Dubai to get walk of fame saluting 10,000 international celebrities
Dubai is about to get its own ‘Hollywood Walk of Fame’ – but four times bigger than the one in Los Angeles.
Emaar, the developer of iconic structures such as Burj Khalifa, The Dubai Mall, Dubai Opera and The Dubai Fountain, has announced ‘Dubai Stars,’ a walk of fame saluting stars and influencers from all over the world.
The project will kick off with a global social campaign asking people from all over the world to nominate their favourite celebrities and influencers for the first 400 stars to be featured at Dubai Stars.
The first phase of Dubai Stars, set along the Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard, in Downtown Dubai, will be unveiled in October at a mega event to be attended by the 400 featured celebrities who will launch their respective star.
Further underlining Downtown Dubai as the main tourist destination in Dubai, Dubai Stars will pay tribute to eminent personalities who have positively influenced the world through their work in various fields including music, film, art, architecture, sports, and literature as well as social influencers.
Dubai Stars at its completion will have over 10,000 stars, about four times the number of stars than Hollywood walk of Fame.
Ahmad Al Matrooshi, Managing Director of Emaar Properties: “Emaar takes pride in ensuring the best lifestyle experience for both residents and visitors to Dubai.
Dubai Stars is billed to become one of the most-visited tourist attractions that will appeal to guests from around the world for the diversity of celebrities to be featured.
