29 Oct 2012

The Dogfather is back in town to ring in 2013!

Bring 2013 in with a bang with Snoop Dogg (aka Snoop Lion) live at the third Atelier/Festival in Dubai! We had just got over the excitement of rappers descending on Dubai for the last festival, but now we can hardly contain out excitement for Snoop’s trip!

He was last in the UAE in May 2011 where he rocked Yas Island, dressed in full national dress, so we can't wait to see what he comes up with this time. Other huge acts joining Snoop on stage at the fest are Faithless (Live PA + DJ Set), Gorillaz Sound System, Armand Van Helden, Inna and

For now, here's Snoop dishing on songs that make him rock

Which song makes you feel happy?
Rick James’ Super Freak. He was the greatest. He knew how to party and how to make music. He was an inspiration to me and he didn’t disappoint. Seeing him in love with music made me know I can keep going.

Is there a song that can make you wag your tail?
Pass Out by Tinie Tempah. He came and performed it with me at Glastonbury and it was off the chain. He’s dope!
