The F1 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix takes place from November 22 – 25 on Yas Island, with The Weeknd taking the stage at du Arena on Friday, November 23. Three more headlining acts are still yet to be announced. Last year’s artist line-up featured J. Cole, Pink, Calvin Harris and Mumford & Sons.

The Weeknd last performed in Dubai back in 2014, and his Starboy power has grown considerably since then. Two number one albums and three Grammy Awards later, he has become one of the most critically-acclaimed artists in music, collaborating with everyone from Kanye West to Beyoncé and Kendrick Lamar.
