This year, Diplo has been announced as the trackside performer on the Saturday of the Grand Prix weekend.

Last year, DJ Snake and Craig David took to the stage for an exciting performance. In previous years, the concerts normally started at roughly 9:30 pm and went until about 11:30 pm.

The concerts are held on the Friday and Saturday nights, usually at the big stage in the Fan Zone which is located behind the Main Grandstand.

Fan Zone

Although the race weekend is usually jam packed with events, there is a designated ‘Fan Zone’ at the circuit. Located right behind the Main grandstand, this is the best place for race goers to seek out food, refreshments, merchandise, and lastly, entertainment.

Bahrain has organized numerous activities and entertainment acts for all ages ranging from comedians to circus performers. The Fan Zone is where attendees can expect merchandise stands, food and drink options and lastly, it is where the concert stage is located. In previous years, Bahrain has had driver appearances on the Thursday or Friday of the race weekend. Although nothing has been announced yet, fans can expect the appearances to take place on the main grandstand.

The Pit Lane Walk is another exciting experience that three-day ticket holders have to look forward to. This usually takes place on the Wednesday before the race weekend.

Stay tuned for more details.
