Hype Awards 2015 - date set for leading celebration of Dubai's nightlife
What’s On pals Hype have news about Hype Awards 2015, the leading nightlife and music awards in UAE. Tickets will be available to the public.
Put in a holiday request or bribe a friend to write a sick note because you’re going to need a day to recover after this year’s Hype Awards. Wednesday, April 22, is the big night and we’re going all out to make it even better than last year’s inaugural bash.
Venue details will be released soon, but rest assured this is an awards party like no other in Dubai. The Hype Awards bring together the UAE’s hard-working industry players and dedicated party people to celebrate all that’s great and good about the region’s music and nightlife scene.
Like last year, there will be more emphasis on fun than formalities, with dancefloor warriors also invited to attend by registering for free tickets online. Keep your eyes peeled on future issues of Hype and, of course, What’s On, for more details on how to land your hot tickets.
With 20 categories this year – including a few new ones – the longlist of deserving nominees is currently being whittled down to the shortlist – no easy task given the thriving state of the club scene.
Last year’s awards at White Dubai was quite a bash; with testimonials flooding in after the fog had lifted. Amongst them, DJ Frank Fu said: “Hype really showed what it’s all about; you guys captured it completely.” At the time, Bassworx promoter Tim Woodcock said: “The Hype Awards set a new benchmark of credibility in the Middle East. Few could argue with the nominees and eventual winners, and the night itself was a right laugh.” And describing it as “one heck of an event”, 2014’s Best Producer winner, Schooly, added: “From the hosting to the venue, it was classy, glamorous and very well put together. I can see all the other [award] organisers switching their game up, wondering how they top that.”
In the words of last year’s Best Breakthrough DJ winner, Somalie: “The Hype crew knows how to party!” So do yourself a favour and be part of the coolest awards party in town.
