The Baku City Circuit is set to mark its Formula 1 debut race by hosting a spectacular three-day concert with Chris Brown, Enrique Iglesias and Pharrell Williams headlining each night.
To celebrate F1's arrival in Azerbaijan's capital city race organisers have arranged a specially-constructed stage at the street circuit which will host three of music's biggest names to perform after the action on track each night.
Kicking things off will be Chris Brown after Friday's free practice sessions to set the tone for the rest of the weekend of entertainment and sport. The American singer, songwriter and dancer will be performing some of his biggest tunes, including the likes of 'Yeah3x', 'Look At Me Now' and 'Beautiful People”.
Saturday night sees 'The King of Latin Pop' Enrique Iglesias with a thrilling and phenomenal concert which have made him one of the most popular live performers in the world and has sold over 137 million records globally.
Sending the 2016 Formula 1 Grand Prix of Europe into an almighty crescendo is Pharrell Williams who will take to the stage Sunday night after the frantic race action has ended. The multi-talented American performer, songwriter and producer behind some of the biggest hits, including 'Get Lucky', 'Happy' and 'Frontin'', will deliver a wonderful encore to Baku's inaugural Formula 1 race weekend, just hours after the 2016 F1 Grand Prix of Europe.
“For years now, music and Formula 1 have managed to fit together seamlessly with some of the biggest artists in music history performing at various Grand Prixs around the globe,” Arif Rahimov, Baku City Circuit's executive director, said. “This announcement continues this fruitful relationship and will help establish this F1 race weekend in Baku, Azerbaijan as the new home of the greatest entertainment and action on and off-track for all motorsport and music fans.
“All we can say to people thinking of joining us is this: the 2016 Formula 1 Grand Prix of Europe will be unmissable. We look forward to seeing and partying in Baku this June 17th-19th.”
The concert extravaganza will be free to all three-day ticket holders which will also enable holders to go on exclusive pit lane walks, autograph sessions with drivers and enjoy all the sights and sounds of the thriving Baku city life.
