And it’s free entry for all…

We love a good party, and the latest festival announcement at Barasti has got us really excited.

A three day electronic music festival, Sound Collective, is set to return to Barasti Beach this April, and it’s bringing a host of global EDM DJs with it. 

They’re set to be led by Grammy award winning Benny Benassi. Last in Dubai in 2016 to perform at DXBeach, Benassi has enjoyed more than 15 years of success in the EDM music industry after he rose to fame off the back of his 2002 hit, Satisfaction.

Kicking off on the evening of Thursday April 5, it will run until Saturday April 7 with a line up headlined by Benny Benassi, Quintino, Yves V and Dante Klein, who have all established themselves as pioneers in the electronic and dance music scenes, headlining at international festivals including Tomorrowland, Ultra and Creamfields.

It’s the second year that the festival has hit the shores of Barasti, after it was first launched last year.

Dutch DJ and producer Quintino has established himself as one of the leading forces in the global dance music scene today. In the past two years, Quintino released major hits like ‘Freak’ and ‘I Just Can’t’ together with fellow Dutchman R3hab, which both passed 40 million streams, followed up by collaborations with Cheat Codes & Nervo.

Belgian big-room headliner, Yves V has risen to international standing thanks to his music filling the playlists of the biggest DJs on the planet, including David Guetta, Afrojack and Martin Garrix.

In 2017, Sound Collective broke records, with over 30,000 party people hitting Barasti Beach across the three days for the festival.

To guarantee your place on the beach at the biggest festival of the year, be sure to arrive early.

Barasti Beach, Le Meridien Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina, Thurs April 5 to Sat April 7, free. Tel: (04) 3181313.
