Hip hop royalty will meet fresh international talents at the three day street culture festival…

The dates for Sole DXB were revealed last week, and now an exciting programme of music stars have also been revealed for the three-day street culture festival.

Taking place over three-nights and two days from December 6 to 8, the artist line-up features some top talents as well as emerging stars.

Performing in the UAE for the first time will be Queensbridge Rapper Nas, who will headline the main stage on Saturday December 8. The famously outspoken rapper has more than two decades experience releasing music, which has seen him nominated for 13 Grammys and produce 10 studio albums thus far. So, we’ve got some big expectations for his first UAE gig.

While on Friday December 7, adidas originals will present acclaimed rapper, Giggs. The British rapper released his first album Walk in da Park back in 2008, and went on to work with stars including Ed Sheeran, Styles P and Drake.

Also on the bill will be New York rapper and pioneering MC Roxanne Shante, and rap duo Lion Babe, made up of Lucas Goodman and Jillian Hervey, fresh from a performance at Coachella earlier this year.

They’ll be joined by Brit talent Slowthai, South African Sho Madjozi, saxaphonist Masego and singer DaniLeigh. Regional talents Chyno , Zenden Lavon, Reem Ekay and F1DEL will also perform across the festival, which is shaping up to be the strongest yet.

Tickets for Sole DXB which takes place at Dubai Design District are on sale now, with day passes starting at Dhs195 and weekend-long passes at Dhs295.
