This music festival’s list of legendary musicians, Grammy award winning artists, critically acclaimed jazz and contemporary groups, and pop sensations covers of 50 years of music history.

If jazz and shopping don’t spark your interests Dubai is also home to the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships, Rugby 7’s and Dubai World cup. A way to enjoy some exciting matches and see your favorite athletes.

Dubai also has the Dubai Food Festival. This is an event made by foodies, for foodies. It is the perfect place to really “taste Dubai” and all the best cuisine it has to offer. The event brings together all the best in food, drink and music, as well as celebrity chefs and cooking workshops.
