Some of the Arab world's most beloved performers will take to the stage this 'Eid in Dubai' for extra special and star studded live concerts, with audiences experiencing amazing renditions of timeless songs alongside the latest chart hits, while also raising much needed funds to aid some of the region's most vulnerable children.
Presented by Dubai Summer Surprises (DSS), the glamorous Dubai Opera shows are the first live concerts by Arabic performers in Dubai since Covid-19 lockdown restrictions were lifted across the city. Two of the most eagerly awaited live events of the year so far, the shows have sparked huge excitement among fans of Middle Eastern music of all ages.

The concert is an opportunity for Arabic music lovers to indulge their passion for classic songs, contemporary hits and to support youngsters whose lives have been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic, as all proceeds from the concert will aid UNICEF's #Reimagine campaign.
Al Jassmi and Yara's one-night-only charity show is part of the Eid Al Adha celebrations and is hosted by 'Eid in Dubai' and MBC Hope. Appearing alongside Al Jassmi and Yara will be some of the best young singers from the popular regional talent series, 'The Voice Kids', performing a selection of the latest songs from the hit show.
