Pharrell joins line-up for New Year’s Eve bash in Dubai

It’s fair to say that come New Year’s Eve, Dubai will be the happiest place on the planet. That might have something to do with the fact that Pharrell Williams, following his Formula 1 performance in the capital, is returning to town at the top of the year to headline the star-studded #DXBNYE concert taking place at Meydan Racecourse.

The multiple Grammy award winner is just one of a handful of artists set to take part in the show that will be broadcast live to more than 130 countries. The incredible line-up will also feature rising pop funk star Charli XCX, currently on the top of the charts with her infectious anthem Boom Clap following a wildly successful collaboration with Iggy Azalea on Fancy.

British trance DJ Paul Oakenfold, one of the most respected EDM musicians around, will also join the bill alongside acclaimed Tomorrowland duo Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike. Ibiza legend Seb Fontaine will also be spinning behind the decks during the eight-hour event.

Making a return to the stage will be hip-hop heavyweight Busta Rhymes, sans his signature dreadlocks. The New York rapper, best known for hits like Pass the Courvoisier and What’s It Gonna Be?! featuring Janet Jackson, is set to release his tenth studio in the coming months.

Guests can also expect some explosive dance moves when rapper Sky Blu - one-half of the group LMFAO - gives fans a taste of his Party Rock Anthem. The dazzling annual fireworks display at the Burj Khalifa will also be within clear view for guests to enjoy. After all, everyone loves a good #party.

Tickets to #DXBNYE start at Dhs395 and are available from www.timeouttickets.com and Virgin Megastores. For details visit www.dxbnye.ae.
