After a three-year hiatus, one of the most anticipated sneaker events is back in Dubai.

Sole DXB is set to take the burgeoning art and culture scene by storm this December by shedding light on various creatives in the region including the Moroccan artist Hassan Hajjaj.

Designed to bring all the artistic talent in the UAE under one roof, this festival focuses on the four pillars of music, fashion, visual arts and sports by previously displaying a stellar lineup of talents from the globe over. Over the years famous artists such as Stormzy, Nas and more have performed at this spectacular event with more names to come.

“This is a major milestone for us, having a decade under our belt. And we always knew the story would land right back where we started,” said co-founder of Sole DXB, Joshua Cox.
