Africa Fest UAE makes Abu Dhabi debut

From out of Africa straight into Abu Dhabi – a brand-new cultural carnival will be making its debut in the capital this weekend.

Revellers can embrace a whole new culture, with live sets from DJ Vinnie and VDJ Tribe, brilliant beats from African drummers Dubafrique and a performance from singer/songwriter MKO.

The festival, being held at Beachcomber, will also showcase food spanning the continent, plus there will be stalls dedicated to arts, crafts, jewellery and a fashion show.
