I was reading through the press release for the upcoming
Formula 1 SingTel Singapore Grand Prix
and got so blown away that i couldn't wait to start writing this blogpost!!!
Seriously, when you're done with this post,
TELL ME that you don't want to go.
And i'll tell you that you're missing out on LIFE.
Dubbed as Asia's biggest sporting and entertainment extravaganza,
Singapore GP unveils that they're spending SGD5 Million on their entertainment line-up.
There will be:
- Over 10 hours of thrilling race action
- More than 300 entertainers performing everything from rock to musicals and fire-eaters
- Two Grammy award winners to headline the Padang stage
If you haven't been following @F1NightRace on Twitter
i'll probably need to tell you who's gonna be performing!
In short, there will be:
Deep inside, i'm a (pre)closet Boy George fan.
you come and gooooo
you come and goooooooo
Mr. Lova Lova!
My favourite song from him will forever be Oh Carolina.
Memories of me carefully putting in the CD (CDs were new back then!) and dancing to it in the living room while my parents were at work.
If Oprah calls her the 'Most Talented Girl in the World'
who am i to go against the Word of Oprah.
It makes sense to me why they're naming the event Live Louder Than Life.
There's gonna be SO MUCH MUSIC!
Not including the ENERGY from the F1 races,
the electrifying atmosphere,
and dance parties galore.
I'm not even HALFWAY done with the things there are to do yet...
I'm not even going to write them all down here cos it'd be too much!
Just gonna write down TWO other things i'm looking forward to:
Part of the F1 Village will be illuminated by recreations of 10 planets based on actual NASA imagery!
OK pardon my geekery, but i'm really excited about this!
I wanted to write about this before the Grammy award-winning artists even... :p
Another thing i really want to watch is this French performance called Transe Express.
Pied Piper procession of percussionists,
who are lifted 40 metres off the ground,
complete with trapeze stunts in midair?!
The French are truly crazy.
Like i said, everything i've mentioned so far,
is not even HALF of all the stuff going on at the Singapore Grand Prix.

1-Altitude has sealed its reputation as the world’s highest rooftop bar, playing host to the World Gourmet Summit 2011, Singapore F1, Sports Illustrated magazine, (Other major corporate, F & B events) and picked up a string of awards along the way. They include winner of the Epicurean Star 2011 Award for the Luzerne Best Restaurant concept, and finalist for the Samsung Business Excellence Award for Fine Dining, both presented by the Restaurant Association of Singapore.
As the third Singapore F1 reaches our shores, the award-winning rooftop bar will host Japanese DJ Silva. Thanks to her clear-cut talent and ear for body- and soul shaking tunes, she became one of Japan’s most sought-after club DJs in no time. She also began incorporating scat and live vocals over her house mix during her set. Indeed, this distinct performance style sets her further apart from other DJs around, drawing the attention from overseas promoters and DJs. As of March ’08, she’s already held down numerous gigs at packed nightclubs and special events – not just in Japan but also in Korea, China, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Russia, Ukraine and the USA.
One of Japan’s finest on the decks DJ Licca visits Bump in a monthly affair of sweet nothings, all night delights, and of course a cheeky selection of hiphop and bass-heavy beats. Join us in this all-Nippon monthly and get involved with the fair and exquisite beauty by sweating it out in the barrage of monster floor fillers.

Ku De Ta presents Scarlett Etienne
Scarlett Etienne is one of a rare breed - an inimitable talent and an artist that is impossible to pin down. Everything Etienne does is imbued with her superlative love for music, accomplished musicianship and an uncanny understanding of how to move a dance floor.
She can be seen gracing the decks everywhere from the infamous bastion of techno Watergate in Berlin to Club Midi in Romania and Likuid Club in Hong Kong, where she is a resident. Her “total obsession with synthesisers” ultimately drives her style. Her music is a total party music, always punchy, dramatic and electronically influenced.
Club DJ, producer, singer and songwriter, this multi-talented lady hits Singapore this September with a party over the F1 weekend at the KU DÉ TA Club Lounge. Let down your hair, put on your party shoes, bottle yourself with alcohol, and let her reveal her secrets as you stamp her imaginative style on the dancefloor....
