He’s got Jay Z and Kanye West on speed-dial, he’s shifted over half a million singles, and he’s just been announced as the headline DJ at F1 Rocks The Afterparty. Melbourne, are you ready for Mr Hudson…
That’s right, the British born hip hop and R&B superstar will be taking to the decks at the most prestigious post race party of this year’s Australian Grand Prix, which is to be held at EVE on Melbourne’s salubrious south-bank on Sunday 18th March, following two nights of F1 Rocks concerts headlined by Lenny Kravitz.
In addition to a string of collaborations with the likes of Kanye, KiD CuDi and Big Sean – as well as providing the chorus vocal for Jay Z’s summer anthem, ‘Forever Young’ – Mr Hudson is also a renowned solo artist in his own right, with two hit albums under his belt, and has written and produced for amongst others Pixie Lott, Wretch 32 and Eliza Doolittle.
Also appearing at F1 Rocks The Afterparty will be DJ Havana Brown (pictured above). As Australia’s No 1 female DJ, Havana has toured with the likes of Britney Spears, Lady Gaga and Rihanna, as well as spinning countless exclusive VIP parties and concert across the globe. She is also no stranger to the high octane world of Formula 1 having appeared at the inaugural F1 Rocks event in Singapore in 2009.
Robert Montague, CEO of F1 Rocks said, “We’re excited to bring F1 Rocks the Afterparty to Melbourne for the first time and hope that guests will enjoy our unique brand of entertainment and VIP treatment. F1 Rocks the Afterparty has time and again entertained partygoers, F1 Teams and drivers in the past and we know that our event in Melbourne will be one to remember.”
