It’s all going Pete Tong in Abu Dhabi

Legendary DJ set for Blue Marlin gig

Ibiza veteran and BBC Radio 1 DJ Pete Tong is coming to the UAE.

He will perform at Blue Marlin Ibiza UAE on February 16, alongside Yousef, who promises an acid house-style set. Frederick Stone and Aidin Karami complete the line-up.

Tong, 57, shot to fame in the UK in 1991 when his Essential Selection show began on Radio 1. He has worked as resident DJ in Ibiza’s Pacha nightclub from 2003-2007 as well as appearing at some of the biggest club nights in the world.

When a man so famous he has his own rhyming slang comes to town, you should probably put the date in your diary.

Free. Fri, Feb 16. Golden Tulip Al Jazira Hotels and Resort, Sheikh Zayed Road, Ghantoot, abu-dhabi.platinumlist.net or any Virgin Megastore in the UAE (056 113 3400).
