From out of Africa straight into Abu Dhabi – a brand-new cultural carnival will be making its debut in the capital this weekend.
The first-ever Africa Fest UAE will be bringing a vibrant blend of live music, food and shopping to Sheraton Abu Dhabi Hotel & Resort, all in celebration of the continent’s rich influence on the world.
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.
