Williams Racing, one of the most successful Formula 1 teams in history, is kicking off this year’s Formula 1 Aramco US Grand Prix with a spectacular night out featuring some of the biggest names in entertainment. Robin Thicke, Wyclef Jean, and Shaggy will play on Friday, October 21, 2022, as DJ Cassidy brings his critically acclaimed, ground-breaking series, “Pass The Mic,” to the stage.
DJ Cassidy has passed the mic to 220 famous musicians in his internationally acclaimed, viral phenomenon turned popular television series, including Earth Wind & Fire, Nile Rodgers, Run DMC, LL Cool J, Salt ‘N Pepa, Bobby Brown, Boyz II Men, TLC, Nelly, Ice Cube, Missy Elliott, and many more. The legendary deejay is now bringing his game-changing musical format to the stage, especially for Williams Racing. Previously, he had DJed events for Jay Z, Beyonce, Sean “Diddy” Combs, Jennifer Lopez, Naomi Campbell, the Kardashians, Oprah Winfrey, and the Obamas.
“I am so thrilled to kick off the first-ever Williams Racing music event during the 2022 US Grand Prix weekend in Austin with “Pass The Mic Live!” says DJ Cassidy. “I’ll be taking the party people on a non-stop journey of music as fast-paced as the race while passing the mic to three of the most iconic entertainers of our time.”
The Texas-themed party will be held at the storied Austin City Limits at The Moody Theater, a state-of-the-art live music venue for showcasing internationally famous musicians in a cozy environment. The venue, which is right next to the W Austin Hotel & Residences, provides an idyllic setting for the experiential wonderland where guests can mingle with Williams Racing drivers Alex Albon, Nicholas Latifi, and Logan Sargeant, Team Principal Jost Capito, and 2009 Formula 1 World Champion and Williams Racing Brand Ambassador Jenson Button.
