Abu Dhabi is set to become a hive of high octane, action-packed activity as FLASH Entertainment expands the unmissable community-wide line-up for the Yasalam festival with the introduction of “Live Across the City”.
Kicking off on Friday, 16 November, the Yasalam Live Across the City activation will see a flurry of fast paced, free activity that will celebrate the key pillars of music and motorsports as the F1® weekend gears up, ready to reach fever point the following week.
Car Parade – 16 November, 2:30pm – 5pm
As the lights flash green on the countdown activity, residents of the Capital will be invited to witness an automotive display of a different kind as a breath-taking car parade takes to the streets of Abu Dhabi. Featuring various vintage and modern cars from around the UAE along with supercars and virtually any type of car you can think of, the parade will weave its way across the city, and come to a halt at the Live Across the City ‘Pit Stop’ situated at A’l Bahar. Ensuring that music remains at the heartbeat of activity, the parade will feature a decorative float hosting performers and a DJ to keep crowds entertained as it passes through the city.
Pit Stop at A’l Bahar Corniche – Friday, 16 November – Sunday, 25 November, 4pm-11pm daily.
Revving up on Friday, 16 November and running until the final day of Yasalam on 25 November, is the Pit Stop at A’l Bahar on the Corniche. Featuring an activation village with local bands and DJ’s daily, the Pit Stop promises to be a hive of activity with the finale of the Emerging Talent Competition set to captivate audiences on the 22 November when the top 4 music talents in the GCC take to the stage. Also on site to celebrate the race season and offer motorsport enthusiasts the opportunity to test the same skills required of F1® drivers, will be fun hands-on activities, including the batak and race room challenges. For the motorsport aficionados, the Pit Stop will host an impressive display of unique cars to admire each day.
