Tiger Translate, the touring festival of all things arty, musical and filmic sponsored by the well-known Singapore drinks brand, hits Dubai this year, one of three cities that will host the international event in 2013 following last year's New Zealand event.
Music fans may have already checked out the launch event at Media One Hotel in December, which featured members of LCD Sound System and Bugz in the Attic. A second opportunity to attend a rare evening which is unlikely to feature Dubai staples such as Black Eyed Peas and Katie Perry has now mercifully arisen with the Tiger Translate-sponsored Global Funk event at The Music Room on Thursday Jan 10th. Ram Records supremo Andy C will be testing the venue’s bassbins witht he sort of bone-shaking drum'n'bass that comes to Dubai only once every couple of years, if we're lucky, alongside MC Lowqui and local guests.
Fans of the art and film side of things can keep up to date on the Tiger Translate Dubai Facebook page - www.facebook.com/tiger.translate.7, while a video that was made for the launch of this year’s event is available for viewing at vimeo.com/53829896
