Live concerts are returning to Yas Island for Eid Al Adha


Summer is going to be brilliant, with a host of events set to return to the capital.

You already know about Disney On Ice, which is heading to Yas Island in September, not to mention two international comedians, the UK’s Michael McIntyre in July and Canada’s Russel Peters.

During Eid celebrations on the island, superstars from across the Middle East will descend on the capital to perform at unmissable concerts.

Regional superstars Assala, Hussain Al Jassmi, Tamer Hosny and Myriam Fares will perform at Etihad Arena on 22 and 23 July.

There will also be a three-day spectacular firework display over Yas Bay, starting on the first day of Eid Al Adha and which will be broadcast nightly at 9pm on the Yas Island Instagram channel.

The Summer #inAbuDhabi series will continue over the Eid holidays, offering an array of activities to keep residents and visitors entertained during the warmer months. 

The experiences include a series of shows, entertainment options, promotions, and prize giveaways across Abu Dhabi.



“We are thrilled to be bringing live concerts back again for the first time since March 2020, featuring the best and brightest regional superstars for our Eid Al Adha celebrations in Abu Dhabi,” said HE Ali Hassan Al Shaiba, Executive Director of Tourism and Marketing at DCT Abu Dhabi.

“The concerts by these talented performers, the amazing displays of fireworks lighting up the skies of our capital, as well as the diverse programme of activities during Summer #inAbuDhabi all reaffirm Abu Dhabi as an outstanding, all-inclusive travel destination.”
