The Australian Grand Prix Corporation (AGPC) is delighted to announce the return of M-Lane in 2019, combining festival vibes with all that is truly Melbourne – food trucks, live music and street art – creating the ultimate off-track entertainment experience at this year’s Formula 1® Rolex Australian Grand Prix.
From 14-17 March, Melbourne’s food and art scene will make its way to Albert Park where fans can chill-out lakeside at the ‘Water’s Edge’, an all-new upbeat pop-up bar located in M-Lane, featuring live DJ sets throughout the four-day event.
AGPC, General Manager of Motorsport, Entertainment and Industry, Craig Fletcher, said: “M-Lane is a one-stop shop for fans, and we’re thrilled to add to the experience this year with the all-new Water’s Edge pop-up bar, which will be the ultimate place to chill out with friends and family while soaking up all the action.
“Food, music, art and sport are a big part of Melbourne’s identity and M-Lane provides the perfect platform to showcase these passion points and recreate all that is great about our city.”
Packed with Instagramable moments, fans will also find Melbourne’s best selfie spot in the heart of M-Lane. With the Melbourne city skyline and the iconic Albert Park lake as your backdrop, M-Lane is the place to be this March.
Sit back in a deck chair, relax and watch all the motorsport action live on the super screen, while enjoying a bite to eat. There will be a smorgasbord of delicious food from some of Melbourne’s popular food trucks for fans to enjoy including Biggie Smalls, Sliders on Tyres, Agape Organic and more.
Fans will be spoilt for choice as they experience endless off-track entertainment in M-Lane. In between track action, fans can visit the pop-up Barbershop for a trim, or visit the new Jade K Beauty Bar for complimentary make-up touch ups, plus sit back and listen to the stellar line-up of international and home-grown Australian music talent at the Heineken® Village.
The Strange Fruit Circus Show will dazzle fans with electrifying display of daily aerial performances with their signature sway-pole apparatus, while the Wheel of Steel Stunt Show extreme artists will defy gravity and launch themselves into the sky to perform aerial stunts, gymnastics and flips.
Fans are encouraged to look out for the AusGP crew, who will be roving the Albert Park Grand Prix Circuit across the four-days with plenty of giveaways and exclusive Formula 1® Australian Grand Prix experiences, while cranking Fox FM playlists from their boom box.
