Miami Grand Prix Party Guide 2022

Watch out, Art Basel and Miami Music Week. There’s a new party week in town to give ‘em all a run for their money.

This magical week centers on the inaugural Formula 1 Miami Grand Prix at Hard Rock Stadium, May 6-8.

Last month, race organizers announced a ten-year deal for the open-wheel spectacle, so buckle up for a decade of good times. If year one is any indication, there’s a whole lot more to Race Week than super-fast cars: Musicians, world-class DJs, and A-list celebs will converge on the 305, leading to a nonstop, internal combustion-infused fiesta like never before.

Don’t know where to start? Here are some of the best parties during the week of the 2022 Miami Grand Prix.

Formula 1 Miami Grand Prix Opening Party at Hard Rock Stadium

It’s only appropriate that the week officially kicks off at the site of all the racing action. Norwegian DJ Kygo — known for international hits “Lose Somebody,” “Higher Love,” and “It Ain’t Me” — headlines a star-studded opening party on a massive podium at Hard Rock Stadium’s southern edge, overlooking the fountains and the racetrack itself. Some of the weekend’s big-name drivers will be introduced on the stage where the race’s winners will be crowned. 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 4, at Hard Rock Stadium, 347 Don Shula Dr., Miami Gardens.
