Often hailed as the UAE’s largest celebration of African culture, the award-winning fest comes to you with new dates, but the names headlining the show are no newcomers to centre stage, something we’re sure fans of African entertainment in the UAE will nod at.

You can show up at prime time expecting global hitmakers, award-winning music and food, and a culturally immersive experience synonymous with the AAF to greet you at Etihad Park. This three-day celebration will celebrate diverse cultures from within Africa, bringing together resident capitalities and visitors at an experience that will have you immersing yourself in the best of pan-African cuisine, art and culture, and the unmistakeable vibrance and flair borne out of the second largest continent on the planet. Like Abu Dhabi is famous for, exhibits from UAE-based designers will also be displayed for you to enjoy and appreciate.

With the capital’s event landscape about to snowball to unprecedented proportions, we’re just as excited as you are about AAF, and all of the other exciting additions to the emirate’s booming entertainment calendar.
