The 2021 Festival is spread across three weekends, starting from 29 January and ending on 13 February. The Festival will begin at Jameel Arts Centre with sessions focusing on art and literature on 29-30 January, followed by the InterContinental Dubai Festival City for a big weekend full of sessions and author talks on 4-6 February, and conclude with a weekend of celebrating literature and creativity at Alserkal Avenue on 12-13 February.
All working media who would like to attend the festival as a member of the press may apply for accreditation via the online form. Application does not guarantee entry. You will be notified if your accreditation request has been approved.
Media accreditation DOES NOT give access to workshops, masterclasses, dinners or special events. The 2021 Festival follows all current Covid-19 guidelines, which means media access to sessions will be limited. We can only guarantee entry to ticket holders.
This year’s Festival will welcome more than 90 authors, including some big names from around the world and the best of the UAE’s homegrown talent. The Emirates Airline Festival of Literature is held with Founding Partners Emirates Airline and the Dubai Culture & Arts Authority (Dubai Culture), the Emirate’s dedicated authority for heritage, arts, and culture. It is held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates and Ruler of Dubai.
