August Alsina was first spotted on Youtube for his musical talent and since then has gone on to become a huge star. The singer and rapper rose to fame with the 2013 hit, ‘I Luv This’. He went on to collaborate with some big industry names including Rick Ross on Benediction, Nicki Minaj for the hit No Love and released Why I Do It with Lil Wayne.

But Alsina wont’ be the only star to perform in this way. Moving forwards, artists will perform in the middle of the venue’s large dancefloor, in front of the DJ booth to create the exclusive atmosphere that the 1 OAK brand has become renowned for.

This month will also see some brilliant live gigs across the city from stars such as Pitbull, who will open the Pakistan Super League on February 14. Also heading to town that weekend will be an impressive line-up of stars for RedFest DXB, which includes Camilla Cabello, Macklemore, Jess Glynne and G-Eazy.
