Knowledge story, The Knowledge

Mark Ronson is to headline a brand new music festival in Dubai.

The music producer – whose song Uptown Funk took over the music charts worldwide last year – joins what’s dubbed as the summer party calendar’s “biggest date”.

DXBeach will take place at the emirates famous Zero Gravity venue, which was announced Time Out Dubai’s Best New Club and Best House Night last week at our Music and Nightlife Awards 2015.

So get ready to buy tickets for the event on Friday April 24 – open from 12pm to 3am - as they go on sale this Thursday April 2.

DXBeach is the first in a series of day-to-night music festivals planned to hit the shores of the city’s venue, with space for 5,000 revellers to enjoy what’s on offer.

The day will begin with local DJs heroes as attendees lounge around in the sun and enjoy water sports.

Then artists such as BBC Radio 1 royalty, Danny Howard, Swedish producer John Dahlback, and British singer Jess Glynne will perform. The latter artist is currently number one in the UK charts with Hold My Hand, but she’s also known for providing vocals on Clean Bandit’s tracks Rather Be and Real Love.

More personalities on the decks are still to be announced.

Zero Gravity will offer a special DXBrunch package 12-3pm on the venue’s upper deck and terrace, which will include access to DXBeach.
