We’re already planning our outfits…

If you missed out on a trip to the White Isle this summer, or you’ve just got those Ibiza blues, Ibiza is set to come to you this month as The Zoo Project makes its Dubai debut at Blue Marlin Ibiza UAE.

Known as one of Ibiza’s most popular parties, The Zoo Project is an open-air day-to-night party that takes place at the abandoned zoo in the forest hills.

A rotation of top house DJs headline each week with some pretty wow-worthy entertainment, and it’s a strict animalistic dress code that sees party goers glammed up with glitter and glow paint, so we can’t wait for it to arrive in Dubai.

The event will take place at Blue Marlin on Friday January 18 with doors open from 1pm to 11pm. There will also be a special pop-up brunch package from 1pm until 4pm in the restaurant, priced at Dhs340 per person including house drinks.

Standard entry is free but guestlist and table bookings are strongly advised as this is sure to be a sellout.

Taking up deck duty will be Berlin-based tech and house DJ Steve Bug and The Zoo Project resident, DEFEX. Local DJs and Blue Marlin stalwarts Frederick Stone, Aidin Karami and Michka will support.

Plus, Blue Marlin is promising The Zoo Project performance crew and ‘plenty more surprises’, so we’ve got big expectations for a pretty impressive one-day festival.

Now, to plan our outfit…
