It’s the city’s favourite arts and culture festival…

Quoz Arts Fest returns for its tenth edition next year on Saturday, January 28 and 29, 2023 at Alserkal Avenue. For its milestone event, the popular festival is bringing a diverse line-up of music, art, contemporary dance and performing arts to Dubai so it’s one you don’t want to miss.

Bu Kolthoum and Saint Levant are headlining the event and they are just one of the top reasons you will want to snap up tickets for the event. The two musicians are currently rising in popularity, paving the way for Arab music in the global sphere.

A weekend filled with music, art, culture and love…

Saint Levant, aka Marwan Abdelhamid, is regarded as an Arab diaspora breakout star. He is a Palestinian, French, and Algerian musician who was born in Jerusalem and now calls Los Angeles home. He draws inspiration from important Arab intellectuals for his music, which combines French, Arabic, and English. Saint Levant will be performing on Saturday, January 28.

Alongside Saint Levant is Bu Kolthoum, aka Mohammed Mouneer, who is known for his soulful and funky flare. As a songwriter, rapper and singer, this Syrian artist uses his music as an outlet to share his deeply personal experiences of injustice, loss and struggle. Bu Kolthoum will be performing on Sunday 29, 2023.
