Silverstone has today announced that legendary British DJ, producer and broadcaster Pete Tong will make history by becoming the first ever DJ to play on the grid at Silverstone when he performs at the 2024 British Grand Prix. The unique set will take place prior to the race on Sunday 7th July 2024. He will also perform on the main stage on Saturday as part of a star-studded music line-up for 2024 that also includes Stormzy and Kings of Leon. Tickets are available to buy here.

With an incredible 30+ year career, Pete Tong MBE is an arena-selling artist whose Ibiza Classics has firmly cemented itself as part of the live music calendar. Speaking on his unique inclusion at the 2024 British Grand Prix, Pete said: “It’s incredible to be bringing the Ibiza Classics to Silverstone and such an honour to be playing on the grid before the race starts at the British Grand Prix. I’m a huge fan of Formula One. I’ll be supporting Red Bull and cheering for Max – he’s the trailblazer of the circuit and awesome to watch! I look forward to making history on July 7th.”

Having attracted record crowds of 480,000 people in 2023, the home of British motorsport is set to go bigger and better this year when it hosts an eclectic mix of music heavyweights. The unprecedented four-day festival line-up (Thursday 4th July – Sunday 7th July 2024) will see Silverstone take its new-look music and arts offering to the next level – cementing the British Grand Prix as a summer highlight on both the British sporting and music calendar.

Nashville rockers Kings Of Leon will headline on Thursday before generational icon Stormzy follows on Friday. Fans can expect summer grooves on Saturday when Pete Tong presents Ibiza Classics with Jules Buckley and The Essential Orchestra before Rudimental close the weekend with a stomping live set on Sunday. The Snuts (Thursday), Self Esteem (Thursday), Jordss (Friday), Ghetts (Friday), Arielle Free (Saturday) and Anna De Ferran (Sunday) make up the rest of the star-studded music line-up.
