Soundtrack to the summer: Yas Island extends record-breaking ‘Stayin’ On Yas’ campaign to Spotify
Three Spotify ‘staylists’ for a spectacular Yas Island staycation launched, paying tribute to the Bee Gees-inspired summer anthem
Mumbai, August , 2021: Yas Island Abu Dhabi, one of the world’s leading leisure and entertainment destinations, has announced a collaboration with Spotify as part of the Stayin’ on Yas campaign, which has taken the internet by storm.
Inspired by the Bee Gees classic Stayin’ Alive, the new summer anthem Stayin’ on Yas campaign encourages staycationers and vacationers to ‘break like you mean it’, and features three holiday-makers channeling the Bee Gees on a staycation like no other as they experience the wide range of activities on Yas Island in style.
Following the launch of the retro-style music video which has been viewed more than three million times on Yas Island’s Instagram account and over a million times on its YouTube account, Yas Island has partnered with Spotify to launch three playlists, styled as Yas Island ‘staylists’, providing the ultimate soundtrack to a holiday on Yas Island.
Chilled out staycationers can select the tunes to accompany their Yas Island break from Chillin’ on Yas which features laid-back vibes such as Quiet Waves by All Day Island and Sun & Buns by Duo on Mars. For those seeking to get the party started, Kool & The Gang, Earth Wind & Fire and Sister Sledge provide the soundtrack for Groovin’ on Yas, whilst those who simply can’t get enough of Stayin’ on Yas, can have summer’s new anthem on repeat.
Setting the perfect soundtrack for a staycation on Yas Island, the new Spotify ‘staylists’ celebrate everything holidaymakers seek during a staycation and more; from record-breaking theme parks, racing, climbing and flying to world-class shopping, dining, golfing and luxury hotels, all packed into one 25 km2 destination
