Gianluca Vacchi
Italian DJ Gianluca Vacchi – the man behind the “GV lifestyle” – is coming to Dubai for the first time, headlining a slick party for the city’s well-groomed hedonists. The dresscode (yes, dresscode) is described as “smart elegant”, which we imagine will be plenty of sockless shoes and figure-hugging cocktail dresses.
When: Thursday, August 31
Where: Billionaire Mansion, Taj Hotel

Vibe Series with Eddie Richards
Influential publication Mixmag once called Eddie Richards “Britain’s godfather of house and techno” and it’s impossible to chart the history of the genre without running across his name. Indeed, he established the first ever DJ agency and helped shape the current tech-house scene. Support from James What.
When: Friday, September 1
Where: Radisson Blu, Dubai Media City

Plus/Minus with DJ Gunther
Lebanese born DJ and producer, Gunther is known to be one of the most influential figures in Middle East’s electronic music scene; most notably known for his seven-year residency at Beirut’s B018 club. He’s played alongside the likes of John Digweed, Richie Hawtin, Sasha, Carl Cox and James Zabiela.
When: Friday, September 1
Where: Bridgewater Tavern, JW Marriott Marquis

The Annual JamDown All White Party
The Annual JamDown All White Party is being hosted by Kenya’s DJ Kalonje, whose fame has been steadily growing since he emerged on the scene in 2007. He will be joined by internationally renowned DJ Creme De La Crème, also from Kenya, as well as DJ Ras Dru. We reckon this might be one of the parties of the summer.
When: Friday, September 1
Where: The Music Room Dubai
