For those of you staying in Dubai over the Christmas period, Soho Garden has an epic week of music lined up for you. First it was announced that award-winning DJ Solomun will be taking the stage on Friday December 27. And the day before will see Duke Dumont take over the outdoor club.
The post-Christmas festivities will kick off on Boxing Day, Thursday December 26, from 8pm. Adam Graca and Mar + Mer will warm up the crowd before Duke Dumont, who’s real name is Adam George Dyment, will play his much-loved hits.
Best known for his huge summer anthems, including Ocean Drive, Need U (100%), I Got U ft Jax Jones and Won’t Look Back, the songwriter and producer has made a name for himself with his up-beat singalong house music.
