The Formula1 Milan Festival will run at the same time as the Formula 1 Heineken Gran Premio d’Italia 2018 which takes place at the historic Autodromo di Monza. It will bring the excitement and passion of an F1 Grand Prix event into the very heart of the city, creating an exciting destination experience for fans.
Monza, known to F1 fans wordwide as The Temple of Speed, is the quickest circuit on the Formula 1 calendar; a breathtaking drive that scythes its way through the beautiful setting of the Parco Reale and the autodromo. Monza has been a permanent part of Formula 1 since its inception in 1950, and its rich history makes it one of the key dates on the sporting calendar.
This year, for the first time ever, F1 will also be in the heart of Milan, the Italian capital of fashion and business, and the fourth global city to host an F1 Fan Festival after London in July 2017, then Shanghai in April, and Marseille in June earlier this year. It will be followed by the Miami Fan Festival, due to take place in October 2018.
The F1 Milan Festival will be open from Wednesday August 29th to Saturday September 1st and will be free for all to attend in the Darsena area (literally ‘the dock’), center of Milan's ancient, and now restored, Navigli water canals. The unique thrills of F1 will blend with the busiest and most buzzing area of Milan, merging exciting activations and events, music and iconic installations to attract and delight people
throughout the day and late into the evening.
Providing the ultimate city centre festival hub, the F1 Park will offer a live car run in an unprecedented city circuit, giving fans a unique opportunity to experience the thrill of seeing modern F1 cars up close on the streets of Milan.
Every evening, F1 House will be the unmissable evening destination within the Darsena area, hosting DJs and personalities from the world of sport, music and entertainment
