Eid dunno about you, but we're ready for Dubai concerts this weekend!
Dubai Residents are in for a musical treat this Eid Al Fitr as famous Arab singers will take centre stage at Layali Dubai in a series of concerts.
Performers from Lebanon, Morocco, Iraq, Saudi Arabia and the UAE will entertain âEid in Dubai’ crowds at the Layali Dubai concerts beginning on August 9 at the Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC), according to the Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment (DFRE), an agency of the Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing.
Morocco’s Mona Amarcha and Emirati heart-throb Hussain Al Jasmi will serenade audiences on the first salvo of the Layali Dubai. On August 10, Emirati crooner Ahlam, a member of the judges’ panel on Arab Idol, and Walid Al Shami, a promising young artiste from Iraq, will entertain guests at Layali Dubai. Saudi singer Rabeh Saqr and Lebanese superstar and Unicef Goodwill ambassador Nancy Ajram will entertain âEid in Dubai’ audiences on August 11.
Veteran entertainer Mohammad Abdo from Saudi Arabia will give a grand performance on the final night on August 12.
Concert tickets are priced from Dh150 to Dh1,500.
