A 12-hour Block Party is coming to The Galleria on Al Maryah Island on November 15.
Headlining the Block Party is a ine-up of A-list artists, each performing a dedicated concert.
In a UAE-first, some of these performances will take place from an elevated height from The Galleria’s upper terraces, providing a new experience for Abu Dhabi residents and visitors.
While Abu and Nadine Lustre will dazzle guests from up high, Yo Yo Honey Singh and DJ Jazzy Jeff will keep the party in full swing on street level.
In addition, large LED screens streaming the concerts will be placed at key areas on the island, ensuring everyone gets in on the action as it happens.
To commence the festivities, the Abu Dhabi Police Band will parade through Al Falah Street playing the UAE National anthem, setting in motion an all-day agenda of family fun and cultural entertainment.
Local DJs will keep the vibe upbeat throughout the day including DJ Bliss, while roaming street acts such as jugglers, stilt walkers, statue artists, face painters and clowns will entertain.
Daniel Parry, managing director of Gulf Related, said: “The Galleria’s Block Party is a celebration of Abu Dhabi’s diverse and vibrant community. Catering to all ages, we expect it to be one of the most entertaining events of the year. This is a non-ticketed event, and we invite everyone to come to Al Maryah Island to enjoy live concerts from international artists, family entertainment, excellent shopping, exciting dining options and much more."
Al Falah Street, which will be pedestrian only, will be the hub of activity linking all areas of the Block Party.
Abu Dhabi Global Market Square (ADGM) will host dedicated Family Zones, suitable for young children and parents with strollers.For all the latest retail news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
