A massive new music, food, art and fashion festival is coming to Dubai, and it’s promising to be one of the biggest weekends of the winter so far.
Hot off the heels of Sole DXB announcing its return to Dubai for the first weekend of December (Thursday 5 until Saturday 7), the following weekend will see FIVE Palm Jumeirah Dubai launch a first-of-its-kind three-day lifestyle festival.
Luvya Festival will take place on Thursday December 12, Friday 13 and Saturday 14 at the luxury Palm Jumeirah Hotel, with live music performances slated across the entire weekend, and an enormous main stage area being constructed on the hotel’s private, 150-metre beach.
That’s not to mention the nine catwalks set to be built around the hotel to showcase the latest fashion trends, while art installations will showcase local and international artists.
International artists are expected to be jetting in for the event, which so far has got massive names already confirmed including Disciples, Craig David, Lost Frequencies, Klingande and Eli & Fur.
There’ll be a second stage set up at Time Out Dubai’s Bar of the Year – The Penthouse. Aforementioned Klingande and Eli & Fur will be hitting the decks at the rooftop bar, and music will be playing across the hotel from 5pm until 4am each day across the weekend.
And there are more acts set to be announced, with underground club Secret Room also poised to reveal a stunning line up of acts for the weekend.
Plus, with restaurants including Maiden Shanghai and Quattro Passi getting involved, there’s bound to be some stunning food to pick at.
Tickets start from Dhs300 per day, including three drinks, and weekend passes come in at Dhs750 with ten drinks included. Nightly rates at the hotel start at Dhs1,250 including two general tickets, meanwhile you can stay at the sister hotel in JVC, with rates at FIVE Jumeirah Village starting from Dhs885 per night, also with two general tickets.
It’s time to go enjoy the winter.
From Dhs300 (day), Dhs750 (weekend). Dec 12-14, 5pm-4am. FIVE Palm Jumeirah, Palm Jumeirah, www.luvya.live.
