Throwback disco dreams all around…

Bla Bla Dubai’s brand new outdoor stage is seeing quite a stylish inauguration, as the one and only Nile Rodgers is set to take the stage with his band, CHIC, on November 4, 2023.

The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee has an impressive list of hats on his stand, including singer, songwriter, composer, producer, arranger, and guitarist. He’ll be bringing his spunky Grammy-award-winning tunes to the venue with the stunning Ain Dubai as the backdrop.

The musician has many timeless tracks to his name, the most notable being the chart-topping hit ‘Le Freak’ which, to this day, is the biggest-selling single in the history of Atlantic Records. His production and collaboration credits extend to greats like David Bowie, Madonna, Duran Duran, Daft Punk, Beyoncé and Diana Ross.

What to expect?

On the evening, doors open at 5pm, and the show will kick off with sets from the lineup of talented DJs and the support band. Nile Rodgers and CHIC will take over during the later part of the night, with the event expected to end around 10.30pm.

But of course, the party doesn’t end there. You can head over to the tent, where the after-party will be kept going by the in-house DJs at the beach club into the early morning. Food and beverages will be available throughout the night.
