The grooviest party in town is sadly coming to the end of its season, but not without pulling out all the stops.

Groove on the Grass has announced that it’s bringing in drum and bass band Rudimental along with English electronic music group 808 State for its massive season closing show.

Taking place from 5pm until 3am on Friday April 19 at Emirates Golf Club, partygoers won’t be “Waiting All Night” to rave to the hit electronic tunes of UK group Rudimental.

The Feel The Love hitmakers mix instrumentation with digital programming to create dance-ready yet organic anthems.

Up for a bit of nostalgic jams from the ’80s? You’re in for a treat, as 808 state are also headlining the final show. The iconic electronic music group that defined the UK’s acid house and techno sound in the 1980’s.

Expect everything from hit singles Pacific and Cubik to the thumping tunes of In Yer Face. They influ-enced artists like Underworld, The Chemical Brothers and Orbital, so expect to dance the night away.

That’s not all, as joining these huge bands is American artist Bill Patrick. The DJ started his career at legendary clubs such as The Limelight and Vinyl & Arc. He’s now been thrust into a whirlwind of high profile gigs and festivals worldwide.

Lastly, Groove On The Grass also announced a slew of incredible local talent, including home-grown success story Hollaphonic with a live show to the main stage, along with performances from The Flip Side-owner Shadi Megallaa and a special back-to-back set by Maat and Stu Todd.

Dubai is getting a host of UK stars to come in April, including British popstar James Arthur at Zero Gravity on Friday April 26.

It’s the last chance you’ll get before the summer months kick in, so don’t miss out on this final blow-out.
