Abu Dhabi Grand Prix After-Race Concerts

One of the reasons the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix stands out on the F1 circuit is its star-studded line-up of after-race concerts performed exclusively to ticket holders.

For four nights during the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, world-class music acts will take to the stage at du Arena, the world’s largest outdoor venue capable of hosting 35,000 audience members at a time.

Global names who have performed in previous years include Beyoncé, Calvin Harris, Kylie Minogue, Kings of Leon, Mumford and Sons, Pink, Florence and the Machine and Blur.

The exclusivity of these concerts cannot be underestimated as they are only available to grand prix ticket holders, including superyacht-goers with Yas Marina Daily Passes and Yas Marina VIP Passes.

For fast-track access in and out of the venue, ticket holders can buy a Golden Circle upgrade. Doing so will also provide front-row access and the chance to get up close and personal with the A-list performers.  

To purchase an upgrade, either call the Yas Marina Circuit or go directly to the Yas Marina main office at the Golden Circle counter during race week.   

Doors to the concerts usually open around 6pm and, upon arrival, music lovers will be treated to an array of activities within the Village area of du Arena. Local and regional artists will play live on stage before the headline act gets underway and there will be food trucks offering bites to eat.

2022 After-Race Concert line-up:

  • Thursday 17 November: TBC
  • Friday 18 November: Swedish House Mafia
  • Saturday 19 November: Kendrick Lamar
  • Sunday 20 November: TBC
