Our birthday gift to you…

All together now, “Happy birthday to us…”

That’s right, this June, What’s On turns 45. And while many things have changed since our first issue came out in 1979: entire islands built, a population increase ten fold, a vast desert transformed into a thriving multicultural metropolis – our passion to bring you the very best of the emirates has never wavered.

But we thought we’d do something extra special as we celebrate a landmark birthday. Because without you, our loyal readers, we wouldn’t be here, 45 years and 555 issues later. So to celebrate 45 years of What’s On, we introduce 45 days of epic giveaways.

From June 1 until July 15, every day we’ll be bringing you a new opportunity to snap up an epic prize. From brunches to beach days, theatre tickets to staycays, we’ve got daily giveaways for some of the hottest happenings in the emirates this summer. Just head to whatson.ae/weare45 for the latest prizes.

The fine print

You can enter all competitions from the day of publication until July 31, 2024 – unless otherwise specified. All competition prizes are valid until September 30, 2024.

Good luck!
