Get your party engines started

18 April 2023, Singapore – Get your party engines started, as race promoter Singapore GP Pte Ltd unveils the first wave of entertainment acts set to light up the Formula 1 Singapore Airlines Singapore Grand Prix 2023 from 15 to 17 September 2023. The high-octane track action at the night race will be complemented by an 88rising line-up, Post Malone, and Robbie Williams. More acts will be unveiled in the coming weeks to complete the full entertainment programme.


Making their collective Singapore debut at the night race is the game-changing Asian-American record label 88rising, presenting a line-up of artistes that includes Jackson Wang, Rich Brian, NIKI, and Warren Hue. 88rising is one of the biggest musical platforms around, propelling Asian acts onto the global stage and creating iconic pop-culture crossovers. 88rising’s own Head in the Clouds Music Festival has become a global sensation – with stops in Los Angeles, Coachella Main Stage, Jakarta, and Manila. 88rising is set to perform throughout the day at the Zone 4 Padang Stage on 15 September with more acts from the collective set to be added to the line-up.

Jackson Wang began releasing solo music in 2017, with hit singles Come Alive, Blow, 100 ways, and LMLY. The Chinese singer’s second album Magic Man reached number 15 on the US Billboard 200. In 2022, he made history at Coachella as the first-ever Chinese solo artiste to perform on the main stage and also embarked on the MAGIC MAN WORLD TOUR including stops in London, Paris, Thailand, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, and will continue to South and North America. In 2023, he became the only Chinese solo artiste to perform at Coachella for the second time.

Rich Brian made history in 2018 by topping the iTunes Hip-Hop charts with his debut album AMEN - a first for an Asian musician. The Indonesian rapper has since released two studio albums and two EPs, and featured in numerous collaborations, collaborating with the likes of 21 Savage, Offset, and Playboi Carti. Brian has taken his music across the globe, selling out shows and playing festivals around the world. Brian is the world’s preeminent Asian rapper.

Indie-folk and pop singer-songwriter NIKI boasts a repertoire of hit songs including lowkey, Every Summertime and High School in Jakarta. Since breaking through with her 2018 EP, Zephyr, the Indonesian songstress has accumulated over 1.8 billion streams to date and sold out her first ever headline tour in 2022.

Listed in Forbes Asia Under 30 list and being added to NME’s list of 100 essential new artistes in 2022 and 25 artistes to watch for 2022, rapper-singer Warren Hue is a rising star in the hip-hop music scene. Pushing the boundaries of hip-hop and R&B, the Indonesian artiste released his studio debut BOY OF THE YEAR and embarked on his first North America tour in 2022.

Post Malone

Catch American global phenomenon Post Malone’s Singapore debut at the Zone 4 Padang Stage after Qualifying on Saturday, 16 September. A 5x diamond-certified GRAMMY® Award-nominated phenomenon, Dallas, TX artist Post Malone regularly rewrites history and blurs boundaries. Emerging in 2015 with a genre-less brew that inspired a movement, he delivered the diamond-selling Congratulations [feat. Quavo], achieved back-to-back #1 debuts on the Billboard Top 200, received countless multi-Platinum and Diamond certifications around the world, and smashed one record after another with his Hot 100-topping hits. In 2022, he pushed boundaries again with his fourth full-length offering, Twelve Carat Toothache, which marked his fourth consecutive Top 5 bow on the Billboard Top 200. He also scored “the highest-certified single in RIAA history” with the 17x-platinum Sunflower (Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse) [feat. Swae Lee], netting the biggest single of his generation. Earlier this year he garnered a GRAMMY® Award nod in the category of “Best Pop Duo/Group Performance” for I Like You (A Happier Song) [with Doja Cat], marking his tenth career nomination in six years. As of 2023, his catalogue comprises the GRAMMY® Award-nominated rockstar [feat. 21 Savage] (Diamond), Sunflower (Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse) [feat. Swae Lee] (Diamond), I Fall Apart (5x-platinum), Psycho [feat. Ty Dolla $ign] (5x-platinum), White Iverson (5x-platinum), Better Now (4x-platinum), and more.


Robbie Williams

British pop sensation Robbie Williams returns to the Marina Bay Street Circuit after putting on a truly memorable performance to a crowd of 50,000 fans at the Padang, despite the heavy downpour in 2014. The Rock DJ will dish out his hits at the Zone 4 Padang Stage after the Formula 1 race on Sunday, 17 September. Robbie is one of the most decorated music artistes in the world with six of the Top 100 best-selling albums in British history, a huge 80 million album sales worldwide, 14 Number 1 singles (with Take That and as a solo artiste) and a record 18 BRIT Awards – more than any other artiste in music history. Robbie secured his 14th UK Number 1 album with XXV, which topped the chart in its first week of release. With this amazing achievement, the music icon has now broken the record for the solo artiste with the most UK Number 1 albums - only The Beatles now have more UK Number 1 albums than Robbie with 15. Robbie has also raised over £75 million to date for charity through co-founding Soccer Aid for UNICEF in 2006. His hits include Angels, Millennium, Candy, Feel, and She’s the One.
