Recap of artists that performed at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix
The Grand Prix is finally over and we’re already feeling nostalgic, if you had the opportunity to attend over the weekend then you’re probably feeling those post-concert blues too, right? We’ve put together a little recap of all the artists who performed and if you didn’t get to see them, then hopefully you can live vicariously through some of these videos:

Post Malone

Posty has really come along way since his breakout hit White Iverson put him on the map about three years ago. He gained a massive following and fan base and has been consistently touring for what seems like ages. If you’re a big fan then you must’ve been shocked when you found out he was coming to the UAE, because it’s not every day that big rap/R&B artists come to our neck of the woods. His performance did not disappoint and those in the crowd got to vibe along to his music and witness his humble personality firsthand.

We stalked his Instagram and found this chic picture of him professionally taken in front of the breathtaking Sheik Zayed Mosque… when in Abu Dhabi right! We’re definitely here for the more formal looking Posty… suit up!

The Weeknd

This is the Weeknd’s second performance in the UAE, his first being in Dubai back in 2014. This dude doesn’t need much introduction, he’s established his name as one of the biggest artists in R&B ever since Drake discovered him a few years ago.

His girlfriend, Bella Hadid (who we all know as one of the most popularย supermodels in the industry) accompanied him to Abu Dhabi for moral support and of course, to quad bike in the desert. She posted the picture below to her Instagram which shows the Weeknd and French Montana (another performer) looking very smiley together. Aw, friends!

Again, did you even go to the UAE if you don’t a) visit the desert b) quad bike and c) take a million pictures for all your instagram followers to see?


Sam Smith

What can we say about this dude other than the fact that he has the voice of an angel? Pretty much nothing will do him justice, so just check out the video below that someone was able to capture of him performing… you can’t help but sing along and smile when you watch!

Guns N Roses

One of the most iconic bands in rock history also graced us all with one of their amazing performances. We were able to find another video so have a watch & enjoy!


No matter what I do, all I think about is you… even when I’m with my boo, you know I’m crazy over you… it’s impossible to think of Nelly without that song popping up in your head (and of course the iconic music video with Kelly Rowland which couldn’t describe the early 2000s any better). We do have some good news though,ย Nelly’sย performing again tonight at Toy Room’s ladies night so make sure you don’t have any other plans for tonight.

French Montana

Last but not least, have a look at the video French Montana posted on his Instagram of him straight off the plane about to walk onto the stage! The minute he’s greeted by Posty and the two share a super sweet hug will melt your heart ๐Ÿ™‚


We hope that you enjoyed yourselves this past weekend, both at the races and concerts! We’ll be patiently waiting for the next festival-type event coming up, hopefully, it’s not too far away…
