UAE's first mega-festival, UNTOLD, is coming to Expo City Dubai in 2024

Dubai is teaming up with Armin Van Buuren for country's biggest ever dance music extravaganza

UNTOLD, one of the biggest music festivals in the world, will bring a bill of headline DJs to Dubai, including world-renowned Armin Van Buuren, in February 2024. 

Held in Transylvania, Romania, UNTOLD Festival's European edition hosts more than 200 international artists annually and attracts a staggering 375,000 festival goers, which presents local travel agents with the opportunity to arrange flights, hotels and accompanying itineraries.

Past performers include Imagine Dragons, Robbie Williams, Major Lazer, J Balvin, The Prodigy, The Script, Jason Derulo, Ellie Goulding, G-Eazy, Busta Rhymes, Bastille, and Black Eyed Peas.


Part of Expo City's rebranding after hosting the Expo 2020 Dubai, the festival will be a key highlight on the 2024 events calendar. As well as residential neighbourhoods, events and conferences are a major part of the legacy of the site, which is now undergoing a radical transformation. 

Ahmed Al Khaja, CEO of Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment said: “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, and live and work in."
