1. Amber Lounge
There’s never a dull moment at the Amber Lounge, and the 11th edition will be no different. The only party to host a fashion show featuring F1 drivers, the festivities are off -the-charts thanks to a heady mix of club dancers, DJ sets, Champagne and surprise A-list headliners such as previous performers Kelis and Estelle. This is also where you can rub shoulders with the drivers, so dress to the nines and keep your eyes peeled.
Join the fun at Singapore’s most iconic club with Checkpoint, a three-day party inspired by 8-bit video games like Space Invaders and Donkey Kong. Helming the decks will be Zouk residents LeNerd and Ghetto on Friday, Dutch DJ-producer luminary R3HAB on Saturday, followed by a special performance by UK R&B crooner Jay Sean at Capital on Sunday.
It’s an open secret that some F1 teams stay at The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore, making The Podium Lounge a key spot to catch a glimpse of the drivers who swing by post-race to hang out. Aside from the celebrity-spotting, this year’s entertainment line-up includes Joel Madden of Good Charlotte, Taboo from the Black Eyed Peas (pictured) and the Boyzlife duo, comprising Keith Duff y (Boyzone) and Brian McFadden (Westlife).
