Jamiroquai

Led by the eccentric frontman Jay Kay, the nine-piece group will bring the funk to the party with nearly a dozen hits including the Marvin Gaye-aping Cosmic Girl, the swaggering Canned Heat and the blue-eyed soul of Virtual Insanity.

Basement Jaxx

The Dubai favourites return with a live band to perform a career-spanning set featuring Red Alert, Rendez-Vu, Romeo and Oh My Gosh.

Martin Solveig

The electro-house producer and DJ was responsible for some of the brightest moments in Madonna’s latest album MDNA. The Frenchman was the beat-maker for the Madge singles Give Me All Your Luvin’ and Turn Up the Radio.

• Sandance is on at Nasimi Beach at Atlantis, The Palm, on Friday. Tickets begin from Dh295 from www.timeouttickets.com
