NuraiFest is a brand new festival on a gorgeous private island in Abu Dhabi. One thing is for certain, there are few festivals that look better than this one. As soon as you arrive you can head to a white sand beach, lay back and soak up a warm hot sun and sip on some tasty cocktails.
At night, the same beach is a stunning place to stand and view the same sun sinking deep into the sea and turn the sky deep red, orange and yellow. Between this especial moments are many more, of course, once you start to dance. For us, we start to get down to some hip hop and r&b on the Ginger Mermaid Pool stage right by a lush bit of water that is welcoming to dive into when it get too hot. It’s around 8pm when the serious house vibes start coming with the likes of AudioFly serving up some driving tech house on the Smoking Pineapple Beach Club for a tribal sunset party.
If you have the energy there is even an afterparty at The Villa with Audiofly again playing, this time a more loose and winky selection from 3am to 4am that sees lots of locals get down. All the stage are decorate with lush greenery and flora and fauna that make it feel even more like paradise.
There are also lost of places to chill out along the beach decorated with fairylights and foliage, and the sound system are not only crisp and clear but nice and loud because of the fat we’re on an island so there are no real restrictions. The staff at the festival are all very friendly, as are the locals, who make the whole thing an even more relaxing and unforgettable affair.
After filling up in lots of lovely food, we begin to get into the groove with a Mykonian Party at the Smoking Pineapple Beach Club. M.A.N.D.Y. bring the darkness for a couple of hours before Steve Lawler and Tiga then close out in style. Essentialy, this is perfect party in paradise and one you need to check out.
