• Long-running Saturday night concert makes popular comeback following two-year hiatus
• The Avener to play headline set that takes fans into early hours of Sunday
• Musical performances part of full entertainment line-up for 2022
A host of leading performers will take this summer's TotalEnergies 24 Hours of Spa into the small hours as part of the annual music concert, which makes a popular return at the 28-31 July event.
It follows two editions at which the soundtrack has been provided solely by the roar of GT3 engines, with 2020 and 2021 staged under Covid-19 guidelines. This year will see a full line-up of entertainment, including a comeback concert that features major names from the European music scene.
The party gets underway at 20.30, just as the light is beginning to fade on-track, when USX & Izoard take to the stage. The Belgian duo draw from a range of influences to create a set that fuses live performance with DJing. Having wowed crowds across the globe, including shows in Europe, Africa and the Middle East, they will return home to launch the 2022 TotalEnergies 24 Hour of Spa concert in style.
At 22:00 it will be the turn of Jeremie Charlier and MC Shurakano. Charlier hails from Brabant Wallon and began mixing at parties, developing an eclectic style that brings together deep house and refined electro. He soon attracted international attention and has performed in Paris, Los Angeles, New York and Hong Kong. He will be joined on stage by MC Shurakano, a vocalist and self-proclaimed mood catalyst whose performing career stretches back to the early nineties.
The night hits a new high at 23:00 when The Avener steps up for his headline set. Tristan Casara is a French-born deep house and electro producer whose musical journey began at the age of five when he studied classical piano at the conservatory of Nice. Performing as The Avener, he shot to fame in 2014 with his smash-hit single Fade Out Lines, which heralded Casara as a new star of the electronic scene. He will be on stage for 90 minutes, taking fans through the midnight hour and beyond.
Finally, Calumny will bring the curtain down on the concert with another 90-minute set. The duo was formed in 2018, united by a common love of house music, and earned national radio coverage in Belgium for their 2020 singles What I Desire and Selfish. Having risen to prominence when touring was impossible, they made up for lost time in 2021 with more than 20 summer performances. After finding success at home and abroad, they will continue their rise by closing the concert at Belgium's premier international sports car race.
Entrance to the concert is included in the price of a general admission ticket for the full weekend and forms part of an extensive line-up of entertainment at this year's event. Attendees can also enjoy the TotalEnergies 24 Hours of Spa Fan Zone, located at the bottom of Raidillon, while the parade to Spa town centre also makes a popular comeback. Open to attend free of charge, this will reprise the tradition of featuring every entrant contesting the twice-around-the-clock race, as well as some noteworthy additions from the support package.
The headline race of Fanatec GT World Challenge Europe Powered by AWS and Intercontinental GT Challenge Powered by Pirelli, the TotalEnergies 24 Hours of Spa is acknowledged as the global pinnacle in long-distance GT racing. Scheduled for 28-31 July, the 2022 edition will represent the 74th running since its inauguration in 1924. Tickets are on sale now for what promises to be another memorable edition of the Belgian endurance classic.
