With just over seven months to go until the 2024 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix weekend, race organisers at Yas Marina Circuit announced the first headline act who’ll be performing at the event. This year’s race falls on December 5-8, with headline concerts set to take place as part of the Yasalam After Race Concert Series on each evening of the event weekend.

The post-race concerts have become a major selling point of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix since it first joined the F1 calendar in 2009. Foo Fighters, Shania Twain, Ava Max and Tiësto were the four headliners at last year’s Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, while previous performers include the likes of Def Leppard, Beyoncé, Rhianna, Stormzy and The Killers.

Abu Dhabi Grand Prix concerts take place at Etihad Park, formerly known as the Du Arena, located between the North Grandstand and Ferrari World. Tickets for all concerts is free-standing general admission access – though you can get closer to the front with Golden Circle ticket upgrades, which will be available soon in our ticket shop.

Yas Marina Circuit has now hosted more season-closing races than any other track, having overtaken Adelaide’s former record in 2023.

Muse to Perform at the 2024 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix

British rock band Muse were the first act confirmed for the 2024 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix weekend, back in April. They’ll be the last of the four headline performers, with their concert taking place after the Grand Prix on Sunday December 8. Abu Dhabi Grand Prix concerts take place on each day of the event, from Thursday through to Sunday. Expect a high octane show, as the band perform some of their biggest hits, including Supermassive Black Hole, Uprising and Starlight

This won’t be Muse’s first performance at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. They took to the stage at the Du Arena as part of the Grand Prix weekend back in 2013. More recently, the band played at the Marina Bay Street Circuit over the 2019 Singapore Grand Prix weekend.

Eminem Headlines after Qualifying

American rapper Eminem is heading to Etihad Park on Saturday December 7 for a special headline show. Set to take place after qualifying for the 2024 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, fan favourites Stan, Lose Yourself and The Real Slim Shady are likely to appear on the setlist.

This will be Eminem’s second performance at a Formula 1 race weekend in 2024. He’s also set to perform at Circuit of The Americas as part of the 2024 United States Grand Prix entertainment line-up. He’s no stranger to F1 or Abu Dhabi, either, having previously taken to the stage at the 2012 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Maroon 5 Headline Friday Night

On Friday December 6, American pop band Maroon 5 will be performing at Etihad Park. Taking to the stage after the opening day of practice has concluded, the band – led by frontman Adam Levine – are best known for chart-topping hits such as Moves Like Jagger – which is the second most downloaded song of all time – Makes Me Wonder, Payphone and She Will Be Loved.

The band head to the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix shortly after ending a run of residency shows at Las Vegas’ Dolby Live at Park MGM Theater. Maroon 5 also have past Formula 1 experience, having previously played at the Singapore Grand Prix twice, in 2012 and 2015.
