Gear up to revive the 90s as the biggest hip-hop and RnB stars of that era come together for a packed, one day event, at the inaugural ‘Sunset Music Festival’ in Zayed Sports City. Taking place on 21st October 2016, the festival is set to be one of the music events of the year and will feature some of the biggest performers from the decade.


Three 90s icons will be joined by current musical acts over seven hours, from 4pm to 11pm, and uniquely fans will have access to each of the multiple headlining artists all under the price of one ticket, offering exceptional value for money to make it truly a must-attend event in Abu Dhabi.

Visitors are encouraged to bring their own blankets and relax on the grass with friends and family - all while enjoying great music in a memorable atmosphere where ‘dreams can come true’. With cooler October temperatures, Zayed Sports City is organising the concert on the festival lawn, the perfect open-air venue for such an exciting event so ‘free your mind and join us’.

Barry Bremner, the General Manager of Zayed Sports City said: “We are very excited to present the first edition of Sunset Music Festival and with it, provide a new way for people to enjoy music in the capital. This multi-artist concert will fill a gap in the current market, delivering a festival experience with a popular format. We’re lining up fantastic performers to play the music people loved in the 90s and surrounding it with an affordable, fun, relaxed and social atmosphere. This inaugural event is not to be missed.”

Sunset Music Festival will announce the artist line up in September and will transport visitors to a time when Doc Martins were a wardrobe staple and scrunchies were cool!
