Abu Dhabi's premier street meet Urban Buildz is coming back to the capital at the end of October.

As before, the centrepiece of the event will be the 350 modified vehicles slotted to be on show, and these will sit alongside exhibition and car club stands, as well as motoring workshops.

There will be the obligatory competitions, with entrants vying for the Urban Buildz Champion title amongst others.

Entertainment is key to the mix, with car audio competitions, DJ battles, breakdancing contests, as well as live music.

This year, organisers are holding a Halloween party on Thursday, October 31, with a Dh20,000 prize for the best costume.

The 2018 event attracted 2,500 visitors, and organisers are hoping for a significant upsurge in numbers this year.

Urban Buildz is at Abu Dhabi City Golf Club from October 31 to November 1. The event is open from 10am to 10pm, and admission is Dh200.
