Formula 1 is back in the US.
Red Bull driver Max Verstappen may have clinched his second world title at the Japanese Grand Prix on Saturday, but the real celebration is happening in Texas later this month.
The party kicks off when the world’s most glamorous sport arrives in Austin for the US Grand Prix at the Circuit of the Americas on Sunday, Oct. 23.
However, there’s just as much action happening off the track, with the likes of Post Malone, Renée Zellweger, Ed Sheeran and more A-listers descending upon the city for a slew of star-studded fêtes.
Here’s everything you need to know about what’s happening across the Grand Prix weekend.
Ed Sheeran and Green Day take the main stage
Rock legends Green Day will kick off the race weekend on Friday, Oct. 21 with a performance on COTA’s Super Stage Festival Lawn following the first day of practice.
Sheeran, 31, will then take the main stage to perform his biggest hits the following night.
Williams LIVE Music Event
DJ Cassidy is bringing his Pass the Mic series to the first ever Williams LIVE Music Event on Oct. 21, with performances by Robin Thicke, Shaggy and Wyclef Jean.
We hear the guest list will include Zellweger, Scott Eastwood and Chloë Grace Moretz, along with F1 drivers Alex Albon and Nicholas Latifi.
Zedd and The Kid LAROI bring the party
The second annual Circuit Series Afterparty is bigger and better this year, with organizers revealing the celebrations will stretch over two nights.
“Clarity” chart topper Zedd and “Without You” hitmaker The Kid LAROI will team up at the Sports Illustrated x Bootsy Bellows bash on Oct. 21, expected to attract the Who’s Who of the Formula 1 world.
The Chainsmokers and Marshmello headline Austin Race Nights

Organizers, however, have assured fans that the event is still happening.
Shaq aka DJ Diesel hits the decks
NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal will hit the decks under his moniker, DJ Diesel, immediately after the race.
