FES­TI­VAL TIME!

Friday - - Leisure Charts -

For­get two – thou­sands will tango (and salsa and rhumba) at the Dubai Latin Fest from April 13-15. Dubai Me­dia City Am­phithe­atre will turn into a car­ni­val as salsa band and Latin Grammy win­ners El Gran Combo de Puerto Rico and reg­gae­ton duo Cali Flow Latino per­form. Apart from Latin mu­sic and dance, the fes­ti­val will also be screen­ing movies and host­ing food stalls that will serve up South Amer­i­can del­i­ca­cies. Three-day passes from Dh250 at dubailat­in­fest.com

You can get into the spirit of all this Latin fun early at the JBR Latin Car­ni­val Pa­rade fea­tur­ing street per­for­mances by dancers and mu­si­cians. From 6.30-8.30pm to­day and 5-7pm to­mor­row.

The world’s most imag­i­na­tive minds come to­gether from April 13-15 at the ING Cre­atives Fes­ti­val at Alserkal Av­enue. Nasa’s vis­ual di­rec­tor Dan Goods (left), Pixar’s di­rect­ing an­i­ma­tor An­drew Gor­don and Google’s UX de­signer Hec­tor Ouil­het are some of 27 speak­ers. There are work­shops and a mar­ket with works by artists, il­lus­tra­tors and graphic de­sign­ers.

Week-long retro fes­ti­val Go Vin­tage al­lows you to step back in time un­til April 13 at Dubai World Trade Cen­tre’s Zabeel Hall 3. The 1950s-in­spired fes­ti­val pays trib­ute to rock-n-roll cul­ture with mu­sic, vin­tage cars, films, car­toons and diner food such as milk­shakes and burg­ers. The fes­ti­val also has ’50s-themed kids’ ac­tiv­i­ties such as arts and crafts, kids’ food truck games, cook­ing classes, kids’ en­ter­tain­ers and face paint­ing. The fes­ti­val runs along­side per­for­mances of the mu­si­cal which has daily shows at DWTC’s Zabeel Hall 2 from to­day un­til April 13.
