New desert destination awaits you…

A first of its kind for Tomorrowland desert destination called Terra Solis will open in Dubai next month, bringing with it camping, glamping, dining and poolside partying. While the brand are yet to announce any festivals or artists as such, we do know to expect some major events when they do. For those unfamiliar, Tomorrowland is one of the biggest electronic dance music festivals in the world and while it would be extremely hopeful of us for a Tomorrowland Dubai, there might be smaller events taking place at the glamping site.
