By the time the walk of fame is finished, the huge landmark will have over 10,000 stars. However, only 400 special artists and celebrities will be chosen for the first stage of The Dubai Stars when it launches in October.
The organization states, “The Dubai Stars by EMAAR is an epic walkable tribute saluting eminent personalities who have positively contributed to the world through their work in various fields.”
Although BTS has not yet been to Dubai to perform, the organization made it clear that the nominees do not need a direct link to Dubai. Instead, they seek to make it a global landmark where people from all around the world can be nominated for excellence in their respective fields.
