With the winter season well underway, some of our favourite outdoor party spots are kicking back into gear in a big way. One of those places is Barasti, who are launching their new Friday night beach party, House Junky this weekend.

They’ve got some massive international DJs lined up this year to see in the season in style, so kick off your shoes and dance the night away in the sand under the bright lights and crazy pyrotechnics.

It’s free to enter and the party will carry on from 11am right through to 3am.

Starting things off on Friday, October 25 is Anton Powers, a British DJ who is probably most famous for his work with fellow British DJ and producer Phillip George on hit track ‘Alone No More’.

He’s responsible for a number of top dance remixes for international artists including Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Kylie Monogue, Nicole Serzinger and Mariah Carey and has performed at some of the world’s biggest dance music festivals, with sets at Creamfields, Tomorrowland and Amnesia under his belt.

There’s a double DJ line-up for the weekend of October 31 and November 1, with ‘Drum Warrior’ DJ, Dean Oram, who’s one of the world’s leading club percussionists, taking to the stage on both nights.

Friday, November 8 will see Chicago-based electro house duo, Jump Smokers, who have collaborated with American rapper, Pitbull, taking to the decks.

Buzz Junkies and Ku De Ta will both be getting the party going on Friday, November 29. The former have remixed huge tracks from the likes of P!nk, Pitbull, Jordin Sparks, Kelis and The Saturdays and Ku De Ta are the up-and-coming British DJ duo who have been recognised by well-respected industry names like Tiesto and Don Diablo for their Ibiza chill tracks.

It’s shaping up to be a huge winter season in Dubai…
