RAKtopia reinvents emirate with music and wellness festival


RAKtopia, Ras Al Khaimah’s first music and wellness festival, is bringing people together with a shared passion for music, wellness, and art from October 22 to 23, 2022. Taking place at the picturesque Longbeach Campground, RAKtopia will offer selfcare seekers, beach lovers and festivalgoers a weekend getaway with relaxed vibes, interactive activities and captivating beats.

Where Ras Al Khaimah and Utopia meet, RAKtopia is a wellness festival designed to revitalize, inspire, and spark creativity and is the perfect place to connect with nature, body, and mind.

The exciting line-up of practitioners and performers include body movement awareness with RAKtopia Ambassador Allaoua Gaham; guided meditations with Sarah White; Pilates with Tamara Khoury; and jamming sessions with Charl Chaka.

Complementing the day programme is an impressive line-up of local DJs in addition to live artists who will co-create art to showcase the unique character and landscape of Ras Al Khaimah and host interactive ceramic and mandala workshops. Visitors can dance the night away with their feet in the sand and form lasting connections through music, art and nature as talented artists take them through an unforgettable experience of self-exploration.

Raki Phillips, CEO of Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority, commented: “As we continue to keep wellness and mental wellbeing at the forefront of our tourism strategy, RAKtopia is about nurturing communities and creating soulful connections. Through this co-creative experience, we aim to foster an inclusive space for ongoing wellness, expression, and self-exploration in the Emirate.”

Much-loved for its back-to-nature retreat vibes, Longbeach Campground serves as the ideal location for RAKtopia. Located along a 300-metre stretch of beach, the campground combines traditional camping with luxurious amenities and engaging activities – creating an immersive “glamping” experience. Perfect for families or friends, guests can stay in a variety of unique tent options and enjoy an all-inclusive activity package including access to the beach, pool, outdoor spa, water sports, a floating theatre, and more.
