Tickets are on sale now for the festival’s tenth edition.

It’s time to paint the town. Now in its tenth edition, Quoz Arts Fest takes place on 28 and 29 January. Celebrating the region’s arts and culture, it takes place across Alserkal and Al Quoz. The event showcases live music, art, contemporary dance, performing arts, food trucks, art installations and wellness. With a whopping 200 activations and 50 creative concepts, it’s jam-packed with entertainment. 

This year’s Quoz Arts Fest theme is Shift Away, which creates three fantastical worlds. Visitors will be able to enter portals including Shift to Nature, which challenges the perception of scale; Shift to Cyborg, which explores the digital universe; and Shift to Childhood, which lets you unleash your inner child.

This year’s musicians include UAE talent The Tasty Biscuits, Bornean-Australian rapper Omar Musa, and Dubai-based DJ Patchoulee as well as Big Hass. Bu Kolthoum and Saint Levant will be performing in the country for the first time. Plus, Qouz Encore includes performances from homegrown music acts including Lama, Stefan Alm, Jiire Smith, Ramzinho, Kinda, Seaside Feels, and A^2—ar.

Quoz Arts Fest

Quoz Arts Fest brings together an exciting line-up of exhibitions from established and emerging artists. Mutek’s data-driven interactive installation raises awareness of climate change. Iregular, a Montreal-based digital art studio, creates an interactive and immersive experience.

Bringing together the best of the Al Quoz community, there will also be pop-ups from The Courtyard, Aisha Alabbar, Trezora, Cabinet of Curiosity, Antique Boutique x Book Club, Raw Coffee Company and Woo-hoo.

A sucker for a good story, if you invite Kohinoor to a gallery, comedy night, new restaurant, hiking trip, cycle ride, pool day or just about any activity, preferably with the promise of wine, she’ll probably say yes – that is if she isn’t busy planning her next adventure.
