Pair to perform at 1980s retro festival at Festival Park
Time Out Dubai staff
Dubai’s thirst for all things retro continues unabated with news of another huge retro festival, starring the likes of Boy George and Belinda Carlisle. Hot on the heels of last month’s unashamed retro ’90s hoedown Mixtape Rewind comes an even bigger bill delving further back in the depths of time. Absolute ’80s Live will take place at the huge Festival Park, the same spot as Dubai International Jazz Festival, on Friday March 1. Alongside Mr George and Ms Carlisle, the line-up will also feature Paul Young, Kid Creole and the Coconuts, Curiosity Killed the Cat and The Real Thing. What’s more, the audience has been given the chance to choose who else they’d like to see play, with more acts to be announced following a recent poll. Now, where did we leave that wig?
