The curtain falls on the Dubai Metro Music Festival


For seven days, five metro stations – Expo 2020, Jebel Ali, Mall of the Emirates, Burjuman and Union – served as stages for performances that added new creative energy to Dubai’s urban spaces and highlighted the spirit inclusive of the city, cosmopolitanism and openness. The performances also demonstrated the power of music as a universal language to go beyond cultural and national differences, to bring people together.

The festival was held as part of the ongoing #DubaiDestinations campaign focused on showcasing the outstanding experiences, events and activities of #DubaiArtSeason.

Musicians from a wide range of nationalities, including Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Ecuador, Egypt, India, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, France, Indonesia, Mexico, the Philippines, Portugal, South Africa, Trinidad and Tobago and Syria, excluding the United Arab Emirates, entertained audiences with their musical performances featuring strings, percussion, winds and other unusual instruments.

Large numbers of commuters flocked to subway stations to watch performances featuring innovative instruments and offbeat musical styles from both traditional and non-traditional musical genres.

The initiative is part of a series of joint projects undertaken by Brand Dubai in partnership with RTA to celebrate culture, art, creativity and aesthetic appreciation in the city.
