The 29th edition of the annual Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF) will be held from December 8, 2023 to January 14, 2024, which would be bigger and better than previous editions, said Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment (DFRE), the organiser of the festival.

During the 38 days of the popular event, the visitors will witness an electrifying musical event featuring two of the Arab world's most iconic artists Ahlam Alshamsi and Assala Nasri who will take to the stage for a live, one-night-only performance at the Coca-Cola Arena on December 15, 2023.
