Let’s be honest – the 80’s was one of the best decades filled with nostalgia and until today, its style, music, movies and TV shows continue to live on. This Dubai Shopping Festival, the city is reliving memories from 80’s by merging old school favourites with the new world.
Join an immersive journey of nostalgia at Last Exit Al Khawaneej and Al Khawaneej Walk where visitors of all ages are treated to an unmissable experience celebrating pop culture starting from the 80’s up until the noughties. Running from December 23 to January 8, embrace in all the goodness that made your ‘80s memorable – whether it’s nostalgic merchandise or snacks and drinks from your childhood – at several vendors throughout the venue.
You and your little ones can wander around and watch local artists create nostalgic graffiti live on location. There’s also a Dubai Shopping Festival pop-up that you should stop by to rediscover classic cartoons such as Captain Majid and several TV shows to boost your nostalgia.
And with some of the best video games born in the 80’s (such as Pac-Man, Donkey Kong and Mario Bros.) you know you’ll be in for a treat once you come across vintage arcade games. This is your chance to climb up that leaderboard and make top scorer again. There will be the opportunity to strike a pose with a selection of classic cars (here’s looking at all the car enthusiasts out there).
To complete this unmissable experience, expect to listen to some of the best tunes from the eras and singalong to the classics.
The Dubai Shopping Festival will run until January 29, 2023. Stay tuned for more. For more information, visit mydsf.ae.
