Prepare yourself for pop euphoria, because less than a month stands between you and some of Billboard's biggest acts. When Circuit of The Americas (COTA) welcomes the greatest racing drivers in the world for the Formula 1 Pirelli 2018 United States Grand Prix, it also brings Bruno Mars and Britney Spears, pop superstars with live shows as high-octane as the races they'll follow.
Bruno Mars will light up the Grand Prix weekend when he makes a stop at COTA on Saturday, October 20, with his entertainment-packed 24K Magic World show — an effort in support of his November 2018 album of the same name. He'll take the stage after the day's support races and qualifiers, making it a day of racing you won't want to miss.
Britney Spears, meanwhile, will close out the weekend's celebration with a post-race concert on Sunday, October 21, following the Grand Prix itself. The show comes as part of her Britney: Piece of Me world tour, which follows her award-winning and record-breaking headlining Las Vegas residency.
If you're ready to channel your inner pre-teen with "Oops, I Did it Again" or sing "Uptown Funk" along with thousands of other fans, here's what to expect:
All three-day tickets include access to all the musical festivities, including the three-day general admission passes, which are non-transferrable wristbands. If the full weekend is more than you care to commit to, one-day passes include access to the show on the corresponding evening. Tickets are available here.
Single-day and three-day parking passes are available starting at $25. Bicycles can park free onsite, but if four wheels are your forte, then your best bet is to opt for one of Austin's rideshare options or take the shuttle from downtown.
In addition to these two chart-topping headliners, more than 20 Texas acts will take to the various stages throughout the weekend, including Love-Sadkid, Heartless Bastards' Erika Wennerstrom, Jakubi, Mayeux and Broussard, Nakia & the Blues Grifters, and more as part of the American Soundtrack.
So get ready, music fans, because F1 weekend is as much about the entertainment as it is the excitement.
