Paul Van Dyk is coming to Dubai’s Coca-Cola Arena on August 19 as part of Dubai Summer Surprises.
The German DJ will bring part of his Shine Ibiza residency centre stage, promising fans in the UAE a unique and Ibiza-styled experience with Shine DXB.
Van Dyk has been a staple of the trance music scene since the mid-1990s. He was also one of the first artists to be nominated for a Grammy Award in the then-newly added category of Best Dance / Electronic album for his 2003 release Reflections.
He was also named the world’s topped DJ in 2005 and 2006 by DJ Mag in their annual Top 100 DJs ranking list. He's known for hits such as Let Go, For an Angel and White Lies.
Egyptian DJs and producers Aly & Fila have also been announced as part of the Shine DXB line-up. The duo, formed by Aly El Sayed Amr Fathalah and Fadi Wassef Naguib, achieved international recognition with their 2003 track Eye of Horus.
“Shine offers a world of opportunities, a hub to an international community, a place where we belong no matter where we’re from," said Van Dyk.
"The trance family is a global collective of positive, caring and fun-loving people – me and my fellow DJs, and the event organisers will go the extra mile to provide the best possible experience for them."
In accordance with guidelines set by the UAE government, the event will have a maximum capacity of 1,500 guests with all attendees required to be fully vaccinated to enter. Face masks will also be mandatory at all times. There will be strict social distancing regulations in place, too.
