We called it! Mumford and Sons will join Pink and Calvin Harris at the after race concerts.

Back in July, the first two artists were announced for the 2017 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix after race concerts.

And now it has been confirmed that British rockers Mumford will perform on Saturday November 25 as part of the Yasalam After-Race Concerts.

Super DJ Calvin Harris (who will play on Thursday November 23), and big-voiced pop singer-songwriter Pink (who’ll take the stage on Sunday November 26). A final act is still to be announced for the Friday night.

On Sunday, we speculated that the award winning Brit band would be joining the line up after the Yas Marina Circuit Twitter account began dropping clues:

We reckoned this emoji combination referenced Mumford and Sons 2009 song, Roll Away Your Stone.


A second clue of a return arrow, a thunder cloud and a tornado appeared to reference another of the British quartet’s singles, After The Storm, which featured on their 2009 Album, Sigh No More.

We’re excited to see Mumford and Sons join the line up.

The British four-piece formed a decade ago and have amassed several awards including two Brit awards and an album of the year Grammy for their 2012 release, Babel. The album remains the fastest selling rock album of the decade.

Who would you like to see join the line-up?
