Kicking things off, big beat dance legend Fatboy Slim will headline a Halloween themed gig on Thursday October 31. Worshipped for tunes such as Right Here, Right Now and Praise You, in a previous interview with What’s On in 2018, the legendary DJ told us that he “loves the abandon” of a Dubai crowd.

Fatboy Slim be swiftly followed by British rockers The Kooks, who’ll take to the stage on Friday. Over more than a decade in music, The Kooks have released smash hits including Naive, She Moves In Her Own Way and Bad Habit, and we can’t wait to see them perform all their top hits live in Dubai this November.

Also joining the Friday line-up for Party in the Park 2019 is English singer-songwriter, Richard Ashcroft joined by his full band for the first time in the UAE, who’ll be taking festival goers through some Bittersweet Symphonies, performing a string of his releases both as a solo artist and as lead singer of Verve.

It’s not just music on offer though – there’ll also be plenty of food and drink spots, a viewing deck (all-inclusive) and a market garden filled with local vendors.
