Dubai: Get ready for the highly anticipated return of Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF) — with organisers Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment (DFRE) confirming new dates for the 29th annual edition.

Running from December 8, 2023 to January 14, 2024, the DSF promises to deliver an exceptional season of bigger, better, and out of this world experiences and entertainment for everyone, in every corner of the city, throughout its awe inspiring 38 days of adventure and discovery.

DFRE on Wednesday also gave a sneak peek of some of the treats in store, with an electrifying musical event featuring two of the Arab world’s most iconic artists. Ahlam Alshamsi and Assala Nasri will take to the stage for a live, one-night-only performance at the Coca-Cola Arena on 15 December 2023.

Among the highlights, other eagerly anticipated events in the calendar include the popular lifestyle and street-culture festival Sole DXB, returning this year with a vibrant line-up of live performances to celebrate 50 years of Hip Hop — and now part of DSF for the first time.
