One of the world's biggest dance festivals is opening a new desert destination in Dubai.

Belgian electronic dance festival Tomorrowland is launching Terra Solis, a festival-inspired escape that will open in September bringing poolside beats, day-to-night parties and exclusive events to the emirate.

Open to adults only, the new getaway will be held over 371,000 square metres at Dubai Heritage Vision on Lehbab Road, less than half an hour's drive from Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building.

With glamping tents, an infinity pool, live DJs and desert sunsets, the pop-up destination is set to add a whole new level of entertainment to Dubai's dunes during its first season, which will run until July 2023.

Much of the action will be centred around the oasis-like pool where the resort's resident DJs will create daytime soundtracks and night-time party beats.

Surrounded by towering palm trees, sunbeds and private cabanas, this is also where guests can enjoy poolside eatery Mesa, the resort's all-day dining space. A Mediterranean menu, infused with flavours from all over the world, will be available from sunrise to after dark.

Sala will be the place to go for sundowners and sunset sessions. Refreshments, light bites and shisha will be on the menu at this cosy escape, where guests can drink in endless desert views.

Perseid queen lodges come with a mini sundeck, a queen-size bed and a private bathroom, with rates from about Dh1,400 per night.
