Music fans of Dubai, you’re in for a treat. Not only is local Al Barsha spot Maxx Music Bar getting a swanky new look, it’s also throwing a fantastic festival to get you grooving.

Located in Citymax Hotel Al Barsha at The Mall, the now revamped spot is known for its numerous live acts from Dubai’s most talented home-grown musicians, and its special three-day party is looking no different.

Taking place from Thursday August 1 to Saturday August 3, ‘Maxx Stock’ will feature a host of popular local talent, including The Distillers and DJ Mars on the first day of the event.
