Groove on the Grass: What to expect at this year's festival in Dubai
When it was announced in December last year that Underworld – British electro band responsible for hits such as Two Months Off, Always Loved A Film and Beautiful Burnout – are scheduled to headline at the festival, we were too caught up in Christmas chaos to get truly excited. But now that Groove on the Grass is right around the corner, we’re edging towards a state of hysteria over the EDM festival.
Since starting out as a group of six blokes from Cardiff, Wales in the ’80s, Underworld have come a long way. From reaching mainstream fame in the ‘90s to playing colossal festivals such as Coachella and Glastonbury over the years, the band (now consisting of Karl Hyde and Rick Smith) have been on quite the musical journey before landing in Dubai. Known for their very visual performances and high energy, we’re more than willing to hand out AED295 to see them in action. But they’re not the only artists we’re counting down the days to see.
Radio Slave (aka German DJ and producer, Matt Edwards pictured to your left) will be hitting up one of the stages, and Leftfield, Monoloc and Sebastian Mullaert are promising to bring the party, too. Of course, there’ll be plenty more going on over at the Emirates Golf Club where the festival will be held. Keeping vague on the details (oh, the intrigue!) we’ve been teased interactive events, live art and pop-up shops across the venue.
If you haven’t already got passes and you fancy spending the weekend grooving on the grass, then lucky for you as tickets are still available.
When: Friday, February 8, 5pm - 3am
Where: Emirates Golf Club
