The 2016 Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix will be held from 16 to 18 September 2016 on the Marina Bay Street Circuit. International headline acts will perform concurrently with the Grand Prix.

The Formula 1 Singapore Airlines Singapore Grand Prix motors its way through the canyons of  Marina Bay in downtown Singapore at night.

Lit by thousands of powerful floodlights, the high energy circuit is a mix of high-speed straights and bumpy slow corners.

Drivers are physically and psychologically challenged as they weave their way between the barriers along the waterfront and in the shadows of modern skyscrapers and colonial era buildings.

It is the world's only night race Grand Prix and the only street race in Asia on the Formula One circuit.

It is arguably one of the world's most dramatic Formula 1  circuits.

Live Entertainment

Several events will be held concurrently with the Singapore Grand Prix.

International headline acts will include ...

  • Kyle Minogue from Australia
  • Queen from the UK and Adam Lambert from the US
  • Imagine Dragons from the US
  • Bastille from the UK
  • Halsey from the US
  • KC and The Sunshine Band from the US
  • Pentatonix from the US
  • Dynamo from the UK

Several local bands and numerous other musicians will also perform concurrently with the Grand Prix.

In what has become a tradition, Chefs at Royal Plaza on Scotts have created a life-sized race car using ingredients, waste, or other objects from the hotel's kitchen.

This year's race car is made of Coca-Cola bottle caps.

The race car measures 4.40 metres long, 1.90 metres wide, and 1.30 metres tall.

It took a dedicated team of chefs more than 1,000 hours to complete.

More than 20,000 bottle caps were used. As part of RP’s commitment to its eco-friendly practices, hotel employees started collecting bottle caps in January.

The race car will be on display until 18 September 2016.

Other hotels, restaurants, and shopping malls are offering special promotions tied in with the Singapore Grand Prix.
