Popular grassy concert venue Dubai Media City Amphitheater is set to go even greener – with news of a huge concert-come-party to mark St Patrick’s Day. McGettigan’s and DGT Events present the BIGGEST Paddy’s Day Party in the Middle East at the Dubai Media City Amphitheatre on 16th March!
It's the ultimate celebration of all things Irish, featuring a full day of live music in the sunshine, award-winning food and beverages from the McGettigan's team. After a whopper inaugural year, it's fair to say everyone was crossing their fingers that McGettigan's would do it again...so here it is …the party is back and the lineup is very impressive.
The Irish population of the UAE has soared in the last few years with many people, particularly those in Dubai, finding work in their chosen professions. It's very likely that you know someone that's living in the Middle East and if they're looking for something to do on St Patrick's Day, this gig sounds perfect. Headlining the event will be Kodaline, a rock band who’ve had two number one albums back home in Ireland. Fans can expect them to perform some of their hit singles, including ‘Give Me a Minute’, ‘High Hopes’ and ‘Raging’. Also on the line-up are rock band The Coronas, indie group Little Hours, U2 tribute band Joshua Tree, and the Dubai-based band The Gentlemen Bar Stewards.
Dublin fourpiece Kodaline is one of the most successful young bands to come out of the country in recent years. Originally called 21 Demands, Kodaline came third in an Irish TV talent show and followed up with a single that became the first independent track to top the Irish Single Chart.
And in 2012, a newly named Koadline released both their debut EP, The Kodaline EP, from which 'All I Want' was selected as Radio 1's Fearne Cotton's Record of the Week and also featured in an episode of Grey's Anatomy!
Since then the band have release two studio albums, 'In A Perfect World' (2013) and 'Coming Up For Air' (2015) which peaked at number four in the UK Album Chart. The band is currently working on their third album, having released 'Brother' from it in June last year.
Definitely Dubai needs no introduction to The Coronas! With four double platinum albums, a slew of top ten singles, sold out arenas and a legion of devoted fans behind them 'The Coronas' have earned their title as one of Ireland’s best loved and hardest working bands. Headliners at the 2017 edition of The Ultimate Paddy's Day Party, they have played at least five times in Dubai over the last six years.
Graham Knox (bass), Danny O’Reilly (vocals, guitar), Conor Egan (drums) and Dave McPhillips (guitar) first burst into the Irish consciousness with their debut single 'Decision Time' in 2007. The Coronas had released their debut album 'Heroes or Ghosts' in 2007 to huge acclaim and had three hit singles in the charts; the last of which 'San Diego Song' set Irish radio ablaze and propelled The Coronas into the spotlight. Their fifth studio album 'Trust The Wire' released in June last year is a pure slice of ecstatic rock, the boys had such good fun last year that they are returning to support Kodaline this year.
It's the ultimate celebration of all things Irish, featuring a full day of live music in the sunshine, award-winning food and beverages from the McGettigan's team, and a range of live entertainment. Traditional Irish dancers will also be one of the highlights of the event.
There'll also be a dedicated kids area, with bouncy castles and face painting, and all guests are encouraged to wear something green. All McGettigan's are famous for great Irish food and The Ultimate Paddy's Party will be no different with a Brunch Ticket offered for AED 495 with food and drink served between 1pm and 4pm.
The Bonnington Hotel JLT is also offering a hotel package which includes two tickets and drop off at the concert for AED 799 per night.
