October is super happening with several events and we are here to guide you through it! As winter sets into the UAE this month, it’s time you head out and make the most of what the city has to offer. To make things easier for you, we’ve listed a bunch of them that we think are definitely going to be worth it.

Shake a leg to Vengaboys

The 90s heartthrobs, the ultimate stars of all time  and in all probability the most grooviest pop music in town, – yes you heard that right, the Vengaboys are all set to perform on October 18th at Zero Gravity in Dubai.

So sit back, relax, and go back in time with all those nostalgic memories as the Vengaboys are here to take you for a ride with their blockbuster hits like Boom Boom Boom and We’re going to Ibiza.

Global Village

The region’s first ever multicultural festival park will be taking place on October 30th to April 7th. Attracting more than 5.3 million guests every season, the 23rd one will be even bigger with the chance of enjoying a shopping experience in more than 30 pavilions and scores of restaurants and cafes throughout the 159 days of operation. So hurry up and get your tickets quick!


This is the very first edition in Dubai and we are super stoked! This festival, which is dedicated to comics and pop culture kicks off on the 27th of October at Dubai Outlet Mall and goes on for three days. You can get free passes to the festival with the option of buying tickets solely for experiences.  This huge event brings the ultimate lineup of celebrities including Hollywood stars from Marvel and Disney who will make a special appearance.
