Got a chance to tour the F1 Rocks backstage on Tuesday. Unless you have been living under the rock (pun intended), you would know that F1 rock is a three-day music festival held at Fort Canning Park, Singapore. Megastars like Jacky Cheung, A-Mei, No Doubt, The Black Eyed Peas, Beyonce and many more will be performing. The performance will also be broadcasted in 147 countries.
Let me say this first. They were still busy setting up everything when we are touring the area. So you will see nothing but mess in this sneak peek. Of course by the time you read this, the place will be all set for the party.
The stage is huge. It took the organisers 4 days to build the stage using a 80 ton crane.
Noise warning sign at the Fort Canning Park. Looks like some serious partying going to happen for the 3 days.
A long list of prohibited items. Sad that no food and drinks are allowed. It would be nice to have a picnic before the performance start.
Another stage for partying after the performance.
The VIP area. Still work in progress. There will be several large LG TV around the area so that the VIP won’t miss the action outside.
View of the stage from the side of the VIP seating area. How I wish I have the VIP tickets.
Artist dressing room. All artist are given a room backstage. Still in a mess.
Beyonce’s dressing room. She requested all white furniture. Looks like a very comfortable chair.
The artist waiting area backstage. There is a Johnnie Walker bar. I wonder do they drink before or after the performance. Or both.
OK, I know every isn’t ready yet.
And that’s the area where artist will have their photoshoot before and after the performance. And since we are there, why not take a group photo. :)
