Gerardo Llanes, Executive Director, Yas Island Destination Management said, “With ‘Spring Into Yas’, we’ve planned a diverse roster of vibrant and colourful events to delight people of every age, background and taste. Whether they’re here for a thrill, looking to chill, or a mix of both, our visitors will be able to enjoy a refreshing array of hands-on activities and captivating entertainment with their friends and family this spring.”

Setting its eye on Abu Dhabi, global phenomenon, Blue Man Group (BMG), is scheduled to host eight performances at the du Forum from April 18 – 22.
