The capital’s annual calendar of live entertainment returns for its fourth year, starting July 20
This year’s edition of Summer Season, the month-long entertainment festival in Abu Dhabi, will feature theatrical performances, stand-up comedians, a Bollywood concert, kids’ TV show characters and more.
Summer Season is set to run from July 20 to August 20 and will host events in the city of Abu Dhabi, plus Al Ain and Al Dhafra in the Western Region.


Several acts were confirmed at a press conference on Saadiyat Island today, including a Broadway-style Bollywood show called Balle Balle The Big Fat Indian Wedding, plus a Tom And Jerry theatrical show. Also, there’ll be a performance in the city’s malls by characters from the TV series Iftah Ya Simsim (the Arabic version of Sesame Street, pictured below).


While the name of the artist has yet to be revealed, a world-famous Bollywood star is set to perform at the du Forum on August 18, in part to mark India’s 70th independence day. It’s a similar situation with the stand-up comedy: the name of the joker who will be performing in the capital is yet to be announced.
More details on the line-up are expected in the next few weeks and there will also be raffle draws in the city’s malls, with cars and hotel stays up for grabs as prizes, taking place throughout the festival.
