Music Line Up

The biggest sports & entertainment festival in the Middle East comes with a mammoth live music line up across 3 days & nights, across 4 stages.

Global music artists for 2023

The first 2 artists jetting into Dubai this December have been confirmed as Artful Dodger and DJ Luck & MC Neat, who will both be bringing their chart topping legacy sets to Beats on 2 this year. 

Keep your eyes peeled for announcements as we reveal who will be headlining this year's festival, and the full 2023 festival line up. 


Frequency on 8 is Dubai 7’s headliner stage. Once the tournaments are done for the day, music fans and athletes will make their way over to Pitch 8 after dark to enjoy 2 nights of international music acts and DJs, rounding off that real festival-weekend experience.

In 2022 Craig David pulled out all the stops on the Frequency on 8 stage with his world renowned Craig David presents TS5 set to a crowd of 20,000. We’re ready to party into the night again this year with headliners confirmed for both the Friday and Saturday nights of the festival.

Beats on 2

Beats on 2 is one of the most unique places to watch rugby 7s in the world. With the HSBC SVNS matches taking place on Pitch 1 and Pitch 2, those in ‘Beats’ can enjoy world-class sport alongside the very best in music entertainment.

The Balearic influence and vibe of this outdoor raised bar makes it the perfect place to enjoy live music from international DJs and experiential cocktails with friends as the sun sets. 

Rugby Rocks & Heineken Tavern

An old favourite of the Emirates Dubai 7s. Party on both Friday and Saturday night with local and international tribute acts playing all the Emirates Dubai 7s anthems.

If Oasis, The Stones, Arctic Monkeys, and Guns & Roses are more your up your street than international DJs, then Rugby Rocks is the stage for you. Sing your heart out until the early hours with our stellar line up of guitar bands and tribute acts on these two stages.
