 What are this year’s entertainment privileges?

Y1 Access will provide all ticketholders with the following package of value-added benefits and discounts:

• Complimentary tickets to the Yasalam After Race Concerts: Free access will be provided to three after-race concerts, with Australian superstar Kylie Minogue performing on the first night (Friday 2nd November), Canadian rockers Nickelback playing on the second night (Saturday 3rd November) and hip hop sensation Eminem on the final night (Sunday 4th November). Please note that ticketholders must collect a concert wristband each day for that evening’s concert at the circuit ticket entrance. No wristband, no concert access!

• Concert upgrades for early birds: Each day, 2,000 lucky F1™ ticketholders will receive a free upgrade to the Golden Circle at the Yasalam After Race concerts, with amazing close-up views of the performances. Feeling lucky? Make sure you’re one of the first to arrive at Yas Marina Circuit each day for a chance to win!

• Invite your friends to a concert… for free! The first 15,000 UAE-based ticketholders will receive a pair of complimentary invitations to the Friday night concert in their packs, allowing you to kick-start the weekend in style with friends or family. Share the love!

• Generous discounts on other concerts: If that wasn’t enough, all F1™ ticketholders are entitled to a huge 20% off selected FLASH concerts until December 2012, including SkyBar. With the likes of Coldplay, Metallica, Shakira, David Guetta, Snoop Dogg and Sade performing in Abu Dhabi last year, the line-up for 2012 promises to be equally exciting.
