The music festival will be held at the B Hillstand of the Sepang International Circuit (SIC), facing Turns 13 and 14 of the track. The APM, the region’s most-talked about Malay music awards show will celebrate its 16th edition at the MES Theatre at Mediacorp, Singapore, on Oct 14.
Six APM nominees and past winners will headline the F1NALE Concert, from big names like Datuk Rossa and Anji of Indonesia to rising stars and APM nominees such as Aisyah Aziz and Harris Baba (Singapore), Ayda Jebat and Hael Husaini (Malaysia).
“We are working closely with Mediacorp to present good entertainment for fans of the region by showcasing top singers from South-East Asia. The concert will be a prelude to the awards night and as the final show at Sepang for the 2017 Formula 1 Petronas Malaysia Grand Prix. We are excited as this is the first time that SIC will be collaborating with a known music award from the region and we are certain it will make for an exciting entertainment for the fans,” said SIC chief executive officer Datuk Razlan Razali.
“We will be hosting the 19th and final edition of the F1 Malaysia Grand Prix at Sepang this weekend. Although it will be an event with a lingering sadness to it, I think we should still go out on a high for the fans to celebrate and experience F1 in Malaysia.”
Zakiah Halim, head of Mediacorp Malay community said: “Mediacorp is thrilled to be part of the F1NALE Concert – APM 2017 Prelude – that features award-winning and renowned artistes from the region. We hope this exclusive showcase will give the audience an experience of what is to come at the Anugerah Planet Muzik 2017 awards show and add excitement to the finale of F1 Malaysia Grand Prix race.”
Besides the six APM nominees, the F1NALE Concert will also feature popular local acts like Upin & Ipin and Shuib & Rahim (Shiro) as well as meet-and-greet sessions with Aisyah Aziz and Hael Husaini at the Fan Zone Stage in the mall area.
