Vance Joy rocks out at the 2019 Superloop Adelaide 500.
Get closer to all the action at the 2019 Superloop Adelaide 500 in their brand new entertainment precinct that creates a dynamic space for fans of motorsports and live music alike.
The new precinct sees the concert stage relocated from its previous location at the Christian Brothers College Oval to in front of the Victoria Park Heritage Grandstand, giving both race spectators and concert-goers more convenient access to all that the 2019 Superloop Adelaide 500 has to offer, on and off the track.
From the thrills of trackside to the crush of the mosh pit, you’ll never be too far from world-class performances, be it mechanical or musical. The central hub also boasts a myriad of family-friendly activities as well as premium food and beverage offerings to make sure you’re not running on empty.
The on-track racing line-up for the Superloop Adelaide 500 promises four days of adrenaline-filled action, dominated by the season opener of the Virgin Australia Supercar Championship. Supporting the on-track activity are the ever-popular Dunlop Super2 Series, Porsche Carrera Cup, Touring Car Masters, Aussie Racing Cars, ECB SuperUtes and Audi R8 LMS Cup.
Once the wheels stop turning on the track, swap the smell of burning rubber for the sweet aroma of burning rock & roll with three nights of all-star concerts featuring some Australian favourites and topped by one of the biggest-selling international acts in the world.
On Friday, get a double-dose of Aussie love with local sweethearts Amy Shark and Vance Joy. Since releasing her smash-hit debut single ‘Adore’, Amy has become something of an ARIA magnet, scoring three of the awards in 2018. Amy takes the stage before Vance to play hits from her 2018 ARIA Award-winning Album Of The Year ‘Love Monster’.
Vance Joy also picked up an ARIA Award, winning Best Adult Contemporary Album for ‘Nation Of Two’. Vance says he’s excited to help kick off the daily post-race festivities: “I love playing in Adelaide,” Vance says. “It’s always a great energy from the crowd, so I’m looking forward to coming back and playing such a big event as Superloop Adelaide 500.”
Saturday picks up the pace with a classic Aussie rock one-two-punch from Jet and The Living End. It’s been more than 15 years since Jet released their debut album ‘Get Born’, ruling the airwaves with tracks like ‘Are You Gonna Be My Girl’ and ‘Rollover DJ’.
Meanwhile, The Living End commands a fierce following and will put the (guitar) pedal to the metal on with a performance as part of their national ‘Wunderbar’ album tour.
The headline bands will be supported by a different local SA band each night, courtesy of the Bands On Track programme, a collaboration between Music SA and the Superloop Adelaide 500 that supports up-and-coming local performers.
The chequered flag drops on the Adelaide 500 on Sunday evening with a performance by Californian funk-rockers Red Hot Chili Peppers playing classic hits from across their expansive and beloved catalogue.
The brand-new entertainment precinct at the Superloop Adelaide 500 ensures you can go from fast cars to loud guitars quicker than a V8 hot-lap.
The Superloop Adelaide 500 takes place 28 February to 3 March.
