A star-studded line-up of global and regional artists will headline Expo Dubai 2020, with Arabic singing sensation Kadim al-Sahir kicking off the spectacular Infinite Nights series on 15 October 2021.

Infinite Nights will thrill audiences both physically and digitally, uniting the world through the power of music with a host of celebrated artists performing live from Al-Wasl Plaza, with the concerts broadcast to a global audience.

These innovative 'phygital' show experiences, featuring cutting-edge entertainment technology, will see a number of world-class artists bring their unique energy, creativity, vision and values to the mega event, complementing the sub-themes of Opportunity, Mobility and Sustainability.

Al-Wasl Plaza, the beating heart of Expo Dubai 2020 and home to the world's largest 360-degree projection surface, will feature all the performances, while Expo ticket holders will also be able to watch the dazzling shows via giant screens at the Dubai Millennium Amphitheatre and Expo Jubilee Park.
Lubna Haroun, Vice President, Moment Makers Expo 2020 Dubai, said of the event series: "We are delighted to announce the Expo's Infinite Nights, a series of innovative and unique concerts featuring leading artists from around the world. These exciting and purposeful performances present the artists' unique musical perspectives on the themes of Expo 2020 Dubai in a global celebration of creativity, diversity and culture".

One of the most successful artists in the history of the Arab world, 'Caesar of Arabic song', Kadim al-Sahir will fly the flag for the entire region. Celebrating the first ever Middle East, Africa and South Asia World Expo (MEASA), he will honour the rich legacy of Arab music under the sub-theme Expo 2020 Opportunity, inspiring future generations as he performs his greatest classical and pop hits. The programme will be featured on expo2020dubai.com, Expo TV on YouTube and will be available worldwide through multiple channels.

Kadim al-Sahir was excited about his upcoming performance: "I am thrilled to be back in front of an audience after a two-year break, to open the Infinite Nights series from the heart of Expo 2020 Dubai. This is a wonderful opportunity to unite the world through music and song, and celebrate our achievements. I am honoured to be part of this incredible global event that will bring the world together and I promise it will be a great night".
