Kendrick Lamar to headline Abu Dhabi F1 concert


DUBAI: Grammy winning artist Kendrick Lamar has been announced as the latest headlining act at the Yasalam After-Race Concert on Nov. 19 at the Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix 2022.

The “Humble” artist joins Swedish House Mafia in the lineup, with two more global acts still to be announced for the four-day festival.

Lamar has achieved massive critical and cultural success since his debut album “good kid, m.A.A.d city” released in 2012. He has accumulated 14 Grammy wins, and became the first non-classical, non-jazz musician to win a Pulitzer Prize for his 2017 album “DAMN.” Lamar’s latest album “Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers” was released in May 2022 to rave reviews.

This year’s race weekend takes place from Nov. 17 to 20 at Yas Marina Circuit.

Access to the concerts is exclusively for Abu Dhabi Grand Prix ticket holders, who can also purchase Golden Circle access, for a closer view of the stage at Etihad Park.
