DCT Abu Dhabi, in partnership with Dubai-based producer, organiser and promoter, Envie Events, connected more than 400,000 music lovers on Saturday July 28th, as revellers in du Forum, Yas Island were linked up via a live satellite connection to Belgium and beyond when the much-anticipated global EDM festival UNITE With Tomorrowland returned to the UAE.

Six other locations across the globe were also connected to the Tomorrowland main stage in Belgium, with Italy, Malta, Spain, Taiwan, Mexico and Lebanon also enjoying the world-renowned dance extravaganza.

Protec was called on by Envie Events to deliver audio, lighting, video, scenic, staging and rigging solutions for what can only be described as probably the most elaborate festival on earth in terms of satellite technology.


The responsibility was on Protec  to ensure a seamless connection to the other global sites as well as visually synchronising the aesthetic of the event.

Director of Envie Events, Barry Pavic, reflected on working alongside Protec again on what was another successful Unite with Tomorrowland:

“Our goal is to bring people from all walks of life, countries, backgrounds and unite them as one with the power of music. That is exactly what UNITE with Tomorrowland did once again and we are very happy with the feedback. It is with the help of strong partners like Protec, and many others, that have made this concept such a huge success in the UAE.”
