Woohoo! UAE’s homegrown music and arts festival is back for its seventh year and the lineup looks better than ever.
Presenting the headliners!
First off, UK dance music duo Orbital will be taking over at the main stage, joined by veteran house DJ James Zabiela and a surprise artist (we’ll keep you updated on that). Moreover, at the Green Arena, it will be all about deep swinging techno and haunted trippy house as artists Dewalta and Mike Shannon will be performing. They’ll be joined by a supporting act from East End Dubs and a local artist to be announced.
Save the date: 5th September
The ticket sales release date has been revealed: Wednesday, 5th September. We’ll keep you posted on the ticket pricing and ‘surprise’ artist announcements. The festival will take place at Emirates Golf Club, Sheikh Zayed Road.
Last edition was headlined by Maribou State
British electronic duo Maribou State made their Dubai debut at Groove On The Grass’ sixth season last May with main stage acts including Apparat, Max Cooper and HVOB. Whereas, the fifth edition was headlined by Grammy-nominated DJ Bonobo, taking over the main stage with an eight-peace band for his live performance.
Platform for local acts
Groove On The Grass established itself as a platform for emerging DJs in UAE and in the region, including the likes of Raxon, one of Dubai’s electronic music pioneers and DJ Sam Farsio, one of Iran’s dominant producers and a regular on the roster.
Groove On The Grass’ seventh edition is happening on Friday, 28th September from 5pm. For more information, check out their website and event page.
