A new beach festival will run alongside the FIFA World Cup

Qetai-Fan Beach Fest will host concerts and stream matches in Qetaifan Island North.

If all the upcoming sporting action at the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 wasn’t enough, details about a beachfront entertainment festival that will run simultaneously have been unveiled. The result of Qatar-based UVentures and Qetaifan Projects joining forces, Qetai-Fan Beach Fest will be held at Qetaifan Island North in the new city of Lusail, which is located north of Doha. Expected to operate from early in the morning until late at night, it will allow guests to enjoy a variety of hospitality services, activities, food and beverage, retail outlets, and live music performances.

The festival will be a unique entertainment area in Qatar, with direct beach access and a license to operate catered music events – all designed to merge local, regional and international cultures. Naturally, music will play a central role, with resident musicians and artists during the day, coupled with concerts and special performances by both world-renowned and rising artists.

“We are thrilled to put our vision into action ahead of the most eagerly awaited event in the world. Qetai-Fan Beach Fest powered by Unit-Y is a first-of-its-kind entertainment concept that is meant to take the fan experience to a different level in Qatar. With the support of our partners and supporting stakeholders as well as the relentless efforts of our team, we will be bringing a holistic and historical entertainment experience to life, where all fans from all walks of life can gather to create memories and exchange cultures through the universal language that music provides,” said Sheikh Nasser Bin Abdulaziz Al Thani, Head of Business Development of Qetaifan Projects.

To support the mobility challenges, Qetai-Fan Beach Fest will provide fans with numerous transportation services to access the festival from different points of interest in the country, with three different access routes to arrive and depart from Qetaifan Island North. All transport access routes will operate from morning until evening. Official tickets for Qetai-Fan Beach Fest will be released in the coming weeks in tandem with the reveal of musicians and other performing artists. The beach festival will also include VIP sections sponsored by a select group of ambassador brands to offer corporate clients and other guests bespoke experiences and hospitality services.
