One of the biggest festivals in the Middle East, which was about to happen on March 2nd, 2024, had been cancelled for some reason this year. 

But don’t be sad—it’s still happening. The Abu Dhabi music festival has been delayed to November, and a new date and headliner will be announced very soon. Until then, you can follow their social handles and the official website to stay up-to-date with the yet-to-be-announced dates.

Wireless Festival in Abu Dhabi is coming back for its second year, and it’s set to be huge if last year’s event was anything to go by. In 2023, around 25,000 music fans showed up for the amazing music and epic encore, selling the event. Artists like Roddy Ricch, Travis Scott, M.I.A., King, and Young Stunners performed.

It’s an event with something for everyone, featuring hip-hop, rap, R&B, grime, dance, and more. 

Inspired by its wildly successful UK counterpart, the Wireless Festival in Abu Dhabi 2024 is set to deliver the same level of excitement, energy, and talent to the UAE. Fans can look forward to performances that light up the stage and create unforgettable memories.
