The Oasis of Dubai

Dubai is a city of extremes. Located in the middle of a bone-dry desert, the City of Gold offers beach fun, skiing, excursions to the rainforest and performances by the best DJs in the world.

One of the largest, richest and fastest growing cities in the United Arab Emirates, Dubai is living proof that money can buy you anything. It seems as if almost every week the skyline (which is even visible from space) gains yet another brand new skyscraper, super resort or theme park. The money – amassed mostly through the oil business – has transformed Dubai into a dazzling metropolis of glitter and glamour, where practically anything goes. From skiing, tanning and sipping cocktails at the beach, to shopping and screaming your lungs out in the world’s fastest rollercoaster: there is an ‘oasis’ for everyone in the heart of the Arabian Desert.

Clubs in Dubai

Most of Dubai is brand new. However, the old city centre has remained ‘untouched’ and boasts some pieces of exquisite Arab architecture, plus remnants of historical fortresses. The residents of Dubai hail from around the globe, and as a result, the city still lacks a signature music ‘scene’. But considering 40 years ago the city didn’t have a single skyscraper, this could change overnight. And even so, you can now already find several great music hotspots. Check out these 3:

Meydan Grandstand,
Al Meydan Road
