The first One Big Friday of 2017 has arrived, and it’s not just going to be big… it’s going to be huge.

The event returns to Zero Gravity on Friday, February 24 with an international line-up headlined by Dutch DJ and producer Oliver Heldens. He’ll be joined by the soulful house sounds of Michael Calfan and respected DJ Norman Jay MBE, who is the co-founder of London’s popular dance music station KISS FM.

In 2013 Oliver Heldens’ 2013 track “Gecko” was picked up by Tiesto, who went on to sign the DJ and release the song the following year. Since then he’s grown from his breakthrough status into a big name on the dance music circuit. He’s now a regular at massive music festivals, playing the likes of Tomorrowland and Creamfields

He shares the One Big Friday line-up with Michael Calfan, who will bring some playful tracks to the poolside decks, with hits such as “Treasured Soul” and “Nobody Does It Better”. Finishing off the international bill is Norman Jay MBE, who is a highly respected name in the music scene for co-founding KISS FM, as well as being a popular DJ.

As ever, it’s a marathon of an event, spanning 15 hours. The festival-style vibe includes live cooking stations by the pool, allowing you to chill out during the day as the party gets louder towards nightfall.

It’s free entry before 7pm, so it’s well worth getting there early, and AED150 thereafter. You can buy advance tickets from For VIP tables call +971 4 399 0009 or +971 55 500 9111.
