In light of recent developments in respect to COVID-19 we have taken the difficult decision to postpone the Dubai Lynx Festival. As a festival, our priority is absolutely the safety of our attendees, delegates and team. We are going to reschedule the festival to 6-9 September 2020.
Please note that all entries will be valid for the new festival dates along with passes and awards seats purchased. We will keep you updated with further information.
