It’s a stretch but we’re certain no one will tell you that they didn’t have fun at Podium Lounge parties — after all, it’s the party of the year to celebrate the Formula One Grand Prix season. When the stakes get higher and people hanker for even more excitement, the prediction this year is that up to 10,000 guests will be raising their chequered flags — or glasses, rather — this September over three exciting days during the most epic party of the season.
The Podium Lounge has proven the hype of their anniversary parties with a previous list of stellar performances by artists like Taboo (Black Eyed Peas) and Boyzlife’s Brian McFadden and Keith Duffy. Disco balls and brilliant spotlights shone bright in a mash of party-till-you-have-difficulty-finding-your-grabcar vibes, with many celebrities such as celebrity chef Gordon Ramsey and former Manchester United footballer Rio Ferdinand showing up and turning up.
That leaves us wondering, what is to come in the 11th round of this crazy celebration? Well, it’s everything that boys like.
Situated in the Ritz-Carlton, Millennium Singapore, the celebrity line up includes ex-Formula One driver and celebrity Alex Yoong and E! News Asia’s Yvette King from 10pm till late each night to cater to racing enthusiasts. Talk about racing legends, famous hosts and hot artistes — the celebrity quotient is definitely filled.
Headlining the 2019 shows over the 20th, 21st and 22nd respectively are Melanie C (aka Sporty Spice), risqué musical comedy troupe and celebrity party starters The Cuban Brothers, and singer/songwriter Raleigh Ritchie (also known for his other moniker as Grey Worm of Game of Thrones). These give you three options — Ritchie’s smooth and soulful singing, telling Melanie C what you really really want or the good vibes and funk from The Cuban Brothers.
Throughout all three nights, Daniel Jones of hugely successful Australian pop duo Savage Garden will make an appearance together with singer Kathleen De Leon and rising Singaporean star Maya Davidov. Another star slated to make an appearance is a luxurious Rolls-Royce conveniently parked for you to admire and get your hands on.
New York-based Neo-Pop artist Jan Larsen will also be presenting his thoughtful and entertaining contemporary paintings in the Go Go Go showcase which takes the form of an F1 racing pit. It also comes complete with an entertaining JLA pitcrew that invites the audience into a NeoPop-meets-motor-racing work of art.
MTHEMOVEMENT (who counts The Black Eyed Peas, Britney Spears and Snoop Dog as fans) takes centre stage to provide the fashion quotient for the event — designer luxury meets downtown streetwear donned by models walking the Peroni LED Catwalk.
Get down to The Podium Lounge from the 20th to 22nd of September at Ritz-Carlton. Tickets to this all-out celebration start at $188 in advance and $218 at the door while VIP tables start from $1,688. Book your tickets here.
