You don’t factor in the possibilities of a heavy rain shower when you’re organising a massive outdoor charity event in Dubai. But as luck would have it, Autism Rocks and 117’s family-filled day started on gloomy grounds. The afternoon began with organic food stalls, a live petting stand and the zip line podium sparsely filled with those who braved the rain.
However, come 7pm and the announcement of American rapper Tyga on site, the weather started to behave itself and teenagers hurried towards the stage. Tyga performed hits Rack City and Ice Cream Man during his 50-minute set, before handing over the stage to DJs Seb and Fever from Radio One.
The bottom line
An unforgettable, value-for-money night for a great cause.
