Love the feeling of sand beneath your feet? Love pumping tunes from mega DJs and the blinding lights from a mahoosive stage?
Sounds like you’d love an all-night EDM festival on the beach then. Funnily enough, we’ve found a belter for you to head to next weekend, as Destination Dawn, one of the country’s biggest festivals, returns for another edition of the biannual bash on Friday April 6.
This time the famous party – which runs from 5pm until 5am over on Al Marjan Island – will be bringing in massive acts Dash Berlin and Ummet Ozcan, alongside Dubai-based British DJ duo Hollaphonic.
You can hop on a bus (there are loads of free runs going from Manara Centre Parking outside Noor Bank Metro) which will run from 5pm until 7pm up to RAK on Friday 6, and returning between 2am and 5am on Saturday 7.
Once you get there, you can do one of two things, really. You can either bring your own tent, knock out at some point and get some rest – or you can power through partying and get some shut eye on the bus home. Camping spots are available for Dhs50.
It’s only a 45 minute journey out from Dubai, so for a big night on the beach with a cracking set of DJs, don’t miss this.
Tickets are available from Dhs100 for early-bird tickets (while available), and go up to Dhs250 on the door. Tickets can be bought online at www.destinationdawn.com.
From Dhs100. Fri Apr 6, 5pm-5am. Al Marjan Island, Ras Al Khaimah, www.destinationdawn.com
