Festival Description

The three-day Omani song festival is aimed at engendering awareness and promoting the sultanate’s rich musical and cultural heritage in the region and beyond. The festival is organized by Oman’s Ministry of Heritage and Culture as per the directives of His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said and takes place at the Al Bustan Palace Hotel. This festival showcases Oman’s unique heritage and culture through the arts—music, song and poetry.
