The annual fiesta is already a huge hit in Dubai…

Does a day of watersports and soaking up the sun on a private island as you listen to top tunes spun by international DJs sound like your idea of an epic day out?

Well then Sunset Festival is for you. Already popular around the world, the music festival series is making its way to Abu Dhabi for the first time on Friday April 5 and Saturday April 6.

Taking place at Al Maya Island, the festival will see guests whisked away 9km by boat to the private island, which will be transformed into a festival space for the two-day event.

The white sandy beaches and Abu Dhabi skyline will serve as the perfect backdrop to the day-to-night event, which festival organisers promise to fill with an array of fun activities.

Tickets for the adults-only festival will be priced at Dhs125 each day, available to buy at Al Maya Island & Resorts, Abu Dhabi Jetty and Abu Dhabi Country Club. Ladies who arrive before 1pm can enjoy free entry.

Kicking off at 11am, guests can enjoy sports such as volley ball or paddleboarding, and there will be glitter make-up artists on hand to help guests nail their festival-ready look.

Later on there will be drumming master classes, fire dancers and a line-up of soon to be announced local and international DJs who will take to the stage as night falls.

See you on the sand.
