Arts DAO Fest Launches in Dubai March 11, 2023

The Middle East’s largest NFT community Arts DAO launches the UAE’s first Web 3.0 festival in Dubai at the 25H Hotel, One Central DIFC

Dubai, United Arab Emirates (16 February 2023): Arts DAO, the Middle East’s largest NFT community, will host the region's first Web 3.0 festival, Arts DAO Fest, at the incredible 25H Hotel, located at One Central DIFC, on March 11, 2023. The primary goal of Arts DAO Fest (ADF) is to celebrate NFT and internet culture, which were pioneered in the United States by groups such as the Crypto Punks and the Bored Ape Yacht Club. Additionally, there will be a platform where leading companies will share their knowledge and perspectives on the future of blockchain, NFTs, and decentralized payments, as well as a network for developers, business owners, and investors to connect and work together on new projects. ADF will also give UAE Web 3.0 community members a chance to gather and experience NFT culture in a way that hasn’t been done before.

Anas Bhurtun, Co-Founder and CEO of Arts DAO, comments, “We believe that internet culture is reshaping every aspect of our personal lives, including the way we consume culture, obtain and own personal assets, our experiences, and even our identities." "We have created Arts DAO Fest to empower all demographics and audiences, but in particular to showcase to GEN-Z and millennials how to build their businesses and brands in this new digital era.”
Along with the educational elements of the event, ADF will engage audiences with a wide variety of NFT culture. A dynamic and fast-evolving domain, NFT culture encompasses branding, communication, technologies, concepts, and experiences. ADF will provide a diverse range of NFT community activities, such as digital fashion and art, avatars, live NFT activations, art installations, live NFT minting, metaverse experiences, and other activations. While there will be some leading speakers, the focus will be on live music, DJ sets, entertainment, and scrumptious food and drink—just a few of the amazing physical experiences that will enhance the virtual offerings. -There will also be a shared virtual environment with virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) experiences, as well as meta-cultural collectibles, a bespoke shoe customization area, and more. 
"Internet culture is a fascinating and rapidly-evolving field that has the potential to transform how we interact, communicate, and experience the world around us," says Danosch Zahedi, co-founder and CEO of Arts DAO. "This is obviously so unique for each individual that the scope for methods and mediums to interact with our audiences is immense."

The three core pillars of community, culture, and creation are the focus of ADF. These principles reflect the decentralization and blending of the physical and digital worlds that the industry represents. The NFT communities are frequently a platform for users to create and share their own content, including avatars, virtual objects, and worlds that create distinctive user-generated content in addition to social and economic opportunities. Many NFT projects involve metaverses that are built on decentralized platforms, such as blockchain, which allow for greater autonomy, security, and ownership for users. As a result of ADF, there will be more opportunities for social interaction and communication, as well as new economic models like the ownership of digital assets and online marketplaces. Such evolutions will contribute to experiences and interactions that blur the boundaries between the physical and digital worlds.

Arts DAO Fest will take place on March 11, 2023, from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. at the 25H Hotel, One Central DIFC, and admission is free. There will be a VIP after party at Monkey Bar, a Berlin import rooftop bar positioned on the sixth floor with stunning sunset views, for the more experienced and those looking to further their Web 3.0 immersion.
