Infusion Magazine - - LOOKING BACK -

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.
