have Singapore as our inaugural event. The world’s only F1TM night race just got bigger, faster and louder. Our talent is world class and F1 ROCKS™ will rock Singapore!” said Paul Morrison, CEO & Chief Creative Officer, All the Worlds/ F1 ROCKS.
“Singapore is making history as the launch city of F1 ROCKS™ and this spectacular occasion will add a unique edge to the Singapore GP Season and bolster our reputation as Asia’s top lifestyle destination,” said Jason Ong, Area Director for Middle East and Africa, Singapore Tourism Board, “We have worked with leading travel agents in the Middle East to create special packages for the Singapore FORMULA ONE™ race and we have received keen interest amongst Middle East travelers for this groundbreaking event.”
Jim Kerr, band member of F1 ROCKS headliners Simple Minds, says the band can’t wait to experience the sensational atmosphere in Singapore:
“There aren’t many areas in the music arena that haven’t been tapped into, but when we heard about F1 ROCKS™, we all thought wow! The crowds are going to be sensational and it’s going to be a lot of fun. Formula One™ is a sport that many of the guys like to watch, so being able to be part of this is something to get genuinely excited about.”
F1 ROCKS™ Singapore enjoys perfect brand synergy with the inaugural venue Singapore. Singapore, as a city of firsts, hosted the world’s first FORMULA ONE night race last year and is still the host city of the only FORMULA ONE night race, making it one of the most exciting races in the season. The race is complemented by the 10-day Singapore GP Season, offering lifestyle and entertainment experiences including all-night parties, art exhibitions, great Asian cuisine and retail promotions.
