Emirates Airline Festival of Literature unveils new location for 2022


The 14th edition of the Emirates Airline Festival of Literature will take place at a new location by the Dubai Canal.

The 2022 festival, held under the theme "Here Comes the Sun", will be held at Al Habtoor City between February 3 - 12, organisers revealed. 

It will include special events and activations at Expo 2020.

Festival Director Ahlam Bolooki said the move to a new location marks an exciting new era for the Festival.

"Our continued success as a Festival is in part down to how we keep evolving, bringing in new elements, special events and features that resonate with our community. 

"Our theme for the coming Festival, Here Comes the Sun, is perfect for our post pandemic world. This is the dawn of a new, forward-looking era. The 2022 Festival will bring optimism, renewal and it will shed light on issues that are usually obscured by the dark, including some of the most important topics of our time," Bolooki added.       

The author line-up will be revealed on November 17.
