What's On (Dubai) - - CULTURE -

Now in its 13th year, Hopfest is a long­stand­ing Dubai in­sti­tu­tion. Held in­side a huge air-con­di­tioned tent ad­ja­cent to The Ir­ish Vil­lage, more than 100 of the world’s best hops are flown in es­pe­cially for a spe­cial week­end of sam­pling and fun. It’s the one time of the year when Dubai’s ale afi­ciona­dos can in­dulge in a se­lec­tion of bev­er­ages not avail­able lo­cally, or just en­joy an old favourite with friends. Mu­si­cal vibes are pro­vided by long­stand­ing Hopfest sta­ples, The Maple­jacks, with sup­port from Roadie and Fixer, and DJ Marky Mark will be spin­ning the hits into the wee hours. Head down early to take ad­van­tage of spe­cial dis­counts be­fore the crowds de­scend. Septem­ber 7 to 9
