Fatboy Slim fans, that’s your Friday night sorted…

If you’ve already made Friday brunch plans but know that the group chat will inevitably turn to what to do afterwards, Party in the Park has got you covered.

The one-day music festival is back this weekend on Friday November 1 with a line-up of top British acts taking to the stage. But, if you’re not heading down for the full day andstill want to see legendary DJ Fatboy Slim (and who doesn’t?), they’ve just announced a brand new ticket.

Priced at Dhs250, it’ll give you general access from 9pm, meaning you’re there in ample time to see the Eat Sleep Rave Repeat legend take to the decks at 10pm. You can buy your tickets here.

Fatboy Slim, real name Norman Cook, is Brighton’s very own superstar DJ is 56 now, and no less able to get a crowd moving than when Praise You topped the charts 20 years ago. Even for those PITP-goers whose clubbing days are receding into the metaphorical rear-view mirror at this point, Cook dropping throwback bangers like Right Here, Right Now will get them straight back on the dance floor.

His 1998 album You’ve Come A Long Way Baby made Cook internationally famous and his track ubiquitous, then a 2013 return to making music saw him top the dance charts again, with Eat, Sleep, Rave, Repeat. Consider that your instruction manual for the Party in the Park.
