One of the most breath-taking lantern festivals ever, RISE festival, has certainly made its mark in Las Vegas.

But now, the festival is making its way to Dubai for the first time later this year.

RiSE festival will be happening at an undisclosed location in the Dubai desert for a magical day-to-night experience. It all takes place on Friday November 8.

The family-friendly one day event will showcase a very exciting line-up of artists which will be announced very soon.

The Lantern Release

Over and above the beautiful beats, the gorgeous lantern release for which the festival has become famous for will take place.

Here’s a sneak peak of what guests can expect:

More than 100, 000 people have taken part in the release over the last five years.

The lanterns are all 100 percent biodegradable and will be retrieved from the surrounding desert following the event.

Where To Get Your Tickets

There isn’t any ticket information available just yet, but what you can do in the meantime is sign up to pre-register for early bird tickets at

This event is sold out every year since inception, so signing up is probably a good idea.


Speaking of the event, co-founder Dan Hill who is part of the festival says:

“People want unique and incredible experiences that leave them feeling refreshed and uplifted. That’s RiSE. RiSE creates great emotional connections between people. It champions tolerance and unity, and gives a voice to our hopes, dreams, goals and aspirations. RiSE shares so much in common with the vision of Dubai that we couldn’t think of a better place on earth to host our first international festival.”

Sounds like something to look forward to.
