SINGAPORE - Some of the world's biggest pop stars will be descending on our shores for a weekend of merriment at the Padang, as part of the 2013 SingTel Singapore Grand Prix.

From Sept 20 to 23, fans will be treated to a packed roster of pop, rock, K-pop, alternative, indie and everything-in-between music and entertainment acts.

It'll be a hugely manic time, so here are some tips to enjoy it as best you can:

BIG BANG (Sept 20)

DO: Give K-pop a chance with Big Bang, even if you're not a fan.

The boy band's hiphop and R&B stylings can be appreciated by everyone, which is why they were the first K-pop act to chart on the Billboard 200 in the US with a Korean album (that being last year's Alive).

The quintet then followed up with a world tour that saw thousands of fans chasing them in cities as far flung as Seoul, South Korea, and Lima, Peru.

DON'T: Be late! K-pop bands are famously punctual, so when the boys say they'll be on stage at 11.15pm, you'd better not be in the loo at the same time.
