All you need to know about one of the biggest events of the year

When is the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix 2019?

If you listen closely you can almost hear the cars revving their engines on Yas Marina Circuit.

The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix is just around the corner and it’s undoubtedly one of the biggest sporting spectacles in the UAE and the region.

For one weekend every November the eyes of the world are on Yas Marina Circuit as the Formula One season comes to a close with a nighttime race in Abu Dhabi.

Six-time World Drivers Champion Lewis Hamilton will be looking to end a spectacular season on a high with a win and the likes of teammate Valtteri Bottas, Max Verstappen, Daniel Ricciardo and Sebastian Vettel will be pushing him every metre of the track.

Away from the on-track action a huge number of stars descend on Abu Dhabi for a great weekend and to watch the race live and be part of on the most impressive Grand Prix’s in the world.

This year, the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix takes place at 5.10pm UAE time on Sunday, December 1.

But the weekend starts long before that with practising on November 29 and qualifying on November 30 so there’s more to the huge sporting event than the big race itself.

Plus a public holiday has been confirmed that weekend so there’s a good chance you won’t be in work during the day and can make it along to the circuit in good time to catch all of the action.

Tickets for the race are available on Yas Marina Circuit’s website, but there aren’t a huge number left as the race heads towards another sell out.

As always a massive line-up of international acts have been confirmed to take to the stage at du Arena for the Yasalam after race concerts.

First up popular DJ Marshmello will get the good times going on Thursday November 28 and will bang out his big hits including Happier, Alone, Friends, Wolves and Keep It Mello.

Next up it’s over to rapper Travis Scott on Friday November 29, who is back in the city after an appearance at MAD on Yas Island in 2016 and will delight fans with his hits including Goosebumps, SICKO MODE and Antidote.

Grammy-award nominated artist Lana Del Rey is the headline act on Saturday November 30 who is best known for her songs Born To Die, West Coast, Summertime Sadness, Video Games and Lust For Life.

Finally, bringing the whole event to a close after the race has run its course, tock band The Killers will take to the stage on Sunday December 1 to perform their massive hits including Mr Brightside, Somebody Told Me, Human and When We Were Young.

There are also loads of parties, brunches, after parties, pop-up events, luxury parties and more going on throughout the weekend to keep you busy.
