The two-night desert rave features an electronic music line-up, tie-dye workshops, yoga, sound healing sessions and more…

If you’re familiar with Burning Man, the week-long music and wellbeing festival that takes place in the Nevada desert each year, then you’ll be interested to know that the UAE has its own version happening this month.

Dawaran launched in 2019 as a one night event and due to popular demand, it’s back this year even bigger and better. From Thursday February 20 to Saturday February 22, festival fans are invited to come and camp in the Ras Al Khaimah desert.

There’s several camping (and glamping options) although some are already sold out. The ‘Trippy Treehouse’ accommodation is priced at Dhs1,500 for two including a double bed, fan and balcony, or the ‘Dome Sweet Dome’ and ‘The Rococo Dome’ will see you camp in an igloo-style bedouin. You can also bring your own tent and make use of the camp site.
