Twinge – UAE’s First Urban Festival

I’ve lived in Dubai for more than 17 years but this city never ceases to surprise me.  Just this weekend I was coming out of one of my favorite old haunts, Reem Al Bawadi, and saw a little falcon chilling in the front seat of a Range Rover.

Similarly, this year I discovered the emerging hipster, arts scene in Al Quoz. With a number of galeries like the Fridge and Shelter, I’ve managed to catch a glimpse of hidden Dubai’s talent, notably the beautiful Gayathri.

Now there is a new festival that encourages UAE-based talent in arts and culture, TWINGE DXB. TWINGE-DXB 2011 is the first edition of this urban arts and culture festival that is organized by the community of Dubai and for the community.

When is it? 10-16 December 2011
Where will it take place? Wild Peeta Open Space at DWTC
What time does it start? Everyday doors open at 6pm, shows start at 7:30pm
Who can attend? Anyone who can get there. Don’t forget to bring your friends!
How much does it cost? It’s absolutely FREE!

For the detailed schedule and updates, follow them on TwitterFacebook or on their website. And we hope to bump into you there!
