The post Abu Dhabi Grand Prix show at du Arena, Yasalam, will be headlined by Rihanna.

The three-night music festival is one of the best known and most anticipated in the region, having played host to some of the biggest names in music including Jay Z, Beyonce, The Who, Eminem, Britney Spears, Florence and the Machine and more.

While the full line-up is yet to be announced, it has been confirmed that dance music icons The Chemical Brothers will be providing the post-race entertainment on Friday, November 25 and on Sunday, November 27. Also headlining on the last day (Sunday, November 27) of the Abu Dhabi Formula One tournament is Rihanna. Saturday’s act is not yet to be announced, though rumour has it that Drake may be making an appearance.

Those looking to go to the main concerts will have to have to buy tickets for the F1, either for the qualifying or pre-qualifying races, with a three-day pass costing between Dhs1,000 and Dhs4,685.

The last time she was in the UAE was back in 2013, again at the du Arena, playing to a sold-out crowd. And of course, trending it up at the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque.
