It might feel like ages away, but the UAE’s first big New Year’s Eve event has just been announced – and it sounds like it’s going to be epic.

Promising a line-up of  music, entertainment and activities for the whole family to ring in 2020, ticket prices have not yet been revealed, but pre-registration is now open via this link.

The festival will kick off with Resolution by Night on New Year’s Eve, and is set to bring “an internationally acclaimed, multi-award-winning artist” to du Arena. Although the artist is still yet to be announced, previous du Arena New Year’s Eve headliners have included Katy Perry and Coldplay, so we can’t wait to see who gets announced this year.
