Dutch DJ and music producer Tiësto, whose most popular albums include ‘In My Memory’ (2001), ‘Just Be’ (2004), ‘Elements of Life’ (2007) and ‘The London Sessions’ (2020), has been a big hit among fans over the years. He was voted “The Greatest DJ of All Time” by ‘Mix’ magazine in a poll among fans more than a decade ago. In 2013, he was voted by ‘DJ Mag’ readers as the “best DJ of the last 20 years”.

US-based Ava Max is known for her unique sense of style and incredible vocals. Her breakthrough single, ‘Sweet but Psycho’, released in August 2018 and peaked at number one in 22 countries. The single ranked number two and number 10 on the Australian ARIA Charts and US Billboard Hot 100, respectively.

Shania Twain, who has sold over 100 million albums worldwide, spanning a 30-year illustrious music career, is the top-selling female country pop artiste of all time. With three consecutive diamond albums, the five-time Grammy Award winner heads to Abu Dhabi after a sold-out global tour in support of her latest album, 'Queen of Me'.

Founded in 1994, this will be the first time that the Foo Fighters, which has won 15 Grammy Awards, is performing in the UAE. Some of their famous albums include ‘The Colour And The Shape’, ‘There Is Nothing Left To Lose’ and ‘Medicine At Midnight’.
