DJ Mag Middle East conference cancelled

The two-day dance music conference hosted by DJ Mag on Yas Island has sadly been cancelled alongside the Ultra Abu Dhabi music festival.

It’s been a testing time for UAE events recently, with the UAE Tour cancelled and the Dubai International Boat show postponed until November.

And there’s more bad news, sadly, as the much-hyped DJ Mag Music Conference is now being postponed due to fears over the Coronavirus. The event was taking place at the W Hotel on Yas Island. But that hotel has been put into a temporary lockdown due to the Coronavirus.

A statement from the organisers says:

“Following the decision by the Department of Health – Abu Dhabi to place the W Abu Dhabi – Yas Island on temporary lockdown, we regret to inform you that the DJMag Conference due to take place on Tuesday 3rd and Wednesday 4th March 2020 will be cancelled.”

We will contact all ticket holders for refunds. If you have any queries, please email us at

Ultra cancelled

The DJ Mag Conference that has been cancelled was part of Abu Dhabi Music Week, which also involves Ultra Abu Dhabi. And Ultra has just announced that they’ve had to cancel their event as well.
