Summer might be gone, but things are hotting up at one of Abu Dhabi's biggest party hubs.

Blue Marlin Ibiza UAE is welcoming back a huge live music festival and it sounds like a winner already.

Burning Beach: The Festival returns on Friday October 26, and partygoers are urged to dress up in their craziest outfits and dance the day away.

There'll be a whole host of great DJs, banging tunes, art installations and food outlets too.

The all-day beach festival is known for its bizarre dress code, with its past events seeing guests turn up in feathers, cowboy hats, spooky outfits (it's nearly Halloween, after all) and body paint.

In fact, the party spot says "there are no limits to the imagination" when it comes to dressing up, so here's your chance to get creative.

Kicking off at 1pm all the way through until midnight, the electronic festival’s line up for the day include headliners DJ Tennis with his chilled beats.

Portuguese electronic musician Trikk, some deep-house vibes from Hyenah and, last but by no means least, Henry Saiz & Band with their booming beats.

Also taking to the stage are local favourites Frederick Stone, Michka, Aidin Karami, Mario Bazouri, Maks, Bachir Salloum and Sam Farsio.

The venue will have three stages for all the live acts, two swimming pools to lounge in along with live art throughout the venue.

Entry is completely free, but if you’re looking for you own little spot with a group of eight, you can book a table for Dhs8,000, or even lounge and take in the sun on a beach bed for Dhs3,500.

Still in the area for Saturday? Blue Marlin Ibiza UAE also has a Saturday brunch from 1pm until 4pm.

Speaking of dressing up, Halloween is the perfect time to do that, and Abu Dhabi has plenty of places celebrating the spooky occasion.

Let your imagination run wild and prepare to dress up to impress.

Free entry, Dhs3,500 (beach beds), Dhs8,000 (table for eight). Fri Oct 26, 1pm-midnight. Golden Tulip Al Jazira Hotels and Resort Ghantoot, www.bluemarlinibiza-uae.com (056 113 3400).
