Abu Dhabi's The Big Grill festival reveals bumper food and music line-up

We all love a good barbecue, and grilled meats taste even better when they are accompanied by live music.

Debuting at Yas Links Golf Club from December 6 to 8, The Big Grill 2018 festival has adopted a ‘grillin ‘n’ chillin’ theme.

The three-day event will feature succulent steaks, flaming barbecues and an exciting line-up of local and international artists.

Foodies from across the UAE will descend on Yas Island to attend the fun-filled gathering.

On Thursday, December 6, the event kicks off with Afro Night. 

Presented by the African restaurant KIZA, the night will feature the hottest African beats, live stage performances and DJs.

Then Reggae band Big Mountain, known for their hit single Baby, I love Your Way, will be treating revelers to a performance on both the Friday and Saturday. UAE band Abri & Funk Radius will also be warming up the crowd with their Funk, Reggae, Neo-soul and R&B tunes.

The final night will be full of nostalgia as top tribute band ABBA MANIA take to the stage.

It’s the perfect excuse to dig out your best flares and boogie to Mamma Mia, Voulez Vous, Dancing Queen and other ABBA favourites - and enjoy a mega foodie festival at the same time.

Doors will be open from 4pm to 11pm on Thursday December 6, and from noon to 11pm on December 7 and 8.

Admission is free when you register in advance at platinumlist.net.
