Oh May May: Top things to do this month in Dubai!

Although we love the Dubai sunshine, those summer nights (well-a, well-a, well-a, huh!) are fast approaching.

Which means for some of us it’s just a little too hot to be able to enjoy the great outdoors - without melting into a puddle!

Fear not, as throughout May, florals will continue blossoming and just like the season, the city will be blooming too with a host of exciting events.

We’ve rounded up the top events and things to do in Dubai that you could check out this month.

So, let’s get right into it!

Channel your inner Disney princess

Do you believe in magic?

Well Disney’s most iconic princesses are coming to the desert from May 5th to May 7th with a promise to make all your dreams come true!

Head on over to the Dubai Opera for some Disney magic, where Broadway performers will be coming together to put on a spectacular show alongside the Firdaus Orchestra.

Tickets are available from Dhs150.

So, grab your little ones (or your friends!) and head down for a fun-filled night full of sparkle!

Hey you

Ok, if you’re a Pink Floyd fan, this might make you feel a little old but it's been fifty years since the release of ‘The Dark Side of the Moon’!

Can you believe it?

Well get this, Dubai Opera is hosting a tribute act who are set to play all of their top bangers whilst supported by a visual experience of the band themselves. Meaning you can be transported back to the good old days!

Backstreets back alright!

After their last house-full performance in 2018, they’re back in the country for another exciting performance and you can boogie to their top tracks from the 90s such as Shape Of My Heart and I Want it That Way.

Tickets range from AED 245 to AED 845.

Metallica your heart out!

If the Backstreet Boys aren’t really your bag, could Metallica be more up your street?

Head down over to Phileas Foggs as Metallica's official cover band is set to perform a killer set! They’ll be blazing the top-hits on the stage at The Arena on Saturday May 13!

Tickets start from AED 120, with silver tier standing priced at AED 165 and front seat viewing from AED 220 in the Golden Circle!
