Each year there's big anticipation for which acts will entertain crowds following the daily races on the big Abu Dhabi Grand Prix weekend. And as usual, we had to eagerly wait to find out P!nk and Calvin Harris were performing at the Yasalam After-Race Concerts for 2017. Now a third act has been revealed - Mumford & Sons.
Taking place at the du Arena on Yas Island, the British rockers will play Saturday November 25 while Calvin's gig is November 23 and P!nk's is November 26. That leaves an opening for a further announcement about Friday November 24's act closer to the time.
The Grammy-and-Brit-Award-winners have had many greats play the venue before them; Stevie Wonder, Eric Clapton, Beyonce, Linkin Park, Kings of Leon, Aerosmith, Guns 'n' Roses, Shakira, Snoop Dogg, Janet Jackson, Madonna, Eminem, Paul McCartney, David Guetta, JAY Z, Justin Timberlake, Black Sabbath and Metallica. Phew!

The 'GP Parks Pass' is a three-day package that allows unlimited access to Yas Island Parks – Ferrari World Abu Dhabi and Yas Waterworld – on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
