The high-octane event hosts the Dayinsure FIA World Rallycross of Great Britain, presented by Monster Energy, and offers 35,000 festival-goers an energy-filled May bank holiday weekend.

Sean Paul’s hits include Temperature, Get Busy and more recently, Body, No Lie and Mad Love, will be performing to festival goers on the Saturday with a whole host of other guest appearances still to be announced.

As well as the fast-paced action and A-List entertainment, there will be interactive activities from virtual eSports & RC racing, on track demos, drifting and tonnes more packed into the two days.

There will be the opportunity to get behind the wheel and test-drive cars around Silverstone’s legendary racetrack.
