Block your calendar and keep the weekend of November 29th & 30th 2018 free as the BAO Festival is all set to descend over Meydan, Dubai. This exuberant event takes pride in hosting the top 2 artists of the DJ Mag top 100, MARTIN GARRIX and DIMITRI VEGAS & LIKE MIKE. Also adding massive weight to the line-up are AFROJACK, DON DIABLO, NERVO, R3HAB, ALOK, SALVATORE GANACCI, BROOKS, DANTE KLEIN, MARCUS SANTORO and DJ LICIOUS, all set to lead you on a voyage of their own.
It’s time to embark on a mesmerizing BAO journey at this one-of-a-kind two-day festival.
BAO is inspired by China’s greatest explorer Zheng He, who led seven voyages six centuries ago, amongst them one to the Middle East, in pursuit of treasures and riches (hence the name BAO – ‘treasure’). The tantalizing culture full of intrigue and mystery, found by the explorer, helped form an everlasting bond between the Far East & the Middle East.
This 2-day electronic music extravaganza at Meydan is a creation which revisits the past in order to unite the future. Experience the unforgettable fusion and friendship of the two cultures, as the beats of the biggest names come straight from the BAO Main Stage and echo to the corners of the world. Proud producer of BAO Festival is Envie, known from the biggest EDM festivals in the UAE, such as Sensation and UNITE With Tomorrowland.
BAO project creator Bingchen Li said: “I hope this event will bring happiness to all people, and those who join us can find their own treasures. These artists need no introduction, this is the biggest line up Dubai has ever seen on a two-day festival! BAO will create a musical journey like never experienced before here in the Middle East with the presence of the World’s best DJ’s at a single venue and a gigantic customized BAO stage. We strive to give music lovers an extraordinary experience that will transport them into a world that Dubai has never seen before.”
