There will be quite a few Korean-related acts playing at this year’s F1 Singapore Grand Prix.
BIBI, born Kim Hyung-seo, is a South Korean singer-actress whose music style is more out-of-the-box. Her songs are also characterised by her freewheeling attitude.
She has been quite a regular at the annual music festival organised by 88Rising, Head in the Clouds. And she was a part of the show in several different countries – including Jarkata and Los Angeles.
This year, the F1 Singapore Grand Prix will also spotlight other 88Rising artists as well. They include Rich Brian, NIKI and Warren Hue, as well as Jackson Wang.
Last year’s Grand Prix in Singapore featured Marshmello, Green Day and Westlife. Notably, Jay Chou, Dua Lipa, Ariana Grande and Calvin Harris played at previous editions of the festival before.
Additionally, South Korean-based Japanese girl group XG will also be staging a performance at this year’s F1.
Short for Xtraordinary Girls, The seven-piece band made their debut last March with their digital single Tippy Toes (2022).
Earlier this year, the girls dropped their English-language single Shooting Star (2023), which gained them quite a fair bit of traction.
BIBI and XG will be performing in Zone 4, alongside Jackson Wang. They will play at the Padang Stage on the first day of the festivities, on 15 Sep (Fri).

It’s been quite a while since Korean acts graced the F1 Singapore Grand Prix. The last K-pop act to perform for the F1 Grand Prix was BIGBANG back in 2013.
For fans of Korean music, this makes the entertainment segment of the upcoming F1 Singapore Grand Prix an exciting and fun watch, since BIBI and XG will perform at the festival with Jackson Wang.
