Kendrick Lamar completes Abu Dhabi F1 concerts line-up

ABU DHABI, October 15, 2017

Top Dawg Entertainment recording artist Kendrick Lamar has been confirmed as the headline artist playing the du Arena on November 24, completing a full four-day line-up of world-class entertainment at the 2017 Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Lamar will join the internationally-renowned DJ Calvin Harris playing November 23, UK-based rockers Mumford & Sons playing November 25, with global icon P!NK closing out the weekend on November 26.

A California native, Lamar has received a number of accolades over the course of his career, including seven Grammy Awards. He embarked on his musical journey as a teenager under the stage name K-Dot, and quickly gained recognition in 2011 following the release of Section 80.

The announcement was made as organisers also revealed that an extra 1,000 three-day tickets for Abu Dhabi Hill will be available for purchase. Starting at Dh995 ($270.8) the ticket provides ticket holders access to Thursday Pit Lane Walk, all four days of racing as well as all four days of the Yasalam After-Race Concerts. Yas Marina Circuit urges people to buy quickly as this is a limited offer of a popular ticket category.

Al Tareq Al Ameri, CEO of Yas Marina Circuit, said: "Today's announcements means that we now have yet another full star-studded weekend to ensure the thousands of visitors that come to enjoy the region's biggest and best weekend of sport and entertainment have an outstanding experience.

"In addition to the excitement on the track, our ninth Abu Dhabi Grand Prix offers something for everyone. Whether you're a dedicated F1 fan, a music lover or looking for an incredible family weekend, you will not be disappointed."

As always, the only way to enjoy the four Yasalam After-Race Concert performances will be to purchase a ticket for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Tickets are available online, through the Yas Marina Circuit Call Centre, as well as at Etihad Shops and Virgin Megastores, and through the YasHUB smartphone app and its Facebook shop. - TradeArabia News Service
