An impressive crowd of 45,000 fans attended the inaugural Launch Party, held at Silverstone’s newly-expanded music arena. The staging was masterfully executed by Library Productions, the industry pioneers who manage the iconic Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury.

Reflecting on the incredible evening, Jamie Scott expressed his enthusiasm, saying, “What a way to officially kick off the weekend here at Silverstone. We had three incredible British acts who simply blew the roof off the stage. Our goal was to enhance the feel-good festival atmosphere, and last night took it to another level. I can’t wait to continue the festivities with upcoming performances by Tom Grennan, Jax Jones, and the Black Eyed Peas throughout the weekend. And next year, we plan to make Silverstone an even grander summer highlight on both the British sports and music calendars!”

This year’s Formula 1 Aramco British Grand Prix has introduced an exciting new music program, offering four spectacular evenings of live music and entertainment at no additional cost to existing ticket holders.
