Here we go again: the region’s biggest electronic music and art event Groove on the Grass is back with its seventh-year roll call of performers. Drawing the map for Dubai’s electronic music scene, Groove on the Grass is a leading platform for local and international DJs since its launch in 2012. Dance in a trance with this year’s VIP line-up featuring the likes of David August, Redshape, Gigi Masin and more, while enjoying a range of activities and pop-up art installations in the open field at Emirates Golf Club.
At just 25, David August has become a standout name in Germany’s electro-dance music scene, and he’s returning after a yearlong hiatus to headline the event with mixes from his latest album, D’Angelo. Watch out for Miami’s counterculture poster boy Danny Daze and his experimental mixes that take a cue from ‘90s Dutch electro and Detroit techno scenes, along with a faceless yet unforgettable performance by Redshape, a persona developed by prolific music producer Sebastian Kramer. The artist has released half a dozen tracks in the past year and continues to impress audiences with his immense talents.
A new part of this year’s line-up is icon Gigi Masin, whose career was a precursor to a generation of Italian radio DJs and ambient music. Masin has been part of the EDM universe since the mid-‘80s and been sampled by the likes of Bjork, Nujabes, Moomin and more. Last but not least, catch Dubai’s music scene veteran Chloe, whose music personality transcends club and techno with inventive tracks that have redefined music for an entire generation.
