We have a lot of great places for a night out in Abu Dhabi, parties, live music and things to do. But can you really beat a great music festival? There’s the annual Yasalam after-race concerts and in the past Abu Dhabi has been the host for a number of other events including Creamfields, Tomorrowland and more. Now another massive dance festival is coming to the city and it promises to deliver a big weekend of music. Ultra Music Festival, founded in 1999 in Miami, Florida, is coming to the capital.

The outdoor festival has announced its UAE debut with a two day event taking place in the capital on Thursday March 5 and Friday 6 2020. The Abu Dhabi festival is part of the Ultra Worldwide franchise that has previously put on shows in South Africa, South Korea, Singapore, Brazil and Mexico. The venue, ticket prices and the acts performing in Abu Dhabi are still to be announced but we’re looking forward to seeing what’s coming when the event takes place next year. This year in Miami acts performing included Carl Cox, The Chainsmokers, Deadmau5, Marshmello, Martin Garrix, David Guetta, Afrojack and others.
