NEWS! Adelaide 500 breaks with tradition for post-race concerts

The concert precinct at the 2019 Superloop Adelaide 500 will be located in Victoria Park, adjacent to the heritage-listed grandstand (pictured above), moving away from the previous location at the Christian Brothers College Oval.

The Christian Brothers College Oval, located within the circuit, was home for the post-race concerts at the Adelaide Grand Prix and into the Adelaide 500 era.

The switch is in keeping with the increased activity within Victoria Park for the Adelaide 500 compared to the Adelaide Grand Prix, particularly following the departure of the South Australian Jockey Club and horse-racing activity in the precinct in 2008.

According to Adelaide 500 organisers: “The concert precinct is moving right into the middle of the action and closer to the track. That means less distance for you to walk after the on-track action has wrapped up, so you can get to the concert sooner and get your spot! Best of all, those fans that like to secure their spot early in the day for the concerts won’t miss out on the racing, with big screens to catch all the on-track action.

Our team has been through a thorough planning process to ensure that the new concert precinct capacity is the same as the previous concert locations. The new concert precinct will have a similar layout to the previous location, with a large standing area in front of the stage, but also plenty of room further back to sit and relax! The perimeter of the concert precinct will include shaded areas to sit and soak up the music, as well as food and beverage outlets so you’re not far away from refreshments!

The iconic Victoria Park heritage grandstand forms part of our new concert precinct, which will be accessible for the concerts each night. Fans can head into the heritage grandstand to enjoy a shaded seating area near the concert stage. It’s first come, first served, and there is a restricted number of seating in this area. The area is not separately ticketed and may reach capacity.

There will be more areas to explore around the concert precinct that we can’t wait to announce soon. It’ll be great for those who are looking to relax after a day of racing action, but still want to hear the concerts.”

American rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers headline the 2019 Superloop Adelaide 500 post-race concerts on the Sunday night.

The 2019 Superloop Adelaide, which will also feature four Adelaide Grand Prix-era Formula 1 race cars, takes place from February 28 to March 3.
