Get ready to see a gigantic crowd dance to "Shake It Off": Taylor Swift is set for one of her biggest shows ever.

In October, she'll perform a special concert as part of Formula One United States Grand Prix in Austin, Texas, Billboard has confirmed. 

“The top performer in the world right now is Taylor Swift and she will perform on the Saturday before the race the following day,” Circuit of the Americas chairman Bobby Epstein told Forbes. “It will be a one-off show. Her only show in 2016. We think we can bring in 100,000 new people and put on the biggest show."

Elton John played at last year’s U.S. Grand Prix.

The concert will take place Oct. 22; tickets go on sale April 6.
