Formula 1 returns to Silverstone for the 2024 British Grand Prix on July 4-7. With tickets now on sale, race organisers have been early in announcing the concert offering over the 2024 British Grand Prix weekend. Stormzy, Pete Tong and Rudimental are all confirmed to headline the event in just over nine months time.

The nightly concerts at Silverstone have become a major selling point of the British Grand Prix in recent years. In 2023, Silverstone expanded its concert offering with a brand new expanded stage area with capacity for up to 45,000 fans. Headline acts in previous years have included Tom Grennan, Black Eyed Peas, Craig David, Calvin Harris and Bastille.

Read on to see who’ll be performing each night and how to secure access to the 2024 British Grand Prix!

Thursday Opening Concert

After a successful debut in 2023, the 2024 British Grand Prix weekend will once again open with a big name concert on Thursday night. Last year, the opening party was headlined by Calvin Harris, with special guests Cat Burns and Jess Glynne.

While access to the track on a Thursday used to be free for 3-day ticket holders, it now costs an additional £100 (in most ticket categories) for a 4-day ticket which grants access to the Thursday concert. A late entry ticket for Thursday, which includes admission only to the evening’s activities, is available from the Silverstone website for £65.

In November 2023, Silverstone announced American rock band Kings Of Leon will headline the Thursday night opening party at the 2024 British Grand Prix. The Grammy award-winning band, who are best known for hits like Use Somebody, Sex On Fire and Radioactive, recently headlined the 2023 Singapore Grand Prix.

British musician Self Esteem and Scottish rock band The Snuts will also be performing on Thursday at the 2024 British Grand Prix.

Stormzy to Headline Friday Night

Grime icon Stormzy will be performing on the main stage at the 2024 British Grand Prix on Friday July 5. The multiple BRIT award winning rapper, who has topped the UK album charts with all three of his albums, will be performing well-known hits like Blinded by Your Grace, Vossi Bop and Crown.

Stormzy – who namechecks Martin Brundle in new track Angel In The Marble – will make his Silverstone debut in 2024 but has played at a Formula 1 weekend before. A regular on Brundle’s famous grid walks, Stormzy previously performed at the 2021 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Pete Tong Performing After Qualifying

World-renowned DJ Pete Tong will be bringing his hugely popular Ibiza Classics live show to Silverstone on Saturday July 6, performing in the evening after qualifying for the 2024 British Grand Prix.

Taking to the stage alongside The Essential Orchestra, conducted by Jules Buckley, Pete Tong will be playing his orchestral re-imaginings of classic tracks, celebrating the legacy of dance and house music.

Rudimental to Close Out 2024 British Grand Prix Weekend

After the 2024 British Grand Prix on Sunday July 7, British drum and bass band Rudimental will close out the weekend performing their biggest hits on the main stage.

It’s always worth sticking around after the chequered flag at Silverstone. You’ll avoid some of the post race traffic jams, have the opportunity to see some of the Formula 1 drivers on the stage and soak up the after race atmosphere.

As the sun sets on another memorable British Grand Prix weekend, Rudimental will be playing a selection of their chart-topping hits. Having collaborated with some of the biggest names in British music – such as Ed Sheeran and Rita Ora – fans can expect to hear the likes of Feel The Love, Waiting All Night and These Days on stage at Silverstone in July.

2024 British Grand Prix Tickets On Sale Now

All ticket categories for the 2024 British Grand Prix weekend are now on sale. Some categories, such as 3-day seats in the popular Hamilton Straight, Club Corner and Copse grandstands, have already fully sold out. Silverstone is not co-operating with third party sellers for grandstand and general admission tickets this year, meaning that the official Silverstone website is the only place to buy genuine 2024 British Grand Prix tickets.

Silverstone has used a dynamic pricing model once again for the 2024 race, which has seen ticket prices increase significantly from their starting points. The heftiest increases were seen in the Club Corner, Hamilton Straight and Village grandstands, where prices increased by up to £200 by 10am on September 25 since being announced earlier in the month.

General Admission tickets, which went on sale on September 25, were also subject to dynamic pricing. Starting at £339, 4-day tickets already increased by £20 to £359 before being available to the general public. A further £20 increase was put on the tickets within an hour of being available to the general public, while ticket prices were up to £399 within 90 minutes of being on sale. 3-day general admission increased from a starting point of £239 to £329 before selling out within four hours of going on sale.

While grandstand and general admission tickets were not immediately available through third party sellers, we now have a range of grandstand tickets and hospitality options available via our trusted partners Grand Prix Tickets (GPT) in our 2024 British Grand Prix ticket shop.

There are also a range of all-inclusive ticket package options available for the Silverstone weekend via F1 Experiences, Formula 1’s official ticket package partner.
