Abu Dhabi Grand Prix: Your guide to Saturday

By now, Abu Dhabi Grand Prix weekend is in full swing.

We've had Post Malone, Nelly and Erick Morillo opening the festivities with epic shows on Thursday.

While The Weeknd, French Montana and Roger Sanchez do the honours on Friday.

Saturday sees things hotting up, with qualification for the big race itself taking place at 5pm on the Yas Marina Circuit track.

It decides who goes where for the main event, which takes place on Sunday at 5.10pm.

There's a whole host of other events and fun on Saturday first, though.

A handful of really cool pop-up events are taking place, including the epic PLG Grand Slam eSports tournament.

Gamers will battle each other for glory and prize money while guests enjoy great views overlooking the track.

Later, Grammy winner Sam Smith is the big name signed up for the Yasalam post-race concert at du Arena.

The gates open at 6pm and close at 8pm, when the Writing's On The Wall singer is set to take to the stage.

Saturday is also a big night for some of the most sought-after parties.

Amber Lounge, at Yas Links Golf Club, welcomes Craig David and Sigala for what should be a night to remember, with doors opening at 11pm.

1OAK and Dubai clubbing hotspot BASE have teamed up for an epic pop-up above Cipriani, with TYGA providing the entertainment.

Akon will thrill crowds at Abu Dhabi favourite MAD on Yas Island, with doors opening at 11pm.

And there will be some really cool Live Across The City celebrations at A'l Bahar on the Corniche.
