Three huge DJs announced for Abu Dhabi F1 race weekend
Martin Garrix, Carl Cox and Tiesto will all perform in the capital this November
Earlier this month, Pink and Calvin Harris were the first two acts announced for the Abu Dhabi F1 after-race concerts: and while we’re still waiting for the other two performers to be named, three legendary DJs have just been added to the weekend lineup.
They will all perform at Beyond The Track hosted at du Forum, and unlike the main event concerts, you don’t have to buy F1 race weekend tickets for these nights out.
Beyond The Track by Alchemy Project will see Martin Garrix kick things off on Friday November 24. No stranger to the UAE, Garrix performed at Sensation Dubai in 2014 and headlined Meydan on New Year’s Eve in 2015. His hits include 2013 number one Animals, Don’t Look Down, a collaboration with Usher, and the recent smash hit There For You.
Veteran DJ Carl Cox will then take to the stage on Saturday November 25. His second appearance in the UAE this year, Cox took to the decks in April at Blue Marlin Ibiza UAE. The British DJ and techno producer has become an icon in the electronic dance music (EDM) scene, having had residencies at Space Ibiza, Ultra Festival and curating his own music festival in Australia called Pure Festival.
The final act to round up the weekend is Tiesto. The Grammy award winning DJ is returning to the UAE after first playing two gigs in 2016. Previously dubbed “the Godfather of EDM”, Tiesto has been releasing music since 1994, and is most famous for tracks including Red Lights and Wasted. He will close the show on Sunday November 26.
Registration is open now and tickets will go on sale from 10am tomorrow morning, August 1. Prices start from Dhs295. Table packages will also be available.
