Hip-hop legends De La Soul to play free gig at Barasti tonight

Mystery act revealed ahead of performance to celebrate US Independence Day

Hip-hop legends De La Soul to play free gig at Barasti tonight

We broke the news earlier this week that another free gig is coming to Barasti tonight, and, again, the identity of the act has been kept a complete secret.

Coming over to Dubai to help the city celebrate US Independence Day (and, by the way, there are some great deals to be found around town today), we knew that the act was an old school American hip-hop trio, who collaborated with Snoop Dogg at some point.

But, beyond that, nobody really knew where to start with guesses (especially as most people had guessed last time round that it was going to be Craig David).

Now, we know the identity of the act playing tonight. And, remember, it’s totally free to enter.

Pioneers of quirky hip-hop and eclectic sampling, De La Soul are going to be hitting the stage later on tonight at the bar’s House of Whatever.

Remember Me, Myself & I, The Magic Number and All Good?

You’ll hear them later on tonight, although Barasti hasn’t confirmed what time the band are going to be kicking things off, so head along early and get involved.
Free. Thu Jul 4, from 8pm. Le Méridien Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina, Al Sufouh (04 318 1313).
