Ready for a short road trip to the capital? Of course you are, and now there’s a very good excuse to head to Abu Dhabi next month.
Chart-topping sensation Dua Lipa is joining forces with Louvre Abu Dhabi to celebrate the world-renowned museum’s first birthday in style.
The One Kiss hitmaker is coming to the capital to headline four days of concerts, exhibitions, family activities and workshops at the Saadiyat Island arts hub.
You’ll know her for the likes of IDGAF, New Rules and Be The One, while her current smash One Kiss with Calvin Harris has spent all summer at the top of charts across the world.
The birthday celebrations will take place from Thursday 8 November 8 until Sunday November 11, with a whole host of activities planned.
They include a series of pop-up performances titled Spoken Art, an exhibition by Emirati designer Salem Al Mansoori, a pop-up architecture weekend and a Manga Lab where you can learn more about Japanese youth culture.
Manuel Rabaté, Director of Louvre Abu Dhabi, said: “Louvre Abu Dhabi’s anniversary celebration is the perfect moment to thank all visitors for making our first year a success and invite them to experience the museum through poetry, music, architecture, design and much more.
“The essence of this museum is to nurture the world’s vibrant cross-cultural connections in all their forms, and what better opportunity than a week-long get together as we turn one.”
British-born Dua Lipa will headline an exclusive performance at Louvre Abu Dhabi’s concert village on November 11, with doors opening at 6pm.
