The podium lounge A-List after-parties, famous for their track-side celebrations, will return to Yas Island during the upcoming Abu Dhabi Grand Prix next month.
Taking place from November 27 to 29, the celebrity packed events hosted at du Forum on Yas Island will feature top performers, fashion shows, auctions and art exhibitions.
The opening night on Friday, November 27 will welcome the Grammy nominated Freemasons; one of the world's hottest dance acts who found worldwide fame with their smash hits Love on My Mind, Rain Down Love and Uninvited. They will be supported by singing sensation Katherine Ellis who recently wrote and sang the title track of the Oscar winning Hollywood film Gravity .
Rapper Sky Blu (or 8ky 6lu) from the duo LMFAO will be turbo-boosting the high-octane party celebrations on Saturday, November 28. As well as being a Grammy nominated artist, DJ, singer/songwriter and producer, Sky Blu is a walking party; a wiggler and shuffler to the fans, delivering non-stop club action with a distinct knack for artistic creation and his larger than life "party rock" persona. The Party Rock Anthem with 950 million YouTube views remains one of the most watched music videos of all time.
On race night, Sunday, November 29, master British producer and remixer Joey Negro, one of the most celebrated forefathers of the UK dance scene, will be headlining with a celebratory disco house set. With a stack of pop crossover hit singles with tracks such as Must Be The Music, Make A Move On Me and Jakatta's American Dream making the UK Top 10, Negro is a royal regent of the dance-music-compilation realm.
The Podium Lounge consistently sees celebrities such as Gordon Ramsey, Kim Kardashian, Princess Charlene of Monaco, several Miss Universes and royalty attending alongside F1 racing legends including Sir Jackie Stewart and Sebastian Vettel. From the pit lane to the catwalk, the excitement continues as international models join the Fashion Circuit across all three nights where guests will get an exclusive look at some of the world's most beautiful dresses from leading international brands and emerging local designers.
To commemorate the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, Brent Benger, the official artist for The Rolling Stone Magazine Super Bowl Party 2015, will host a special pop-up exhibition of his works at The Podium Lounge. Benger will be joined by world famous speed painter Armin Flossdorf, who will also be performing for guests throughout the weekend.
Each night will also feature a live auction of rare and authenticated F1 memorabilia including race helmets, suits, gloves and race programmes signed by some of the legends of motorsport including Ayrton Senna, Michael Schumacher, Sir Jack Brabham, Lewis Hamilton and Niki Lauda.
Tickets for each night are Dhs400 in advance and Dhs500 on the door (Dhs900 for a three-night pass), available from www.podiumlounge.com/ae/tickets
