The lowdown Event: Gulf Bike Week When: Thu October 24 Where: Dubai Media City Ampitheatre
The quiet green in Media City was transformed into a bikers’ dream with stands full of motorcycles, accessories and stunt riders. Music was provided by Dubai’s local rock talent, with The Maplejacks performing classic rock ahead of a lively appearance from The Boxtones and an electric set from Jay Wood. Thankfully, despite the presence of leather clad bikers, there were no Altamont-like problems and the atmosphere was family friendly and relaxed.
