EXCLUSIVE – Tinie Tempah to play free Dubai gig

UK rapper is headlining this weekend and we've got all the details

It’s going to be a massive weekend for live acts coming to Dubai, and UK star Tinie Tempah is back in town for another big night – and it’s free.

The rap star, who’s had a string of massive chart hits over the past decade, including Pass Out, Written In The Stars, Girls Like, Wonderman and more, is here on Friday March 16 at WHITE Dubai – the Time Out Dubai Club of the Year.

Tinie Tempah will be here to headline Disturbing Dubai, a night he launched through his own management label, publishing company and fashion brand, Disturbing London. He was here at the start of February, and he’s back again for another huge night.

The star has got almost every major award under his belt from the UK music industry, including BRIT Awards, MOBO Awards, Urban Music Awards, nominations for the Mercury Prize, and hundreds of millions of hits on YouTube and streams on Spotify and Deezer. He’s collaborated with Calvin Harris, Ellie Goulding and even played on the main stage at Glastonbury with Snoop Dogg himself.

And it all started with this absolute tune…

Also on the night will be DJ Charlesy and BBC Radio 1Xtra DJ Moky, so get ready to dance all night long. And if you’re heading to Meydan on Friday for the gig, drop into Drai’s Dubai, where you can see Canadian rapper Tory Lanez playing earlier in the night. But if you miss him at Drai’s on Friday, head to WHITE on Saturday night to see Lanez play again.

It’s free entry to WHITE all night, with doors open from 11pm until 4am, and there’s an added bonus for women because it’s ladies’ night until 1am with unlimited free drinks on offer.

Free. Fri Mar 16, 11pm-4am. Meydan Racecourse Grandstand, Nad Al Sheba (050 443 0933).
