Dubai Design District’s three-day music bonanza
01 April, 2015
We don’t like to do things quietly in the UAE. That is why, perhaps, the inauguration of the new Dubai Design District – known as d3 – was never going to pass with a simple ribbon-cutting ceremony. Instead the trailblazing design hub – which sits in the shadows in Downtown Dubai and will offer a mix of office space, boutiques, workshops and studios – is launching with Meet d3, a huge three-day community celebration of art, design, fashion, food and music. It features an awe-inspiring bill of some of the hippest acts from across the region and beyond, kicking off tonight with John Newman and building to a crescendo of talent performing all day tomorrow and Saturday. And best of all, they are all completely free.
