With less than a month to go before W Abu Dhabi – Yas Island hosts the inaugural HYPE Festival, there’s a very visible wave of excitement building amongst the UAE’s discerning dance music devotees. And it’s understandable, the one-night-only festival features a trio of talented global headliners, each preeminent in their own EDM grooves — with Claptone, Joris Voorn, Mambo Brothers booked in and committed to raining HYPE fire on the capital.

Access to this alfresco fiesta is priced from just Dhs195, with the last remaining tickets, tables and VIP packages still currently available via the abu-dhabi.platinumlist.net website. But you’ll need to be quick, we’re on to the last round of tickets.

The HYPE is real

It’s taking place on Saturday November 5, between 3pm and 1am, at W Abu Dhabi – Yas Island’s stunning Palm Garden, a breezy alfresco venue with the UAE’s famous Grand Prix racetrack as its dramatic backdrop.

HYPE tees up a month of truly exceptional musical mayhem at the Yas Island hotel. Later in the month, as part of the long race weekend, there’s a relay of epic F1 related revelry, including trackside brunches, pool parties and a special soiree headed up by Roger Sanchez. And if you’d like more information on exactly what’s going on at the party that ignites it all, check out our guide to the seven biggest reasons to get excited for the HYPE.

HYPE Sound

But if November 5 simply feels too far away and that pent-up big-fish-little-fish energy is approaching reactor meltdown levels — we have a little musical amuse-bouche for you. An audio appetiser, served piping hot directly to your eardrums from the Spotify beat kitchens.

Within these journeying tracks you’ll find sun-soaked mellow chill, hectic remixes, a pinch of ethnic-trance, cliff-top drops, and scorching Balearic bass born and raved on the Mediterranean party islands. In addition to the world-famous talent, you’ll also find contributions from a couple of local DJing legends, also booked in for the main event, too.
