After Dark Series

After each day, The Art Bar, located on Fort Island transformed into a night of music and dance. Titled ‘Art Dubai After Dark’, the programme showcased some of the best up-and-coming DJs from around the world and locally, delivering great vibes throughout the night. 

The 2024 edition was curated by Megatronic, a cultural producer, DJ, and music enthusiast known for her expertise in global conversations and musical trends. Megatronic has curated events and venues such as XP Music Futures, The Guild, The Nice Guy, Femme Fest, Kenzo, as well as previous ‘Art Dubai After Dark’ events, among others.

The After Dark series, part of the after-party line-up, drew inspiration from the visual identity for Art Dubai 2024, reflecting the rich tapestry of regions and cultures from the Global South: Africa, Latin America, South Asia and the Middle East. The programme was an exploration of the rich heritage and contemporary musical and dance practices, celebrating the roots of people that comprise the DNA of Dubai.

The performances took place from 28 February to 2 March at The Art Bar from 9pm to 2am.
