Party in the Park launches this Fri 14th November as Dubai’s newest festival

What’s On Party in the Park is launching in Dubai Media City this Friday November 14th as one of Dubai’s largest music and entertainment events.

The hotly anticipated festival promises to be so much more than your average music concert, with multiple stages, entertainment, brand activations, food & drink stands and even a famous Dubai brunch.

UK pop princess Lily Allen, who arrived in Dubai this morning, will headline the festival, supported by ex-Verve frontman Richard Ashcroft, Brit chart-toppers The Ting Tings and cult South African band, Freshlyground.

“The set is going to have to be slightly more polite than usual, but it will certainly be just as fun. I’m excited to be in Dubai and perform.”Lily Allen Hello! Middle Eas

In addition to the What’s On main stage, the Hype Clubhouse will feature a never before seen showcase of ten of the best underground clubs and resident DJs in Dubai. From Jixo b2b Danz Gabriel Floriani of Blue Marlin UAE to Lobito Brigante b2b Frezidente of Deep Crates Cartel, these 20 top DJs will unite and play back-to-back sets throughout the duration of the day. The Hype Clubhouse and village is a playground of urban street style with a skate ramp, graffiti artists, festival makeovers and dance troupes.

The Good Garden complete with acoustic stage will offer a slightly more relaxed ambience with soul legend Adam Baluch headlining. Local artisans will be displaying their talents with pop-up shops and activations.

Hello! magazine has also got in on the act, with the Hello! Bubble lounge, arguably the place to see and be seen. Snap a selfie on the red carpet or be pampered at the The Nail Spa whilst sipping on a glass of champagne.
