Fans can enjoy live music and free concerts all weekend long at the Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix presented by Lear on June 2-4, as the event will bring a welcoming street party vibe in its return to downtown Detroit for the first time since the early 1990s.
With acts performing at Hart Plaza, inside the Meijer Fan Zone at the Grand Prix, the entertainment lineup will include some of the most popular performers in hip-hop and electronic music.
On Friday evening, June 2, the first day of Grand Prix weekend will conclude with two electrifying performances on the entertainment stage. Renowned DJ and producer A-Trak is set to take the stage from 6-7:15 p.m. ET, followed by Grammy Award-winning rapper Big Boi of the legendary Atlanta duo OutKast, headlining the stage from 7:30-8:30 p.m.
Following practice, qualifying and the first races of Grand Prix weekend on Saturday, June 3, legendary turntablist and producer Z-Trip will perform on stage beginning at 5:30 p.m. Following Z-Trip, two-time Grammy-nominated DJ, producer and global electronic music superstar Steve Aoki will ignite the Riverfront with his electrifying performance, featuring his signature high-energy beats and jaw-dropping stage production from 7-8:30 p.m.
Music will be featured on the entertainment stage throughout the weekend with a variety of DJs, local bands and national acts performing in the same area where the internationally known “Movement Detroit” electronic music festival will be hosted in Hart Plaza one week earlier. The stage will feature performances from noon-8:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday and from 10 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Sunday, leading into pre-race activities and ceremonies for the Chevrolet INDYCAR Grand Prix NTT INDYCAR SERIES race.
