Nostalgic 90s music is reaching a new inflection point in the capital city with the inaugural Sunset Music Festival. Touting seven hours of non-stop tunes, Abu Dhabi’s first sunset to night music festival can finally reveal the line-up of award-winning artists set to deliver whirlwind performances.
An Unmissable line-up
Britain’s most successful soul singer, Louise Gabrielle Bobb, is known simply as Gabrielle. The RnB sensation rose to fame with her debut single ‘Dreams’, topping the UK singles chart in 1993 and earning her a 1994 BRIT Award. Look forward to a power-packed performance as she renders some of her biggest hits – ‘Dreams’, ‘Out Of Reach’ and ‘Rise’.
American alternative hip-hop group Arrested Development revolutionised the world of hip-hop with lyrics of hope. This Grammy awarded group will come alive on the Zayed Sports City stage with their biggest hits – ‘Everyday People’, ‘Tennessee’ and ‘Mr Wendal’.
Renowned Snap producers, Luca Anzilotti and Michael Münzing, have written more than one chapter in the history of dance music. The German Eurodance duo are guaranteed to bring more than their international megahits ‘Rhythm is a Dancer’ and ‘The Power’ to Abu Dhabi.
A diverse group of musicians from South Africa Freshly Ground, made an impression on the world stage as the featured band in Shakira’s ‘Waka Waka’. Rife with their own songs, the group is sure to make the crowd sway with their smooth rhythms and hit song ‘Do Be Doo’.
Dubai-based multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Adam Baluch will kick off the festival with his rendition of some of the biggest hits from the 90s, and music from his feel-good debut EP ‘Answers to Questions’.
Fans can enjoy all of the headlining artists under the price of one ticket. The award-winning artists are sure to have people on their feet, singing along, while the open-air format is made complete with picnic blankets and great friends.
A wide variety of great value food and beverage outlets will also cater to every taste at the festival, as well as amply stocked beverage options for cooler refreshments. Participating F&B outlets include, The Sportsman’s Arms, Park Rotana, Costa Coffee and Ma’Plucker.
