Disclosure will make their Dubai debut at a brand new music festival later this season.
Taking place on April 29, the Love Music Your Way gig will be held at Dubai Media City Amphitheatre and also feature Rudimental and a whole host of local talent. It will be the first time the two headline acts have shared a stage.
Rudimental have a huge following in the UAE having hosted a range of gigs - stripped back, DJ only and live - at the likes of F1 Abu Dhabi, The Act, and also down at Atlantis.
However the gig in April breaks new ground for the London quartet as they team up with multi-award winning producers and DJs Disclosure. Barely three years in the game, brothers Howard (21-years-old) and Guy Lawrence (24) are responsible for some of the biggest dance tracks of recent times. Their 2013 debut album Settle helped launch the careers of Sam Smith, among others, while their follow-up featured Weeknd, Lorde and Gregory Porter.
Later this year, the boys from Reigate, Surrey, will headline Coachella. But first, it's Dubai Media City Amphitheatre on April 29.
Further big names will join Rudimental and Disclosure - the latter last appeared in the Middle East at the 2013 edition of Creamfields - on the bill, while details of the specially selected local stars will follow soon.
According to official information released by organisers, the event will have 'an authentic festival experience by integrating music, art, food, beauty and fashion all under one umbrella. The family-friendly event will bring together the city’s music enthusiasts, festival goers, art lovers and fashion trendsetters to celebrate artistic expression against the stunning backdrop of Dubai Media City Amphitheatre.
'Much more than a concert, this exciting event will stimulate all the senses, combining the grit of Glastonbury with the creativity of Coachella and delivering them to Dubai’s doorstep. It will give a genuine taste of festival culture with a compilation of some of the music world’s best performers, not forgetting the region’s tastiest convoy of food trucks, quirky pop-up stores and entertaining kids’ activities, all to a sensational soundtrack.'
