Happier hitmaker, Marshmello will open the weekend on the Yasalam After Race Concerts at du Arena on Thursday November 28. While Lana Del Rey will take the stage on Saturday November 30.
Who is Marshmello?
When the mysterious helmet-wearing music producer takes the stage at du Arena later this year, fans can expect to hear an array of his hit singles from the last four years including Happier, Wolves, Friends, Alone and Silence – all of which were clues to Yas Marina circuit’s teaser post.
The producer has worked with the likes of Anne-Marie, Bastille, Craig David, Selena Gomez, Khalid, James Arthur and Juicy J. No stranger to the UAE, Marshmello last performed in Dubai at Red Fest, which took place in February 2018.
Who is Lana Del Rey?
Elizabeth Woolridge Grant, known professionally as Lana Del Rey, captured the world’s attention with her debut single Video Games in 2011. Her unique musical style has been described as ‘Hollywood sadcore’ or alternative pop, as she takes influences from a variety of opposing genres.
When Lana takes the stage on Saturday November 30, fans can expect some of her biggest past and current hits, including Video Games, Born to Die, Summertime Sadness and West Coast. It will be the first time that the songstress has performed in the UAE.
Both stars will join the already announced Travis Scott, who will take to the stage on Friday November 29, The Killers, who will close the show on Sunday December 1.
