Get ready for the Casa Playa festival, which hits Nasimi Beach on Thursday September 28 and Friday 29, to mark the beginning of a brand-new nightlife season.
This one-off festival will see bands playing a set of acoustic live jams creating a chilled-out, boho vibe to ease you through sunset.
International acts will play on the main stage, and then a resident DJ will take to the floating pontoon, upping the tempo to see you into the small hours. Make sure you take the chance to have a dance on the sand.
But it’s not all about the music.
The two-day Casa Playa festival will also feature a whole host of activities to keep your day exciting and pretty much like no other you’ve spent in Dubai.
You’ll be able to take part in stand-up paddleboarding and water volleyball, and there will also be a Challenge Anneka-style competition to enter, which will involve you and a team of your pals building a raft out of driftwood, palm tree leaves and anything else you can find on the beach and in the sea. You’ll then use your creation to race your competitors for the chance to win a prize.
The winners get access to the VIP area for both days, plus free-flowing drinks from 7pm to midnight and a festival survival goodie pack.
So mark Thursday September 28 and Friday 29 in your diaries, round up a group of your most enterprising, imaginative and creative, music-mad mates, and get ready for two days of chilled-out, alternative, sporty fun.
Free Thu Sep 28, 6pm-3am; Fri Sep 30, 1pm-3am. Nasimi Beach, Atlantis The Palm, Palm Jumeirah (04 426 2000).
