Grammy Award-winning artist, Kendrick Lamar has just been announced to headline this year’s Formula One Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix After Race Concert in the UAE capital of Abu Dhabi.
The concert will take place at Etihad Park on 19th November 2022, and Lamar will take to the stage alongside EDM musicians, Swedish House Mafia – the two acts are the only ones to have been confirmed and announced for the event so far for the after race series of concerts.
With the concerts being xclusively for Abu Dhabi Formula One Grand Prix ticket holders, there are two more acts yet to be announced.
Saif Al Noaimi, chief executive of Abu Dhabi Motorsports Management, said in a statement, “We are absolutely thrilled to announce that global superstar and music icon Kendrick Lamar will be entertaining what will be our biggest ever crowds on Saturday evening.” He continued, “Our weekend line-up of on-track and off-track entertainment is looking extremely strong, and with two more A-list global performers yet to be revealed, we are sure that we will again offer a fantastic weekend of sport and entertainment for our 14th edition of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.”
For this year, there is a new ticket system where Abu Dhabi F1 ticket holders will be able to select their own seats in the grandstand using an interactive viewer – this will also help them to see what kind a view they will get from their seats at the concert. Ticketholders will also have the opportunity to upgrade their experience with “Golden Circle” access to the venue, Etihad Park, and this will give them a closer seat to the stage.
John Lickrish, chief executive of Flash Entertainment, said “The Yasalam After-Race Concert series has become the global leader and standard for F1 entertainment programmes around the world. We continually strive to deliver unmissable line-ups for ticketholders for an unparalleled entertainment experience. As one of the world’s biggest artists, the addition of Kendrick Lamar for the Saturday of the four-day festival adds another dimension to Yasalam 2022 and underlines our desire to bring the best artists to Abu Dhabi for an exhilarating weekend of entertainment. We look forward to announcing the final two acts soon to complete our world-class line-up.”
