Bahrain International Circuit (BIC) announced yesterday that 13-time Grammy nominated DJ and producer Diplo as the post-race, Saturday night concert at the Formula 1 Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix 2024.

Diplo is the first major global artist revealed who will be performing live as part of the race weekend’s off-track entertainment, which will be a part of the spectacular celebrations marking the Kingdom of Bahrain’s 20th anniversary in F1.

All those with tickets will be able to enjoy the live Diplo performance at no extra charge. Born in Mississippi and raised in Florida, Diplo has toured the world over and collaborated with the world’s biggest stars including Beyoncé, The Weeknd, Madonna, Bad Bunny and countless others.

He and his era-defining labels Mad Decent and Higher Ground continue to champion genres and artists from around the world, and further ventures include a publishing company and various book, film and TV projects.

The 13 - time Grammy nominee is also a member of the iconic Major Lazer, one third of a supergroup with Sia and Labrinth whose debut album has been streamed over 3 billion times — and half of Silk City with Mark Ronson — whose Platinum-certified, Grammy-winning “Electricity” with Dua Lipa topped charts worldwide.

Second album

His latest releases include last year’s Diplo Present Thomas Wesley: Chapter 2 — Swamp Savant, his second album as country persona Thomas Wesley, 2022’s Diplo, his first full length album of electronic music in 18 years, and several Higher Ground singles.

The grand prix is set to take place 29 February to 2 March at “The Home of Motorsport in the Middle East”, with Bahrain’s 57-lap night race being held on a Saturday night for the first time. It will mark the opening round of the 2024 FIA F1 World Championship, shining the international sporting spotlight on BIC and “20 Years of a Modern Classic”.
