Heads up: J-Lo, Ed Sheeran and Elton John concerts will all be unlicensed
Autism Rocks is now a dry venue…
Fiesta de los Muertos was announced as a dry event the day the concert took place, and we can now confirm that the Jennifer Lopez, Ed Sheeran and Elton John concerts will all be alcohol free.
The Jennifer Lopez concert is this weekend, Ed Sheeran is performing on November 23 and Elton John on December 8.
“In an effort to cater to a larger audience across all age groups, Ahli Holding Group, the land owner of the Autism Rocks Arena, has made the decision to change direction and operate the Autism Rocks Arena as a dry venue for the foreseeable future,” event organisers 117 Live said.
The organisers will offer all guests a Dhs50 F&B voucher at the door when they arrive at the arena, and they are also offering full refunds to any customers who have bought tickets to the concerts.
The refunds will be particularly of note for those who have purchased hospitality packages or VIP tables – they will all be offered a refund on the beverage portion of their packages.
The venue being dry will likely put a heavier load on parking at the venue. There are two access roads to the venue from Emirates Road and Al Ain Road, with an accessible one-way entrance to the show until 9pm and one-way exit after the show.
After the Jennifer Lopez concert a free bus services will take guests to three locations: Dubai Mall, Mall of Emirates and Deira City Centre.
More traffic and transport info ‘re the Ed Sheeran and Elton John concerts will be released shortly.
