It’s the region’s favourite arts and cultural weekend…

The season ahead is brimming with new restaurant openings, beach clubs (hello J1 Beach), hotels, and things to do. But, amongst all the shiny new, we’re pleased to announce the return of one of our favourite homegrown festivals…

Alserkal’s Quoz Arts Fest returns on Saturday, January 27 and Sunday, January 28, 2024 for its eleventh edition with all the art, culture, and mind-bending fun that you’ve come to expect from the fest along with incredible food, design, music, workshops, and a lot of surprises.

The annual two-day festival, which is returning to Alserkal Avenue, is a celebration of art, food, music, entertainment, and all-around good vibes.

For those who haven’t been to Quoz Arts Fest before, here’s a look at what went down last year:

Since its formation in 2012, Quoz Art’s Fest fuses art, food, live music, performances, and educational activations coverage. This festival acts as a platform for local and emerging artist to showcase their works as well as for individuals to engage with creative works and powerful performances, talks, and installations. Last year’s tenth edition saw major headliners, Arab stars Bu Kolthoum and Saint Levant perform at the two-day festival.

Tickets are free for those under 18 and above 60 with registration, with early bird tickets costing Dhs30.
