Three nights of DJ superstars added to Abu Dhabi F1 weekend

Alchemy Project lines up Martin Garrix, Tiesto and Carl Cox

A new addition to Abu Dhabi’s Formula 1 weekend will see three DJ megastars take to the decks at Du Forum.

Dance music supremos Alchemy Project’s three-night Beyond The Track event sees the promoters return to the scene with a bang after five years away.

Martin Garrix will perform on Friday, November 24, Carl Cox on Saturday, November 25 and Tiesto will round off the weekend on Sunday. November 26.

They will appear at Du Forum, Yas Island, adding to the after-race Yasalam gigs by Calvin Harris, P!nk (and another act, still to be revealed) as part of the capital’s biggest weekend of action.

At just 20, Garrix is already one of the world’s biggest dance music names, with his 2016 global smash In The Name Of Love cementing his place at the top of the DJ table.

Trance and house superstar Tiesto has been in the business a little longer, but his star is still shining as brightly, having been named the greatest DJ of all time by Mixmag and voted the world’s number one DJ three times by DJ Mag.

Veteran Cox is a pioneer in house and techno music, performing in the early days of the British rave scene before takinghis music overground in the 1990s, when his tracks regularly made the Top 40. He now has a radio show, Global, that is streamed around the world, reaching 17 million weekly listeners.
