Three-day PopCon festival to make UAE debut
26 July, 2016
PopCon, a huge three-day pop-culture festival, is coming to Dubai for the first time this year. The event, which combines music, movies, comics, anime, fashion and lifestyle trends, will be held in a purpose-built complex at Dubai Outlet Mall from 27-29 October. The full line-up of guests and exhibitors is yet to be announced, but the programme is expected to include live concerts, comedy performances, workshops, expert talks and a Cosplay competition. Running alongside PopCon will be the Halloween-themed Fiesta De Los Muertos (Festival of the Dead), which will take place at the same location on 28 October. Organisers say a diverse range of celebrities – from international film studios including Marvel, Disney and San Rio – will attend and meet fans.
