The Silverstone track authorities have just dropped a bombshell for all Formula 1 enthusiasts and music lovers alike. British rapper Stormzy is set to make his debut appearance at Silverstone during the British Grand Prix weekend in 2024. The excitement is palpable as fans gear up for a thrilling combination of high-speed racing and a spectacular evening performance.
It’s been a mere three months since we witnessed the drama and adrenaline of the British Grand Prix in 2023 at Silverstone. The race saw Max Verstappen clinching yet another victory, a sight that’s becoming increasingly common, with Lando Norris securing the second position and the legendary Lewis Hamilton taking third place.
However, the Silverstone circuit’s management is determined to make the 2024 Grand Prix even more memorable. Not only have they managed to secure Stormzy for a scintillating performance, but they’ve also opened the doors for fans to purchase tickets well in advance.
For those eager to witness the main event on Sunday, ticket prices range from £279 to £539, offering various viewing options to cater to every fan’s preferences. But if you’re looking to kickstart your weekend early and groove to Stormzy’s beats on Friday, along with catching the FP1 and F2 sessions, tickets start at £119 and go up to £319.
While Stormzy takes center stage on Friday, Saturday promises a musical treat as well. Fans can sing along to the tunes of Pete Tong, Jules Buckley, and The Essential Orchestra as they present the ever-popular Ibiza classics. It’s the perfect way to set the tone for an unforgettable race weekend.
Bringing the curtain down on this fabulous weekend will be the talented band Rudimental. Known for their chart-toppers like ‘These Days’, ‘Waiting All Night’, and ‘Feel The Love,’ they are set to leave the crowd buzzing with energy on Sunday night.
“Our long-term ambition has always been to establish Silverstone as a venue that attracts the biggest and best artists in the world to put on a spectacular show for the British fans. It’s an honour to announce Stormzy, Pete Tong and Rudimental as the first names on our line-up for the 2024 British Grand Prix.
“We knew we had a massive job on our hands following the great success of this year’s music offering, so we are thrilled to be able to take things up another notch – with more huge global acts still to be announced!”
Silverstone’s Commercial Director, Nick Read, shared his excitement about the grand plan on the circuit’s official website. He hinted at more surprises yet to come, with the track authorities still finalizing and withholding the announcement of the artist for Thursday’s opening concert.
In past editions, the British Grand Prix weekend has kicked off in style with renowned artists like DJ Calvin Harris, Jess Glynne, and Cat Burns taking to the main stage. It’s been a memorable start to an action-packed weekend, and there’s no doubt that this year’s lineup is equally promising.
