Aspire Zone Foundation (AZF) has announced that with preparations for the Aspire Lake Festival almost complete, it is ready to welcome thousands of visitors to the three-day event in partnership with Katara and Ooredoo.

Taking place for the first time in Qatar, the event will be held from today until Saturday, with two shows scheduled at 7.30pm and 9.30pm on each day. The visiting performers arrived in Doha a few days ago and were doing their final rehearsals yesterday, AZF said in a press statement.

AZF has allocated a large seating area to accommodate more than 1,400 spectators who have expressed interest in attending the festival on social media, making it “one of the top cultural attractions in Doha this weekend”, the statement notes. To ensure that guests are catered for, Aspire Zone has also deployed 12 food trucks in the area close to the event. Besides, there will be a fully-equipped media centre. The music and lights show organised for the festival will feature a number of visual performances using specially designed decorations and light effects set to beautiful musical scores. The performers will be presenting these shows on gondolas along the lake.

Nasser Abdullah al-Hajri, director of PR and Communications at AZF, said: “The festival has been carefully developed in partnership with Katara and Ooredoo to highlight novel cultural and artistic elements inspired by Italian culture. It will be presented for the first time in Qatar at Aspire Lake, transforming the scenery into a colourful piece of art that I believe everyone will enjoy.” AZF stressed that it is “committed to boosting the tourism and leisure sectors in Qatar by introducing new activities to attract and excite visitors”. “Due to this innovative approach, Aspire Park has become one of the most popular destinations for both recreational and sporting events,” it added.
