Singapore to host first ever F1 ROCKS event

Singapore has been announced as the first Grand Prix venue to launch the inaugural F1 ROCKS event.

F1 ROCKS will result in a number of international music and televisual extravaganzas being staged over the course of a Grand Prix weekend.

The line-up for the first event, held between the 24th and 26th of August, will include such acts as Beyonce, Simple Minds, Black Eyed Peas and ZZ Top.

The F1 ROCKS concept was first devised earlier this year, following a deal between Formula One Management and music-giant Universal.
