Stormzy To Play At The 2024 British Grand Prix
Stormzy will perform at the next Formula One British Grand Prix on Friday 5 July 2024. The rapper will take to the stage at Silverstone as part of an “unprecedented four-day festival line-up” at the legendary motor racing circuit. Tickets are available here.
On Saturday 5 July, DJ Pete Tong is due to present his Ibiza Classics set alongside Jules Buckley and The Essential Orchestra before Rudimental closes the weekend on Sunday 6 July. The headline and support acts for Thursday night’s Opening Concert will be announced soon.
According to press release, the festival “will see 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”.
Nick Read, Silverstone’s Commercial Director, said: “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.”
Read continued: “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!”
In a recent interview with Dazed, Stormy spoke about following up his hugely successful 2022 album, This Is What I Mean. “All I know is that the next chapter for me includes music, but other than that?” he says, “I don’t know. It’s the most beautiful ‘I don’t know’… There’s no confusion in where I should be and who I should be. It’s like ‘God, I’m ready to do the work here on Earth, you just guide it.’”
