Azimuth Festival returns to AlUla this September

Save the date…

It’s official. After a hugely successful event in 2022, Azimuth returns this September in the dreamy AlUla desert. The festival will run from Thursday September 21 to Friday September 22, presenting a celebration of East and West through music, art and experience.

We are awaiting the music line-up and ticketing details, which organisers have said will be announced soon. So, prepare to look forward to notable acts from local music names, renowned regional artists, DJs, and plenty of art activations.

One of the highlights of the Azimuth Festival has always been the remarkable sunset and sunrise sets, which will undoubtedly provide some dazzling moments for festivalgoers.

And as always, the event is perfectly timed over the Saudi National Day holiday. Since this year’s holiday falls on Saturday September 23, residents will be able to make the most of the weekend and cooler temperatures by jetting into AlUla for a weekend of music, art and dining. However, we expect the line-up and gorgeous desert landscapes will draw an international crowd, too, of course.

The 2022 edition of Azimuth revolved around its sunrise and sunset events. Guests could also chill out between shows and enjoy their surroundings, with a range of tasty pop-up restaurants, interesting shops and wellness and art events. International headliners at last year’s festival included Damian Lazarus, DJ Snake and Parov Stelar.

We can’t wait to see who will join the line-up for the third edition of Azimuth this year, so watch this space for more updates.
