ATB talks to Time Out

The DJ and Coma Festival headline stops for a quick chat.

Interview, DJ feature

Have you played the UAE before?
I’ve already played Dubai five times before and I really love to play here! The crowd is always in a good mood, the clubs are great and the people have such good energy.

Are you excited about Coma?
I’m always excited before gigs, but I try to hold back any expectations. This is the first festival I’ve played in the UAE, so I think it’ll be different to the club gigs, but I’m sure I will have a good time on stage.

How do you think it will compare to similar festivals such as Global Gathering?
I think the stage and the whole setup will be smooth and professional. The only difference will be the crowd, which is from the Middle East. But like I told you, I know the crowd and they are so powerful that I expect a great party.

Who are you looking forward to hearing?
I’m actually happy to listen to any of the other DJs playing there. I don’t often have the opportunity to listen to other DJs, so let’s see who I’m able to listen to.

If you could only bring one track to the island what would it be?
I wouldn’t – I would stay at home, because for a DJ it’s very senseless to bring just one track to a gig!
