Tiesto, Carl Cox and Martin Garrix announced for Abu Dhabi F1
The Alchemy Project has just announced that Tiësto, Carl Cox and Martin Garrix will be playing at the biggest race event of the year, the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
As part of the event company’s latest initiative, Beyond The Track, the trio will be performing separately over three consecutive nights from Friday, November 24 at Yas Island’s Du Forum.
Martin Garrix will be behind the decks on Friday, November 24 from 10pm to 5am. The 21-year-old Dutchman who was somewhat of a protégée for Tiësto, is now number one DJ in the world according to DJ mag’s rankings.
He’s best known for his debut single “Animals”, which was 2013’s sound of the summer, reaching number one in the UK and Belgium, and going double platinum in the US. But far from being his biggest achievement, this only served as a springboard for his music career.
Considered one of the youngest influencers on the electronic scene, he was in Billboard’s prestigious ’21 under 21’, as well as Forbes’ ’30 under 30’.
Next is Carl Cox. The radio host, founder of Intec Digital and veteran of the house music scene, will be demonstrating exactly how it is done on Saturday, November 25. With over 25 years of experience, expect to bust some serious moves.
Closing the three day festival is none other than Tiësto. The 46-year-old trance and progressive house producer has been at the forefront of dance music for two decades, having cruised through different dance music genres over the years. In 2005 he released “Adagio for Strings” from his album, Just Be, which has gone down in music history. Mixmag readers voted it the second greatest dance record of all time.
Now that you know who’ll be performing, here’s how you can get your hands on some tickets…
Tickets to Beyond The Track start from AED 295 and will go on sale tomorrow (August 1) at 10am exclusively at www.TixBox.com.
