Akon joins epic Abu Dhabi Grand Prix line-up at MAD on Yas Island

So many huge stars have been announced for Abu Dhabi Grand Prix gigs lately, it’s become hard to keep track.

And another one has just joined the ever-growing list of genuine world-class talent descending on the capital this weekend.

Lonely hitmaker Akon (that’s the name of his song, not a slight on his character) has signed up to play an epic set at MAD on Yas Island.

You’ll also know hits such as The Sweet Escape, Smack That, Beautiful and Don’t Matter.

He joins Nelly, Future and French Montana on an incredible line-up at one of the capital’s biggest party hotspots.

Akon will play at the superclub on Saturday, November 24.

Tickets start at Dhs200 and can be bought through Virgin Megastore.

We can hardly wait.
