Music at Sole

Since the platform encourages street culture and local raw art, undoubtedly music becomes its indispensable part. Every year popular and talented artists come together to celebrate the true essence of music. Last year’s performers included Skepta, Dam-Funk, DJ Clark Kent and Stretch Armstrong. They are not only highly acclaimed but also regarded as the greatest champions of funk generation.

The Fashion Scene

Sole DXB not only brings the most prominent international designers and credible brands under one roof, but also the newest and most funky trends to town. It is especially a delight for all the sneaker lovers out there. One can find numerous pop-up shops that present a chance to trainers and amateurs to get a hands-on experience of designing and painting footwear. From smaller local brands to more established ones like Nike, Adidas and others, you can find all participating together here.

Interactive Sessions with the Legends

One of the most exciting streaks about this event is its panel and open discussion sessions. The previous edition of the event gave visitors an opportunity to interact with the legendary Henry Chalfant and Carlos Mare with regards to the release of the movie Style Wars – as it showcases some reflections of the street culture and art of America in the 1980’s.

The hip-hop documentary not only allows people to gain better understanding of the concept of cross-sectional street culture but also have an insight into upcoming trends and tastes of music, fashion and design.
