American musician, DJ and producer Baauer, the man behind global dance phenomenon Harlem Shake, joins the starry lineup at the festival

A whole lot of shaking's headed our way – joining the lineup at My Music X in Dubai is Harlem Shake man Frank Baauer. The American musician, DJ and producer of the top track that's become a dance phenomenon the world over is the latest artist confirmed to be performing at Atlantis The Palm on Thursday 28 March as part of the three day music fest (27 to 30 March). Cher Lloyd, Akon, Example and DJ Wire, are among other acts who'll be there.

In case you've been living under a rock, you'll know that Baauer’s Harlem Shake (first launched in May 2012) went viral around the world in February 2013 when a YouTube video of the dance was created and got over 300,000 views in 24 hours!

With the 30-second video featuring people dancing to the track, Baauer’s Harlem Shake reached number one on the US Billboard Hot 100, New Zealand and Australia, and number three in the UK.

My Music X has also launched
a competition where creating your own funky Harlem Shake video and posting it on
could win you an exclusive meet and greet with Baauer as well as the chance to perform the dance at the event as he plays the track.   

We'll see how it does live with its creator in Dubai – get a look at the moves right here!
