It’s almost that month of the year again, and this time you can celebrate all things Deutsch on Yas Island. The du Forum (the rather nice new tented arena close to Yas Marina Circuit) is the new venue for the Oktoberfest event, which was formerly held at Stills bar at the Crowne Plaza.
You can look forward to authentic hops brew provided by Hofbräuhaus plus prepare to limber up ready to dance to the traditional Bavarian band direct from Munich. Tickets go on sale on Monday 9 September. Celebrity fans of the official event, which is held annually in Germany, include Kim Kardashian, who went in 2010 and even wore the traditional outfit! That event attracts a massive six million people.
