Martin Solveig leads exciting music line-up for 2023 24 Hours of Spa
A quartet of exciting music acts will keep partygoers dancing through the night at this year's CrowdStrike 24 Hours of Spa concert.
Staged on-site during the twice-around-the-clock race, the concert gets underway on the evening of Saturday 1 July and runs into the small hours of Sunday morning. As ever the line-up features established names from the Belgian scene, as well as an internationally renowned headline act.
The musical aspect forms part of an extensive line-up of entertainment at this year's 75th edition. The paddock will be alive with activity on Thursday and Friday evening, while pit walks will give fans a unique look behind the scenes. Attendees can also enjoy the CrowdStrike 24 Hours of Spa Fan Zone at the bottom of Raidillon, which features the Monster activation area, merchandise, food and drink stands and activities for kids.
First up on the concert stage is Jérôme Denis – better known by his stage name, LouLou Players – who has been a fixture of Belgian nightlife for more than a decade. Originally from Namur, he brings a style that is fresh, deep and deliciously groovy.
Melding the genres of nudisco, indie dance and deep house, LouLou Players is frequently joined by friend and collaborator Kolombo (Olivier Grégoire). He will step out at 20:00, getting this year's CrowdStrike 24 Hours of Spa party started in style.
The next act is among the most influential DJs to emerge from the Belgian house scene: Dave Lambert. In a career that spans more than 20 years, Lambert has built a reputation for mixing deep and tech house sounds, though he is known to bring more powerful EDM and electro beats when performing bigger stages.
Currently house DJ at the Versuz nightclub, Lambert has made multiple appearances at Belgium’s legendary Tomorrowland festival and taken his act to the international arena, with his name appearing on line-ups in France, Spain and Germany. He will be back on home soil at the CrowdStrike 24 Hours of Spa, beginning his performance at 22:00.
This year's headline act is the global multi-platinum selling artist Martin Solveig, whose success during a 20-year career has spanned the roles of DJ, producer and songwriter. This will be the second occasion on which Solveig has performed at the CrowdStrike 24 Hours of Spa concert, having previously headlined in 2015.
After honing his craft as a resident DJ at a number of revered Parisian clubs, Solveig released his debut album ‘Sur La Terre’ in 2002 and went global with the smash-hit single ‘Hello’ in 2010. This infectious track peaked at #1 in four countries and caught the attention of Madonna, who recruited Solveig as a co-producer. He will be on-stage at 23:00, taking the event past midnight and into Sunday.
Finally, at 00:30, Alex Germys will perform the closing set of the night. Hailing from Brussels, his fresh sound blends styles and genres and has already earned plenty of success in his homeland. Indeed, Germys has released several hit singles, including 'Strangers' (feat. Loïc Nottet and Laura Tesoro) which peaked at #4 in the Belgian charts.
He will play a 90-minute set, bringing this year's concert to a close. When the music falls silent at 02:00, the sound of GT3 cars will remain as the CrowdStrike 24 Hours of Spa edges towards half distance. As ever, entrance to the concert is included in the price of a general admission ticket for the full weekend.
The headline race of Fanatec GT World Challenge Europe Powered by AWS and Intercontinental GT Challenge Powered by Pirelli, the CrowdStrike 24 Hours of Spa is the global pinnacle in long-distance GT racing. Scheduled for 29 June – 2 July, the 2023 edition will see a 72-car field made up entirely of GT3 machinery tackle a full day and night of competition at Spa-Francorchamps. Tickets are on sale now for what promises to be another memorable edition of the Belgian endurance classic.
