A new music, culture and arts event is coming to Dubai in November, and you’re not going to want to miss it.
Breakout DXB will take place at Rove Downtown on November 6 – and it’s set to be “an event for the community by the community”, supporting independent musicians, artists, fans and the industry.
Get ready for a cool line-up of home-grown talent starring Layla Kardan, Hamdan Al Abri, Lobito Brigante, Big Hass, and Charl Chaka, with more names to be announced soon.
The event will take place both indoors and out, throughout the evening of Friday November 6.
As well as live music, Breakout DXB will feature visual art installations, exclusive film screenings, gaming competitions, and other immersive experiences, along with tasty food pop-ups and market stalls.
There will also be panel discussions, workshops and talks. Tickets cost Dhs249, and include an F&B voucher worth Dhs49.
Breakout DXB is the brainchild of Lobito Brigante and Dan Bolton, who have partnered with Rove Hotels to bring local talent to the stage with a focus on working together to help the music industry in Dubai.
“Over the past decade, I’ve always contributed culturally to the UAE, and now more than ever the music and arts community needs support, so that the UAE can continue to nurture and attract the best music, art and cultural talent. Running this event and events like it is an important step in supporting our creative economy,” said Lobito Brigante, DJ and co-creator of Breakout DXB.
“Breakout DXB is about coming together safely in support of our home-grown arts and culture scene, and to show the world that Dubai is open and ready to run and support cultural events like ours, adhering to the highest safety standards. We hope this will encourage more organisers to create safe experiences that empower our creative community.”
Bolton added: “So many industries have faced unprecedented challenges as a result of this global pandemic, and the events and entertainment industry is no exception. Musicians, artists and creatives have found themselves out of work over the past seven months because of pandemic restrictions.
“Breakout DXB is all about supporting these independent talents and giving the industry the kick-start it needs to recover, while taking every step necessary to work closely with our international health and safety partner Gallowglass and event partner Rove Hotels, to create a safe, controlled and fun environment for fans to rediscover the magic of a live event.”
Throughout the event, all social distancing and health and safety guidelines will be adhered to.
