Music fans in Dubai, lend us your ears (and eyes). One of Europe’s biggest music festivals has announced a Dubai edition. UNTOLD festival, the massive music festival that runs out of Romania will be held in Dubai from February 15-18, 2024. The exact dates we’re just confirmed earlier today and the venue reminds the same – Expo 2020 is where UNTOLD Dubai will unfold.
This will be the popular music festival’s first Middle East outing. Its seven European editions are known to draw in wild crowds with over 375,000 festival-goers per edition. Dubai is expected to match those numbers with a total of 70,000 festivalgoers per day expected to attend the four-day gig. You can snap up early bird tickets on October 3 starting from AED 500 for a 4-day general access pass.
And why wouldn’t hundreds of thousands of musos flock to an event that boasts over 200 international artists? Including big names in electronic music DJs such as David Guetta, Martin Garrix, Tiesto, Alan Walker and Armin Van Buuren. This year’s UNTOLD Europe Festival saw performances by Imagine Dragons, Bebe Rexha, and British electropop band Years & Years.
Mainstream pop artists, rappers and bands such as Busta Rhymes, Black Eyed Peas, Robbie Williams and Ellie Goulding have also been previous headliners
Which artists are going to be performing in Dubai?
We hope everyone we’ve mentioned above does, but wishful thinking apart, the lineup for the inaugural Dubai concerts hasn’t been revealed yet. That said, we’re as sure as the sun rises in the east that Armin Van Buuren will perform at UNTOLD Dubai. The legendary Dutch DJ teamed up with Dubai Tourism and Expo 2020 for the big reveal at a record-breaking performance in Burj Khalifa.
The filmed announcement broke the world records for the highest performance atop the world’s tallest building and used the entire building as an LED backdrop for a show. The video of these impressive feats is a teaser for the electrifying production that UNTOLD festival Dubai is priming to be.

Everything else you can expect at UNTOLD Festival Dubai
It’s going to be big, bold and booming. UNTOLD has historically staged music festivals packed with lights, fireworks and laser shows besides the stellar music. Dubai’s no stranger to awesomeness so expect a music festival experience of epic proportions. As is the tradition of music festivals, UNTOLD is a multi-day event usually lasting four days. We’ll have to wait and find out how many days the Dubai event will span.
The festival’s also known to host family-friendly day experiences and then switch to nocturnal parties exclusive to grown-ups. Whatever the final agenda might look like, it’s evident UNTOLD festival Dubai will be one for the books. So block out your calendars for February 2024!
