Ras Al Khaimah is known for its sandy beaches and rocky mountains. In October, residents will flock to this destination for another reason: the city’s first RAKtopia festival.
RAKtopia is the emirate’s premier music and wellness festival bringing together wellness experts, music makers and immersive artists. It takes place over two days on October 22 and 23 at the scenic Longbeach Campground.
The Wellness Festival is designed to revitalise, inspire and stimulate creativity and will be the perfect place to connect with nature, body and mind. With events taking place on the beach, festival goers can enjoy a fun weekend filled with relaxed atmospheres, interactive activities and captivating beats.
Here’s what you can expect
For those looking for something new, RAKtopia Ambassador Allaoua Gaham, an experienced yogi, will present a yoga and breakdance workout that helps gain more body awareness, and Systema, a form of martial arts that emphasizes physical, mental and spiritual well-being.
There will be guided meditations with Sarah White, pilates with Tamara Khoury – a personal trainer specializing in HIIT and cardio pilates, and for a jamming session, Charl Chaca will have you dancing your way to wellness.
As the sun sets, the vibe comes alive with popular DJs who will take festival-goers on a musical journey through the world of electronic music. The DJs who have been confirmed so far are NU, known for their creative mix of dance, tribal and energetic sounds, Argentinian electronic music DJ LUM and 2Third – one of the most dynamic musical duos in the region.
Visitors can dance the night away with their feet in the sand and form lasting connections through music, art and nature, while talented performers take them on an unforgettable experience of self-exploration.
As well as watching live artists create their masterpieces before your eyes, there will also be interactive ceramic and mandala workshops. The mandala is known to induce therapeutic effects due to its fine repetitive movements, so it’s a must if you want to relax.
Early bird tickets are currently available and are priced at Dhs 350 for day 1 and Dhs 180 for day 2. A package will cost you Dhs 400. If you lose the price of early registration, it will be 450 Dhs for the two days.
Want to stay at the popular Longbeach campsite? Early bird packages with an overnight stay at Longbeach Campground for two and 2-day festival passes are available from Dhs 1,345 per couple.
