Provocateur,  Four seasons Resort, Dubai
The Cocodrills will be playing Provocateur on Friday night too. We'll leave it to their promo material to introduce them: 'Where they're from or how they grew up is entirely irrelevant. When they started off and what their influences were are inconsequential. Listing the popular venues they've played or name-dropping artists that support them would be disingenuous. This is because a short anecdotal paragraph loaded with DJ/producer cliches wouldn't do their style, or their sound, any justice. The Cocodrills (Christian 'Pridef' Diaz, Adam Cruz) pride themselves on creating a unique musical experience, which can only be just that; experienced. But make sure to leave your pretence at the door 'cause you won't find any bulls*** at one of their parties; only funky grooves, positive vibes and rampant debauchery. And while they don't claim to have reinvented the wheel, they do like to take that wheel down the road of sound for a ride so wild it wakes up the next morning with no tread smelling of burnt rubber and a wondrous sense of "let's do that again!" Act accordingly.'

Billionaire Mansion, Taj Hotel, Dubai
Florida's finest rapper Ace Hood will be celebrating his birthday at the Billionaire's Club. Get in your 'Bugatti' and head down to the club this Friday and you're sure to be will be feeling on 'Top Of The World'.
What's so good about it?: Ace Hood will make you feel good.

&Lounge, The Address, Dubai Marina
Think 'cool' and your brain box may conjure up the image of someone in Ray-Ban sunglasses. A few notes from an indie band may also permeate the daydream.
Ray-Ban is capitalising on this and also celebrating bravery this weekend as it launches its new campaign #ITTAKESCOURAGE in Dubai with an evening of live music and shows of extreme bravery. On Friday evening the band Teleferik will be headlining the event at &Lounge at The Address Dubai Marina.
All attendees will receive a padlock or a key on a chain upon arrival and be encouraged to approach others to find their match by sparking up a conversation with a stranger to see if they are a 'lock and key' match.

What's so good about it?: Live indie music and a search for a new friend - perfect.
