If you new year’s resolution is to party like it’s 1999 again, start as you mean to go on at one of the city’s biggest end-of-year bashes. See Snoop Dogg at Atelier, catch Ellie Goulding at Sandance or watch the sky light up at the city’s best fireworks displays. All together now, ‘Should auld acquaintance be forgot ...’

Atelier/Festival ‘New Year’s Eve Edition’

Atelier’s third festival bill stars a headline set from genuine rap legend Snoop Dogg – although he’s now launched a new career as a reggae artist under the name ‘Snoop Lion’, so we’re not sure what to expect. Meanwhile there’s a soundsystem set from Gorillaz (minus Damon Albarn), while Sister Bliss – who closed Sandance NYE last year – returns this time with Maxi Jazz to make up one half of Faithless for a live PA/DJ set. There’s also superstar DJ Armand Van Helden seeing us into the night, alongside singers Inna and September. Phew.
Dhs400-750. 5pm-4am. Meydan Racecourse, Nad Al Sheba
