Get ready for Wireless Festival’s epic Abu Dhabi return

The London-born festival returns to the capital on Saturday, 2 March 2024.

Brits will be familiar with Wireless, as the music festival has had headliners ranging from Kanye West to Rihanna. Wireless Festival Middle East is returning to the UAE in March 2024, promising to bring A-list acts to Abu Dhabi on Saturday 2, March.

Details about Wireless Festival Middle East 2024 are limited – there are no line-up or ticket prices yet, but judging from last year’s sold-out event, which saw 25,000 music fans descend on Etihad Park in Abu Dhabi, it’s expected to be a showstopper. The festival has attracted the biggest names in the music industry, with last year’s lineup featuring Travis Scott, Roddy Ricch, M.I.A., and Young Stunners. 

James Craven, President of Live Nation Middle East, stated, “Wireless Festival Middle East 2024 is poised to once again be a monumental event on the Abu Dhabi music calendar. We’re thrilled to bring the festival back for its second year, and we can’t wait to share the incredible lineup and experiences we have in store.”

Much like last year, Wireless Festival Middle East 2024 will feature two stages, ensuring continuous entertainment for revellers. The event will also feature extensive food and beverage options, immersive activations, and a range of engaging entertainment options.

Wireless Festival started life in London’s Hyde Park back in 2005, and has since taken place across the city in the Crystal Palace Park, Finsbury Park and the Olympic Park. Plus, it has taken place in Leeds and Birmingham, and outside of the UK in Frankfurt, Germany and Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates.

Over the years, Wireless Festival has created memorable musical moments. Drake booed the rain away, Prince Harry was once spotted in the crowd, Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne rolled above the crowd in an inflatable bubble, and Kanye West ranted for 20 minutes about creative freedom and Nike. 

Plus, while the line-ups are usually enough to get excited about, there are often surprise guests: Drake welcomed Nicki Minaj, Justin Timberlake brought out Jay-Z, and Jay-Z shared the stage with Rihanna.

If you can’t wait until next year, there are plenty of great concerts and festivals on the horizon. Dizzee Rascal, KISS and Robbie Williams are just some of the names set to perform in the UAE in the coming months.
