Taking centre stage this Eid is Yasalam, the huge free-to-the-public festival running along the UAE capital’s Corniche beachfront. Yasalam is being held in conjunction with EidFest Abu Dhabi for the first time and will ensure international artists, acts and entertainers keep crowds buzzing in the build-up to the Formula 1™ Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, running November 2-4.
Top names performing as part of the free-to-attend ‘Beats on the Beach’ concerts over Grand Prix week include Missy Elliot, Tamir Hosny, Cee Lo Green and Mel C. Fans can also get up-close to the motorsport action over Eid at the F1 Fanzone™, which will see autograph signings, merchandise stands, racing challenges and simulators running throughout.
Just before the Grand Prix, fans of all-things celluloid and animation should make a beeline for TropFest Arabia, the world’s largest short film festival, on October 26 – a key attraction in the awesome, six-week-long Yasalam and EidFest Abu Dhabi celebrations.
