LOCATION MAP

Our events are held at Dubai Internet City Amphitheatre.
We are located between buildings 1 & 2 next to the lake.
Getting there by metro

The closest metro station is Nakheel Metro Station (University Station) (between Dubai Marina metro station and Dubai Internet City station). Take the exit towards Sheikh Zayed Road South (or seaside). Cross the American University car park and walk right on Al Assad Street. Then walk left on Al Marsad Street and right on Al Falak Street. Internet City Building 1 and 2 will be on your right hand side. Amphitheater is located behind them.

Getting there by Careem/Taxi (Get a free ride)

Yogafest has partnered with Careem to offer new users a free ride to our events. Just copy the promo code YOGAFEST and join today. For existing users, why not carpool, and split the fare using the “Share Fare” function in Careem, or by riding with a friend new to Careem for free.

Getting there by bus

The following busses stop at the bus stop near the amphitheater: 8, 83, 85 ,88, X28. All these buses can be reached from Nakheel Metro Station as well.

Getting there by car

Sheikh Zayed Road (exit 32) and Jumeirah Road are sign posted to drive to Dubai Internet City (or you can follow Dubai Media City). If you are coming along E44 Al Khail Road or E311 Mohammed Bin Zayed Road (Emirates Road), then take exit to Hessa Street West. We have also prepared from Google Map suggested driving directions from several starting points.

CONTRIBUTE

This season we are supporting Al Jalila Foundation and their Ta’alouf program.

Ta’alouf is Al Jalila Foundation’s flagship program that equips teachers and parents with knowledge and skills to better manage children with disabilities and special educational needs. Ta’alouf means ‘harmony’ in Arabic and brings this spirit to life by working in unison with strategic partners, parents, educators and the wider community to empower children of determination.
