Base, d3

BASE nightclub

Dubai’s newest club has already given us a delicious taste of what it can do, with big names including Axwell and 50 Cent.

This weekend, the club is bringing down Busta Rhymes to perform on Thursday night and Jeremih on Friday night! Its closing party isn’t pulling any punches either – headliner is on/off Kardashian beau rapper Tyga.

No charge to hear chartstormers like ‘Rack City’, ‘Faded’ and ‘Feel Me’ and as the music fades out, we’re left wondering what A-listers will be down for d3 next season.

Friday, 19th May. Free entry. 10pm till 3am. Bookings@BaseDubai.com / 055 313 4999
