A total of 20 local, regional and international musicians representing unique sparks of creative talent in a wide range of instruments, genres and styles have joined this year’s festival.
The first day of the festival saw vast numbers of commuters and music lovers flocking to watch musical performances at five metro stations - Union, Mall of Emirates, Burjuman, Dubai Financial Centre, and Sobha Realty. The first day featured four unique performances at each station.

Participating musicians enthralled audiences with mesmerising performances featuring string, percussion, wind, acoustic and other unusual instruments, including ones made of recycled objects. Through celebrating diverse creative talent, the festival further strengthens Dubai’s position as an attractive hub for talent from across the world.”
