The 29th edition of the annual Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF) is set to return, promising to be bigger and better than ever before. Organized by the Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment (DFRE), the highly anticipated shopping extravaganza will take place from December 8, 2023, to January 14, 2024.
One of the highlights of this year’s festival is an electrifying musical event featuring two of the Arab world’s most iconic artists, Ahlam Alshamsi and Assala Nasri. They will grace the stage for a live, one-night-only performance at the Coca-Cola Arena on December 15, 2023.

Sole DXB, the region’s most celebrated youth and contemporary culture festival, gears up for its 2023 edition returning from 8 December to 10 December with the release of its presale weekend passes and as the first event in the Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF) calendar, which runs from December 8, 2023 to 14 January 2024.
Returning to Dubai Design District (d3), its strategic partner and part of TECOM Group PJSC, the festival has joined forces with Nas backed record label and entertainment Company, Mass Appeal, as their official partner for Hip Hop 50 in the Arab world. Following last year’s impressive turnout of 35,000+ fans, Sole DXB is poised to welcome record-breaking numbers to this year’s show.

The festival is also introducing Stage Front passes, a brand new category which will afford fans access to the entire weekend, but more importantly, the pass will include memorable opportunities to experience their favourite artists up close and personal.
Additionally, General Access weekend passes will be available to purchase at presale rates for a limited time only.
For the eco-conscious, Dubai Shopping Festival will feature the Earthsoul Fest, catering to those who prioritize sustainability and responsible consumerism.

Additionally, DSF will host a series of concerts featuring headline artists, including Kazim Al Saher, Omar Khairat, Najwa Karam, George Wassouf, and Majid Al Mohandis, with more surprises yet to be unveiled.
DSF continues to be a celebration of the very best that Dubai has to offer, providing a diverse range of entertainment, shopping, and cultural experiences for visitors during its 38-day run.
