Organisers of the season-ending Formula One Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on Tuesday released their schedule of on-track and off-track entertainment.

The festival atmosphere will last for five days, starting with Super Thursday, on November 28, and culminating in the following Monday’s 48th UAE National Day celebrations on December 2, providing a wide range of activities for F1 race fans as well as music lovers and families.

Including after-race concert performances from artists including Travis Scott and The Killers – with two more acts to be announced – the festival features Pit Lane Walks, F1 Fanzone activities, Oasis areas with live entertainment and unique experiences such as Yas Hot Laps and a revamped KartZone.

On December 2, ticket holders can share Emiratis’ pride in their nation and head to fan favourite Abu Dhabi Hill and the F1 Fanzone to enjoy car parades, drifting and Yas Hot Laps on track, with off-track entertainment including food trucks, fireworks, street performers, a Laser Escape Room, Pit Stop Challenge and F1 simulators plus much more.

Appearing for the first time at Yas Marina Circuit this year will be some of the world’s rarest and most desirable classic cars, before RM Sotheby’s first Abu Dhabi Grand Prix auction.

And for culture lovers, there is 50 per cent off entry to Louvre Abu Dhabi across the whole weekend for ticket holders.

Providing more value for families in the UAE is the introduction of the Family Pass, which provides 50 per cent off admission for up to three children under 12 years for every two adult North Grandstand three-day tickets sold.

Another family offer is the Kids Go Free package, meaning three-day ticket holders can register online before the weekend and bring up to four children (aged 12 and under) for free. Plus, the Super Parks Pass gives you and the family access to all Yas Island theme parks, providing even more fun and entertainment.
