Quoz Arts Fest, the region’s best-loved arts and culture festival, returns for its 10th edition on Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 January 2023 across Alserkal and Al Quoz. The weekend will feature a diverse and dynamic programme of more than 200 activations, and bring together more than 50 creative concepts from across Al Quoz, to celebrate a decade of success, and feature live music, art, contemporary dance, performing arts, food trucks, public art installations, wellness, and more. Highlights of the bumper weekend include headliners Bu Kolthoum and Saint Levant, who will be performing in the UAE for the first time, along with Big Hass, a Dubai-based hip-hop DJ known for his electric sets, and Omar Musa, a Bornean-Australian rapper and poet who will be treating festival-goers to a powerful spoken word performance.
The 10th edition of the festival will take place under the thematic ‘Shift Away.’ Visitors will be invited to set aside their preconceptions upon entering the festival’s ‘portals’ and shift away to three fantastical worlds. In Shift to Nature, visitors will be challenged on their perception of scale and implored to surrender to the vastness of nature; in Shift to Cyborg, they can explore the dizzying dimensions of the digital universe; and in Shift to Childhood, visitors can unleash their inner child, play, and believe in magic again. Each world will be brought to life with various installations, immersive activities, and more.
