The Middle East Film and Comic Con (MEFCC), is back in Dubai for its sixth edition and promises to be even bigger than last year where it attracted over 60,000 fans! Showcasing both regional and international entertainment from local bands, performers, and popular culture including some of the world’s biggest brands in Film, TV, Sci-Fi, Animation, Manga, Comics, and Collectables this promises to be one cool event. Oh and keep your eyes peeled for celebrity guests! How about stopping off beforehand for a bite to eat at Lebanese restaurant Mazaher or get your caffeine fix at Caffe Nero.

Inflight Dubai

When: Any time

Where: Skydive Dubai Desert Campus

Ever wanted to experience the thrill of world-class skydiving but just don’t fancy that stomach in mouth feeling you’ll get from jumping out of a plane? Go along to Inflight Dubai, the world’s largest and tallest wind tunnel, where you’ll be flying in minutes—all without a parachute or an aircraft. We decided to take Natalia, the lovely lady behind one of our favourite blogs Think Natalia along so that she could experience it for herself. See her reaction here!

STEP Music Festival

When: April 7

Where: Dubai International Marine Club

Calling all music lovers, this one’s for you! Head along to the STEP Music Festival where you can see music leaders, record labels, producers, and artists all under one roof—all combined with an amazing 12-hour music festival that includes over 18 performances from some of the region’s top artists including Mashrou Leila and The Wanton Bishops. Plus, we’ve made it that little bit more exciting as you can use your ENTERTAINER to get 2 for 1 tickets! Simply turn up on the night and show your ENTERTAINER upon purchase (only available on the April 7). We know we know, we’re good to you aren’t we?!

Grease The Musical

”Why it could be Greased Lightning!” It’s time to relive the epic love story of one of our favourite onscreen couples Danny and Sandy. With colourful fifties-inspired costumes and hairstyles to rock ‘n roll songs, Grease promises to electrify audiences. How about making a full night of it by treating yourself to a yummy meal at nearby Mint Leaf of London, Gaucho, or Center Cut Steak House before hand? Did someone say date night?

Made In Abu Dhabi Festival

When: April 8

Where: Eastern Mangroves Hotel & Spa by AnantaraAbu Dhabi

It’s heating up out there isn’t it! So, grab your friends or family and make the most of the outdoor weather whilst you still can with the Made In Abu Dhabi Festival. This buzzing pop-up market and festival along the stunning Eastern Mangroves Promenade features shopping stalls from more than 60 UAE vendors offering beautiful unique items including clothing, accessories, traditional and artisan crafts, kids toys, homeware and decor, art and so much more. They’ll also be many spots where you can grab a bite to eat, enjoy fun kids activities, arts and crafts, bouncy castles, fantastic music, fresh air and fabulous views! If all that pursuing has you feeling a little peckish then pay a visit to Johnny Rockets where you can enjoy an American feast.
