Experience the unforgettable fusion and friendship of the two cultures, as the beats of the biggest names come straight from the BAO Main Stage and echo to the corners of the world. Proud producer of BAO Festival is Envie, known from the biggest EDM festivals in the UAE, such as Sensation and UNITE With Tomorrowland.
