Dubai is welcoming a brand-new music festival. The world-renowned UNTOLD will take place at Expo City Dubai. Scheduled for February 2024, UNTOLD Dubai will boast a stellar line-up of international live acts and DJs, and it’s launching in spectacular style.

UNTOLD Dubai has been created in partnership with Dubai’s Department of Economy and Tourism and Expo City Dubai. The festival aims to revolutionise entertainment and welcome big-name acts to the city. Plus, it will include lights, fireworks, laser shows and a record-breaking event.

As the music festival launches in Dubai, UNTOLD has joined forces with two icons: the Burj Khalifa and DJ Armin van Buuren. The pair aim to break two world records, as they will not only host the highest performance at the top of the world’s tallest building, but also use the entire building as a LED backdrop.

DJ Armin van Buuren explained: “There’s an unbelievably strong connection between myself, UNTOLD festival and its fans. I don’t think I’ve ever felt as alive as I do on stage at UNTOLD, and that makes this upcoming show at UNTOLD Dubai incredibly exciting. I’m thrilled to be playing atop the Burj Khalifa and look forward to breaking two world records by doing what I love the most: playing music to all the fans that are so precious to me.”

Ahmed Al Khaja, CEO, Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment, added: “Hosting events like UNTOLD at Expo City Dubai is the perfect way to demonstrate the city’s capability to host mega events, further reinforcing its position as an international events hub in line with the ambition of our visionary leadership to make Dubai the best city in the world to visit, live and work in.”

UNTOLD started back in 2015, and has hosted seven editions in Europe. If past festivals are anything to go by, we’re expecting a FOMO-inducing event. Previous line-ups have included Black Eyed Peas, Busta Rhymes, Bastille, Ellie Goulding, Imagine Dragons, Jason Derulo, Major Lazer, Robbie Williams, The Prodigy and The Script. Plus, DJs have included Armin Van Buuren, Avicii, Afrojack, David Guetta, Dimitri Vegas, Eric Prydz, Martin Garrix, Steve Aoki, Marshmello and Tiesto.
