They say good things come to those who wait, so do better things come to those who wait even longer? The organisers behind the F1 Night Race Singapore Grand Prix seem to think so, teasing us with a stunning lineup of artists hitting our shores this September!
Taking place over the weekend of 16 – 18 September 2016, the 2016 Formula 1 Singapore Airlines Singapore Grand Prix will see A-list performers take the stage in front of more than 260,000 spectators over three days. After an unusual delay in announcing the lineup, the official Singapore GP tweeted the following video earlier this afternoon (6 June):

Adam Lambert will front the legendary rock band Queen, while Australian pop diva Kylie Minogue will hold her own in her much-anticipated return to Singapore.
Grammy Award-winning a cappella group Pentatonix are back for the fourth time, while “Pompeii” hitmakers Bastille return after a lauded show in January 2015.
For more matured fans, American musicians KC and The Sunshine Band will also be playing hits from their 40-year-long career.
Before the races, KC and the Sunshine Band will perform at the Village Stage on Sep 16 (Fri), while Pentatonix will perform on the same stage on Sep 17 (Sat). Bastille will perform before the races on Sep 17 at the Padang Stage.
After the races, Kylie Minogue will headline the Padang Stage on Sep 16 while Queen and Adam Lambert will perform on Sep 17. The Padang headliner for Sep 18 (Sun) has not been announced yet.
The Padang stage will also be shifted within the field, to be situated right smack between both Padang grandstand exits so that the stage takes up the length of the Padang instead of the width.
This ensures more attendees can stand closer to the stage, while screens will be provided on the left and right of the stage for greater visibility.

Tickets for the Padang Stage are from S$78 (Friday Zone 4 Walkabout Ticket) to S$268 (3-day Zone 4 Walkabout Ticket).
A limited number of Friday Zone 4 Walkabout tickets will also be sold at a promotional price of S$38 for Singaporeans and Singapore residents, subject to availability.
These tickets can only be purchased over-the-counter at SISTIC outlets, so best to call up your nearest SISTIC outlet to check for availability.
More acts will be announced soon, as these big names only constitute “Round 1” of the full Singapore GP lineup. Who do you think we’ll be welcoming this year with our warmth and humidity? Tweet us your dream performers!
