Time Out Dubai staff
Genre-skipping music festival Blended will return to Dubai’s Media City Amphitheatre in April.
Billed as a festival for music-lovers of all varieties headline acts will be Kasabian, Jessie Ware, Craig David, Kool & The Gang and Robin Thicke.
The festival takes place over two days with Thomas Ovesen, Chief Operating Officer of Done Events said “Done Events are immensely proud of our expanding music festival portfolio, we had so much positive feedback from last year’s festival, that we are proud to be expanding the format in 2015. One of the strengths of Blended is its eclectic stage programming, from Kool & The Gang’s 1970’s disco to Kasabian’s indie rock anthems, there really is something for everyone.”
The line-up divides into two equally enticing events with Thursday, April 30 as 2014 Glastonbury headliners Kasabian sharing a stage with soulful songstress Jessie Ware and multi-platinum selling R&B singer Craig David performing a sundowner acoustic set.
The next night Kool & The Gang will lead the Celebration along with Blurred Lines singer, Robin Thicke and chart newcomers Nico & Vinz.
With more artists set to be announced it is already looking like one of the must-see music events of the year.
Blended will take place on Thursday 30th April from 6pm and on Friday 1st May from 4pm. Tickets priced from Dhs395 for Picnic Style tickets (including the much coveted Blended picnic blankets). Other ticket categories include the Blended Lounge at Dhs695 and VIP (including all inclusive food and beverage) at Dhs1395.
