Have you ever dreamt of getting behind the wheel of a spanking new luxury vehicle and taking it for a drive, just because you could?
Well Cheapo, this is your chance to pretend to be a big shot, at the Mercedes-Benz BAM Festival, a three-day outdoor event with test drives of the latest Mercedes-Benz models, previews of new technologies, plus lots of entertainment and performances.
BAM describes itself as a ‘forward-thinking urban festival’, that brings together cars, technology, the arts, music, and innovators from a variety of industries.
What to expect
Previous iterations have seen a car show as the big part of the event, with the premiere of Mercedes-Benz’s latest models. While it has yet to be confirmed to happen in 2022, in order to participate in a test drive or — if you lack a driver’s license, a test ride — online registration was required in the past. Enthusiasts can also get an up-close look at new proprietary technologies developed by Mercedes-Benz.
In addition to the cars, there are workshops and talks held throughout the weekend, the chance to try augmented reality headsets, performances and live music, yoga and fitness/wellness, and lots of food and drinks served up by Hong Kong’s hottest restaurants and bars.
The BAM Festival is free to attend, but you’ll need to register online and provide a mobile phone number to receive the SMS. Simply follow the ticket link below.
