DXBEACH @ ZERO GRAVITY
Sandy feet, thousands of people and chart topping acts blasting out over the picturesque backdrop of Dubai at night – close your eyes and it could almost have been Sandance.
This though was the launch of DXBeach at one of the city’s hot spots, Zero Gravity. ‘ Uptown Funk’ star Mark Ronson was the main draw, but Jess Glynne stole the show with her live vocals and stage presence. Previously, Nightmares on Wax set the tone at sunset with a trip hop masterclass, before Australian duo Sneaky Sound System upped the tempo as the sun set. The weather was unseasonably hot, creeping into the high 30s, meaning the well set out 5,000 capacity crowd didn’t arrive until later in the day, but Dubai’s weekend warriors still went toe- to- toe with the humidity and rising temperatures. Word on the street is that DXBeach will be back in October, we’re looking forward to it already.
