Singapore revs up for the world’s only night-time Grand Prix, where racing and live rock collide in 2009

Billed as one of the most dramatic and atmospheric races on the F1 calendar – and the only one worldwide to be held at night – the 2009 Formula 1TM SingTel Singapore Grand Prix will heat up the Lion City’s streets again on 27 September.

The SGP Season will see a packed schedule of fast cars, amazing action, fantastic fireworks, sizzling nightlife and entertainment roar through the heart of Singapore’s buzzing downtown Marina Bay district and expectations are high with this year’s event expected to surpass the electrifying atmosphere felt during the inaugural event in 2008.

New to the F1 calendar, and one of this year’s most anticipated events, is the F1 Rocks concert (24 – 26 september), featuring globally acclaimed artists including the No Doubt, Black Eyed Peas, Beyonce, ZZ Top, N*E*R*D and Simple Minds. Lovers of live music will be treated to a three day celebration of music, rock and roll, dancing and adrenalin.

September will also see the Lion City alive with culture, with several important festivals taking place including: Hari Raya Puasa (14 August – 27 September) marking the end of the fasting month for Singapore’s Malay community, the Chinese Mid Autumn Festival (19 September – 17 October), and Deepavali (18 September – 25 October) the Hindu festival celebrating the triumph of light over darkness (good over evil) – with each festival seeing entertainment, food and fabulous light displays set the scene for celebration in Singapore’s ethnic precincts.

Other fringe events include Asia on the Edge (18-27 September 2009 at The Arts House), showcasing Asia’s rich history and culture through an exciting line up of free and ticketed events including live performances, enthralling exhibitions and gastronomic celebrations;the Outdoor Photo Exhibition of Singapore’s inaugural 2008 F1 night race by Paul-Henri Cahier; Britto in Singapore (18-27 September at the ION Orchard and Opera Gallery), a visual arts display by Brazilian neo-pop artist and sculptor Romero Britto; and Il Divo performing live at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on 21 September.
