You can take your pick from whatever you fancy. Irish pop legends Boyzone at The Irish Village? UK EDM live act Clean Bandit at Zero Gravity? French Montana live at Drai’s Dubai and WHITE Dubai?
Well now you can add a big weekend at BASE Dubai to that rapidly growing list, because the open-air super-club in d3 (and also a Highly Commended winner at the 2019 Time Out Dubai Music & Nightlife Awards) has just announced two massive nights, one of which is spearheaded by one of the biggest names in rap history.
While Thursday night will see DJ Keza return to town for a free gig at the club’s regular, elements-themed night LYFE (with a ladies’ night offer on until 2am), it’s the return of Busta Rhymes to Dubai that’s grabbing the headlines this weekend.
The rapper, who last performed at the club in 2017 during BASE’s massive opening season, will be hitting the stage on Friday April 12. It’s going to be a late-night gig, with most acts kicking off around 1am, but it’ll be worth cancelling your morning alarm (who has one of those on a Saturday, anyway?).
It’s free entry for the first 100 ladies, then Dhs100 thereafter, and Dhs150 for gents all night.
Then on Saturday it’s the return of Crazy Land, the huge bash run alongside party brand Candypants, in which you’ll get music from DJ act Tango x Willow (shortlisted for the Best Dubai DJ at Time Out Dubai’s Music & Nightlife Awards), as well as free entry, a ladies’ night deal and a free drink if you arrive in fancy dress.
Can’t say fairer than that, can you.
Now, go smash the weekend.
Open Thu-Sat 10pm-4am. BASE, d3, Ras Al Khor Road, firstname.lastname@example.org (055 313 4999).
