Due to the recent outbreak of the Coronavirus, Ultra Abu Dhabi has been canceled. This news comes to us from their local organizers and their homepage. Tickets will be refunded through the original point of purchase.

Not just Ultra, but many other events in the UAE are revising their outlooks. This global health threat is threatening large scale events and travel. Take a look at the important notice just issued online.

Two days ago, the event had no plans of cancelling. As the outbreak continues to spread worldwide, nothing should be left up to chance. The travel restrictions from multiple countries are preventing the ultimate Ultra experience, after all. Traveling far distances or surrounding yourself by effervescent ravers create harbingers for risk. The event’s number one priority is health and safety.

The highly anticipated lineup included Afrojack, Alesso, Cirez D, DJ Snake, Dash Berlin, and more. Their location would have taken over the largest open-air venue in the region. That is, Du Arena on Yas Island. One of the world’s fastest-growing leisure and entertainment destinations is getting a taste of the EDM scene. And we are so excited for it.

However, let’s not get too upset. Keep your eyes peeled for new dates coming soon. The fabulous location isn’t going anywhere. This necessary precaution is in the best interest of you. When it does come around, everyone will get to enjoy their favorite music in the pinnacle of luxury of the UAE.

The 2-day event boasts the world’s top electronic dance music artists on unparalleled stages. It is unfortunate that the inaugural music festival could not debut in the Middle East this year. But that means that festival organizers have time to make it even better.

We can’t let the coronavirus win against this community. The fight is on!
