Supplementing previously revealed headliners Pink and Imagine Dragons, Circuit of the Americas announced Tuesday that more than two dozen local acts will perform on the grounds of next month's Formula 1 United States Grand Prix race, among them Grammy-winning Latin-funk band Grupo Fantasma, energetic swamp-pop outfit Shinyribs, soulful R&B singer-songwriter Melat and Grammy-nominated bluegrassers Wood & Wire.
Also in the lineup are Mobley, Riders Against the Storm, Capyac, Superfonicos, A. Sinclair, Night Drive, Trouble in the Streets, Heart Byrne, Money Chicha, Peter More, Otis the Destroyer, Leopold & His Fiction, Shivery Shakes, Rod Melancon, Ghost Wolves, Brent Cowles, Deva Mahal, Jeremy Steding, Son Fjord, the Well, Brother Sundance, ThePetebox and DJs Chorizo Funk, Manolo Black, King Louie and Jester the Filipino Fist.
A schedule has not been released yet, but the performances will take place on several stages across the racetrack grounds. Preceding Sunday's race, Shinyribs leader Kevin Russell will sing the national anthem to a televised audience that Tuesday's press statement claimed will be "a global audience of more than 18 million people."
The Formula 1 U.S. Grand Prix runs Nov. 1-3; three-day general-admission passes, $195, and single-day tickets, $65-350, are still on sale via the venue's website.
