Generational icon Stormzy headlined one of the biggest weekends in the British music and sporting calendar tonight with a show-stopping performance at Silverstone ahead of the 2024 British Grand Prix.

Silverstone has once again pulled together an unprecedented music line up for the weekend. London-based DJ and radio host Jordss got the party started, proving why she is aptly named the ‘queen of rnb edits’.

The audience were then treated to an iconic performance by Grime veteran Ghetts, whose passion and energy throughout was matched by the adoring crowd.

Stormzy closed the show with an unforgettable performance, playing a catalogue of hits across his three number 1 albums such as Vossi Bop, Shut Up and Crown to close out night two in style.

Thursday’s opening concert was headlined by Nashville rockers Kings Of Leon, with support from Self Esteem and The Snuts. Fans can expect summer grooves tomorrow when Pete Tong presents Ibiza Classics with Jules Buckley and The Essential Orchestra before Rudimental close the weekend with a stomping live set on Sunday. Arielle Free (Saturday) and Anna De Ferran (Sunday) make up the rest of the star-studded music line-up.

Having attracted record crowds of 480,000 people in 2023, the home of British motorsport is bigger and better this year as it hosts an eclectic mix of music heavyweights. The unprecedented four-day festival line-up sees Silverstone take its new-look music and arts offering to the next level – cementing the British Grand Prix as a summer highlight on both the British sporting and music calendar.

Also new this year is a reconfigured music arena layout with an increased capacity of 60,000, enhanced viewing and a bigger stage. A comedy stage will be held in Village Enclosure on Friday and Saturday night with Russell Kane, Troy Hawke, and Al Murray confirmed to perform. A 10,000 capacity Big Top stage will also feature high energy, fun-filled, immersive family entertainment and there is a new fan zone layout to incorporate a 2,000 capacity sports bar in partnership with Heineken, which is set to show England and selective Euros matches.

Silverstone’s Commercial Director Nick Read said: “Our long-term ambition has always been to attract the biggest and best artists in the world to Silverstone to put on a spectacular show for the British fans. With Kings of Leon, Stormzy, Pete Tong and Rudimental on this year’s line-up, it’s fair to say the 2024 British Grand Prix is going to be bigger and better than ever before! We knew we had a massive job on our hands following the great success of last year’s music offering, so we are thrilled to be able to take things up another notch.”
