The weekend’s roaming performers include stilt-walkers, musicians, dancers, magicians, stunt performers and the like; while the stage shows feature some of the world’s favourite children’s stories and the most delightful characters.

There will also be a number of fun carnival rides, highlighted by the gigantic, 35-metre high Ferris Wheel, featuring 27 gondolas from where fantastic bird’s eye views of the circuit and the surrounding Sakhir area.

Meanwhile, headlining the entertainment programme will be a spectacular live performance by multi-platinum-selling artist DJ Snake.

DJ Snake will be taking to the main stage at BIC’s F1 Village vending area on Friday night, and all those with tickets will be able to enjoy the concert at no extra cost.

BIC will be opening its doors from the Thursday of race week on 2 March, with three-day ticket-holders able to enjoy an F1 Pit Walk as well as some of the weekend’s other colourful off-track attractions.

The on-track action will begin on Friday, 3 March, with the main event, the 57-lap Bahrain Grand Prix, taking place under lights on Sunday, 5 March.

All throughout the weekend, there will be non-stop racing from morning to night as a packed timetable will see F1 being supported by the FIA Formula 2 Championship, the FIA Formula 3 Championship and the Porsche Sprint Challenge Middle East.
