ABU DHABI FESTIVAL 2020 HEADLINE PROGRAMME POSTPONED
The 17th Abu Dhabi Festival joins with the Nation to celebrate ‘Towards the Next 50’.
As the United Arab Emirates approaches 50 years of achievement, we are unified by our values of respect, tolerance, mutual understanding and investing in our youth for a more successful, joyful nation.
The dynamic renaissance throughout the country can be witnessed through splendid new museums, world-class festivals and exhibitions, cultural institutions and an unquenchable quest for knowledge.
We celebrate our journey together, from our past at the renovated Abu Dhabi Cultural Foundation to the exciting future where Dubai’s Expo 2020 welcomes the world.
Abu Dhabi Festival commissions new works across the spectrum of art forms. From international performances which promote the culture of the Arab World and music releases encapsulating the best of regional music talent, to visual arts pieces that celebrate the depth of locally based practitioners, each year new work is brought to audiences in Abu Dhabi and across the world.
