Destination Dawn back in RAK on May 12

12-hour beach party features Black Eyed Peas’ Taboo plus Juicy.M

Destination Dawn, the 12-hour beach festival up at Ras Al Khaimah, is back for 2017. Taking place on Al Marjan Island, headliners this year include Taboo from the Black Eyed Peas, plus Juicy.M.

Kicking off at 5pm on Friday May 12, Taboo and Juicy.M will be supported by DJ JadH, DJ KMRN, electro-dance combo Hollaphonic, and DJ Umut Ilkaya, who will be closing the show at 5am.

And if you were thinking about the journey home at five in the morning, you don’t have to worry, because there’s going to be a dedicated camping area – so bring your own tent and get 40 winks before heading back the next day. There are 100 camping spots available, so book ahead and arrive early to pitch up and chill before the night rolls in.

Travelling from Dubai? Not planning on staying the night? There’s a free bus from Manara Center Parking next to Noor Bank Metro Station on Sheikh Zayed Road, leaving every 20 minutes between 4pm-7pm on May 12, and returning from Al Marjan Island every 20 minutes between 2am and 5am.
Dhs150 per person, Dhs50 for camping. 5pm-5am Fri May 12. Al Marjan Island, Ras Al Khaimah.
