A beach side music festival, progressive sounds and Romanian dance music are on offer this weekend
Clubland: Infinity Sessions, Zed Mechanics, Fly Project and Akcent
Infinity Sessions at Nasimi Beach
Ever since the plug was pulled on the popular music festival Sandance, the music action at Atlantis the Palm has moved to another idyllic spot on the resort called Nasimi Beach. This is not entirely a bad thing. Where the latter editions of Sandance was more raucous than rock, Friday’s Infinity sessions at Nasimi is a more chilled affair with a tasteful selection of DJ playing house, techno and dance. Headliners include Fedde Le Grand, Karen Harding and Tough Love. Friday, October 13. Tickets begin from Dh250 from dubai.platinumlist.net. Doors open at 7pm.
Get ready to get psyched out with a club set by Zen Mechanics. The artistic name for Dutchman Wouter Thomassesn, the experienced DJ fuses trance, progressive, breaks and ambient elements to create a heady sound both soulful and dancefloor ready. Thursday, October 12, at ON42 at Media One Hotel, Dubai. Doors open at 9pm with tickets priced at Dh120. For details go email firstname.lastname@example.org / email@example.com
Fly Project and Akcent
Romania is fast establishing itself as one of the Europe’s hottest dance hubs. With the country winning the Best Nation title at the recent DJ Awards in Ibiza, this is a good time to hear what the fuss is about. The tech festival will close on Thursday with two of Bucharest’s finest, the MTV Europe nominated Fly Project and dance-pop artist Akcent. Conference begins at 10am on Thursday, October 12, while the show begins at 11pm. Tickets are Dh250 from dubai.platinumlist.net
