90s chart toppers Lighthouse Family joins Party in the Park’s impressive festival line-up
September 17, 2019
With a two-day line up at Dubai Media City Amphitheatre on October 31st and November 1st that already boasts festival favourites Fatboy Slim, The Kooks and The Verve’s legendary Richard Ashcroft, this year’s Party In The Park proudly announces a third international artist to complete a fantastic Friday of live music, in addition to local support from a selection of Dubai’s finest musicians.
Performing for the first time in the UAE on Friday, 1st of November will be the British band Lighthouse Family, who rose to fame in the early 1990s with their debut album Ocean Drive, which went platinum six times and remained in the charts for a total of three years. Expect to hear silky smooth classics at sunset from the five piece band as the sun goes down, including Lifted, Ocean Drive and High, in addition to tracks from their latest album Blue Sky In Your Hand, released in July this year, 18 years after their last album.
That’s not all. Live music will be drifting across Media City Amphitheatre from 2pm with a string of support acts including local favourites The Boxtones and Dubai duo The Supernovas. The Boxtones are Dubai’s multi-award winning Scottish & Canadian rock/pop band signed to record label giants Universal Music. They’ve performed at every Party in the Park thus far, alongside the likes of Liam Gallagher, Stereophonics, Kaiser Chiefs and Travis.
Another talented duo that will get your feet tapping in the sunshine is The Supernovas. They’re inspired by folk and rock, playing a range of instruments throughout their set. The duo is led by Sean Gavin, a gifted violinist and guitarist with a unique soulful voice. He’s played on some of the biggest stages in America and has headlined the Hunter Mountain Music Festival as well making appearances at the Citi Field Mets Stadium and Croke Park Stadium in Ireland.
Sharing the stage with Fatboy Slim on Halloween night on Thursday 31st October will be prolific Dubai dance music producers and Dance FM radio presenters Hollaphonic and one of the city’s best-loved DJs Chris Wright.
Throughout the day you’ll also find street entertainers performing at various spots around the festival site, so make sure you explore every inch! It’s also happy hour at all the bars from 2-6pm making the afternoon pocket friendly too!
Party In The Park wouldn’t be complete without plenty of food and beverage spots and family friendly play areas where the kids can enjoy themselves throughout the day. A market of artisan craft stalls will be selling everything from handmade jewellery to Boho fashion to flower headbands, and a mouth-watering selection of quirky food trucks will be serving something for every taste. Last but not least, an elevated ‘Park View’ platform ticket will offer an awesome view across the entire area, as well as unlimited food and beverages on both days.
