2019 What’s On Nightlife Awards: Here are the nominees…

By

Get ready to celebrate the very best of the region’s nightlife…

Whether you’re looking for the hottest festivals, clubs, bars or DJs, What’s On Nightlife has the party people covered. And over the last year, we’ve been rating, reviewing and getting the low down on the region’s best nightlife, to bring you the What’s On Nightlife Awards 2019.

Taking place on Wednesday April 17 at Barasti beach, we’ll be revealing the top movers and shakers from across the industry. From best club to best DJ, to top house night and the year’s biggest newcomer, the categories recognise all the top people and places that make Dubai’s nightlife scene one of the best in the world.

And it’s not just our opinion that matters – there’s a chance for you to get involved and help us crown four categories this year: Best Party Brunch, Best Evening Brunch, Best Ladies’ Day and Best Ladies’ Night. Voting is now live, and you can cast your votes here.

You can find out everything you need to know about the awards right here.
