Kendrick Lamar to Headline This Year’s Abu Dhabi Grand Prix After-Race Concert

Global superstar Kendrick Lamar will be headlining this year’s Formula One Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix after-race concert. The multi-platinum selling artist will join techno trio Swedish House Mafia for the star-studded show at Etihad Park on November 19, 2022, with two more headliners to be announced. Back in 2017, Lamar was scheduled to perform the same gig but pulled out for undisclosed personal reasons, with J Cole stepping in last minute.

“As one of the world’s biggest artists, the addition of Kendrick Lamar for the Saturday of the four-day festival adds another dimension to Yasalam 2022 and underlines our desire to bring the best artists to Abu Dhabi for an exhilarating weekend of entertainment. We look forward to announcing the final two acts soon to complete our world-class line-up.” stated John Lickrish CEO of Flash Entertainment.

Since dropping his debut album ‘good kid, m.A.A.d city’ in 2012, Lamar has gone on to achieve massive critical and cultural success, snagging 14 Grammy wins and becoming the first non-classical, non-jazz musician to win a Pulitzer Prize for his 2017 album “DAMN.”

This year’s F1 race weekend will run from Nov. 17 to 20 at Yas Marina Circuit. Access to the after-concert is exclusively for Abu Dhabi Grand Prix ticket holders.
