The Kooks said: “We’re looking forward to getting down to Silverstone to play on the Saturday night of the Monster Energy British Grand Prix MotoGP! There’s nothing better than an outdoor gig in the middle of summer on a Saturday night, and getting to celebrate that with British fans will be amazing. Bring on 2024!”
Glam rock royalty The Darkness dominated the early noughties music scene, claiming three Brit Awards and quadruple platinum certification for their globally-loved album ‘Permission To Land’, spawning their iconic hit single ‘I Believe In A Thing Called Love’. Known for their no-holds-barred live offering, it’s only fitting the British rockers close the adrenaline-fueled weekend on Sunday night.
A playground for bike fanatics, the action-packed weekend features some of the fastest two-wheel racing on the calendar with world class competition, jaw-dropping stunt shows, live music and more. The only chance for fans to see their MotoGP heroes race on British soil, The Monster Energy British Grand Prix MotoGP™ will feature a Saturday Sprint race in addition to the main race on Sunday, along with support racing by Moto2 and Moto3.
