Now this is music to our ears – musical mega stars Blackstreet and Dru Hill are ready to take over Abu Dhabi – for the hotly-anticipated return of a huge outdoor entertainment extravaganza.

Grammy Award winning group Blackstreet – who won a legion of fans with dance floor-filling smash hits such as their number one track No Diggity, Don’t Leave Me and Before I Let You Go – will be sharing the spotlight at the Sunset Music Festival at Zayed Sports City with R&B favourites Dru Hill next month.

The talented Baltimore-based quartet are sure to wow the fun-seeking crowds with their impressive catalogue of toe-tapping tunes such as These Are The Times and Never Make a Promise during a spectacular six-hour musical marathon.
The Sunset Music Festival was never going to just ride off into the sunset after a dazzling debut in 2017 and this year’s line-up looks like being an even bigger success on Friday, February 16.

Music lovers can enjoy an al fresco festival, featuring a fleet of food trucks and blankets on the grass for a fun, festival atmosphere.

Held as the sun drops behind the national stadium, the event looks set to provide an array of unforgettable sights and sounds.

The festival will also strike a chord with supporters of the UAE’s music scene, as local talents such as Dubai’s rising rap star Moh Flow and hip-hop favourites will be on hand to warm up revellers for the big night of live music.

Barry Bremner, general manager of Zayed Sports City, said: “With another strong line-up of talent, we’re looking forward to building on the success of the previous Sunset Music Festival edition, which itself was one of the highest-rated events we’ve ever organised. We’ve arranged some fantastic performers with wide appeal to guarantee a memorable night and are looking forward to welcoming even more people to enjoy this year’s event.”

Tickets for Sunset Music Festival are priced at Dhs195 but can be snapped up for the early bird price of Dhs150 until January 16.

Dhs150 (until Jan 16), Dhs195 (after Jan 16). Fri Feb 16 5pm-11pm. Zayed Sports City, www.sunsetmusicfestival.ae
