We’re excited British dance act Rudimental will be playing at November’s Sandance alongside Jamiroquai and Get Lucky star Nile Rodgers. The quartet, who hail from Hackney, East London have scored two number-one hits in the UK and the band are guaranteed to rock Dubai. Guys, as your song goes, we Feel the Love for you!

Is the One Direction rumour about to become a reality? The band end their epic world tour in Oz this October and are allegedly planning a stop in the UAE for a bit of R’n’R! Niall Horan spilled to our columnist Kris Fade back in Feb, saying, “We’d love to come to Dubai, you’ll have to talk to the officials”, hinting that a gig was in the pipeline. Let it be true!

Wow! Now here’s a duo: Welsh soprano Katherine Jenkins and tenor José Carreras are performing together this October at the Du Arena. The Welsh stunner said: “I’ve not had a great opportunity to really delve into Abu Dhabi’s growing cultural society but I’m expecting to get a great insight through this show. Kath, we certainly can’t wait to see you! 

We’re heard on the grapevine that in-demand Swedish DJ Avicii, aka Tim Bergling (yes that really is his name), is making a return to our shores this October. The Wake Me Up producer will headline a new music festival in our region. We will be sure to keep you posted with further deets.

WIN! Hollywood A-lister John Travolta is heading to Dubai, and you could meet him! The qualified pilot, who is married to model Kelly Preston, will spend a week in the city from Monday. The Grease and Pulp Fiction star will be in town to promote Qantas airline, which launched services to Dubai earlier this year. He said: “I’ve been wanting to experience Dubai for many years now.” You and a friend could enjoy afternoon tea with John on Thursday 12 September at Jumeirah Zabeel Saray!
