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.

There’s loads going on at Yas Island between November 22 and 25, and you can find out all about the happenings there and across the city at our dedicated Grand Prix page here.

Dhs200 (ladies, two drinks), Dhs350 (men, two drinks). 11pm-5am, Sat Nov 24. MAD on Yas Island, www.tickets.virginmegastore.me (055 834 6262).
