Twelve international and Dubai-based DJs, including Dutch legend Armin van Buuren, are lining up to give 2021 a special send-off at Expo 2020 Dubai on New Year’s Eve.

The roster also includes DJ Skip, Kanika Kapoor, Anyasa and Dimitri Vegas, who will all be playing at the Jubilee Stage.

Then DJ Tala Samman, DJ Jeff, DJ Khaled Mamdouh and DJ Fat Sam can be found at Dubai Millennium Amphitheatre, with DJ Hannah Ichiko, DJ Fuzzz and DJ Daxx at the Sports, Fitness & Wellbeing Hub.

Billed as the longest New Year celebration in the world, spanning the time zones of all participating countries at the event, the Expo festivities will take place at various locations across the site over a 13-hour period.

Dutch DJ Armin van Buuren, King of Trance, will channel Jubilee Stage’s late night/early morning energy and will round off proceedings from 1:30 a.m. to 4:00 a.m. GST with his trademark blend of uplifting, progressive and psychedelic trance, with electro house and dance-pop thrown in for good measure.

Entry to all of the New Year’s Eve DJ sets is free for Expo 2020 ticket holders, but visitors are advised to arrive early.
