Fancy dress, crazy performers and an edible venue? Willy Wonka would be proud…

As the season draws to a close, venues all over Dubai are pulling out all the stops to make sure they go out with a bang. And Blue Marlin Ibiza UAE is no exception, as it’s set to host ‘Kandy Factory’ a one-off themed party that’s set to take revelers to Wonderland this weekend. 

Promising ‘comical and absurd’ production, crazy decoration and a candy-covered venue, we can’t wait to see what Blue Marlin looks like at the day-to-night party this Friday.

What to wear, you say? Well, dressing up is a must and the venue is encouraging the more imaginative the better. Whether it’s following Alice down the rabbit hole or spiraling to Oz a la Dorothy, guests are encouraged to dress to their inner wild child.

But this is about the music too, as electronic music experimentalist Carl Craig is set to headline at the one-day festival. The Detroit-based techno producer will bring his unique sound to Blue Marlin once again, having last performed at the beach club in April last year.

He’ll be supported by DJ and producer Lehar and duo Underher who will perform live shoreside in the day.

We’re already planning our outfits…

Blue Marlin Ibiza UAE, Golden Tulip Al Jazira Resort, Ghantoot, 1pm to 11pm, Friday May 4. Tel: (056) 113 3400. More info on Facebook
