RISE lantern festival is coming to Dubai
Ever heard of a festival devoted to launching hundreds of lanterns into the sky? Well, now you have.
RISE festival has sold out every year since it began in Las Vegas in 2014, and this year Dubai will experience its magic for the very first time on November 8.
Highly popular among everyone from families to social media moguls (because a desert sky full of beautiful lanterns makes for a pretty unbeatable Instagram photo), this event is not to be missed.
As you prepare to release your lanterns, a soon-to-be-announced line-up of incredible musicians will get you in the mood to sing, dance, or simply just relax in one of Dubai’s most breathtaking locations. (And for all of you eco-warriors out there, don’t worry – the lanterns are 100 percent biodegradable and will be retrieved from the desert upon completion of the event, so no damage done there.)
Precise information regarding destination and entry prices is under wraps for now, but make sure to head over to the RISE festival website to pre-register so you can nab tickets nearer the time.
