6 things to do in Dubai this weekend



The weekend has landed, and it brings with it, Piknic Electronik, Sebastian Ingrosso, Gilles Peterson, new movies and a cool pop-up market.

Sebastian Ingrosso
The guy who used to be one third of Swedish House Mafia is playing Dubai this weekend, as we were the first to reveal. And, no, we’re not going to stop telling people it. He now collaborates with his old SHM mate Axwell, who played at Provocateur in November.
When: Thursday February 4
Where: Provocateur, Four Seasons Resort, +971 55 211 8222

Red Bull Music Academy Club Nights
This Friday, Gilles Peterson will DJ at China Grill, alongside host and MC, Earl Zinger. Saturday sees instrumentalists Dorian Concept Trio perform at Tribeca in JBR.  They are here as part of Red Bull’s Music Academy, which allows talented musicians from the region to learn from the best in the business – the classes are invite-only, but you can still get involved via these two great club nights which are open to the public, and are sure to pull in the crowds.
When: February 5 and 6
Where: China Grill (AED100) and Tribeca (free),

Arjit Singh in concert
Having started his career as a reality TV star on programmes in his native India, Arijit Singh has become a genuine star of the contemporary Indian music scene, winning the Best Male Playback Singer at the 59th Filmfare Awards. After appearing in the likes of Fame Gurukul, which he didn’t win, and then 10 Ke 10 Le Gaye Dil, which he did, he built his credibility with songs like 2013’s “Tum Hi Ho”.
When: February 5
Where: Dubai World Trade Centre,

Piknic Electronik
Back again for more Saturday afternoon action, Piknic Electronik gets into its twice-monthly groove. Jan Blomqvist and Miss Melera do deck duty.
When: Saturday February 6
Where: The Address Montgomerie,

When: Saturday February 6, 11am to 6pm
Where: Reform Social & Grill, +971 4

The Finest Hours (PG15)
Bringing cinematic life to what the trailer brands as the “most daring coastguard rescue in US history”, a real-life incident that unfolded off the east coast of America in the 1950s. Casey Affleck, back in blockbuster mode after a string of method-y indies, heads up a ragtag crew of seamen who come a cropper when their oil tanker is caught in the middle of a Perfect Storm-esque nor’easter and splits in two. Fortunately, hope is rekindled via the nautical nerve and sinew of coastguard Bernie Webber (Chris Pine), who – in somewhat predictable fashion – leaves a budding romance back on land to make it his do-or-die mission to save the stranded souls. All-American heroism laid bare.
In cinemas February 4
