The weekend is here, and Dubai’s in the mood to put on a show. What’s happening? Well there’s a new hip hop night, a circus show you won’t want to miss and, of course, electronic festival Tomorrowland is in Dubai for the first time ever.

Here are the three must-hit nights this weekend…

Thursday: Cirque Le Soir with DJ Junior J

It’s had a brand new refurb, and now Cirque Le Soir comes complete with a bigger, better ball pit, a fun fair and a host of new circus acts. It’s one for a wild start to the weekend, where you can expect to enjoy chart hits while watching clowns, fire breathers and sword swallowers.

Friday: Straight Outta Que at Q43

There’s a brand new R&B night at this popular American-inspired loft, with DJ Keza taking over the decks with hip hop and R&B mixes. Promising both brand new hits and old school jams, Straight Outta Que brings a more underground take to Dubai’s R&B scene.
