AS USUAL WE'VE got a truck-load of live talent coming to Dubai. The coming autumn and winter months mean there will be more EDM, parties and rock and/or roll than you can shake a stick at.

Here's what we're most looking forward to.

Rockin' ON
WHO: Kaiser Chiefs, Travis and The Charlatans
WHERE: Dubai Media City Amphitheatre
WHEN: November 11
WHY?: Ah, nostalgia. Remember those carefree summer days between 2002 and 2004? All three bands (well the Kaisers and Travis at least) were at the height of their fame. The boy band craze had disappeared and it looked as if guitar music was the future. While the rock love-in didn't last these English and Scottish bands continue to entertain and they'll be belting out their hits right here on our doorstep. What a treat,  
EXPECT: Sing, Flowers in the Window, Why Does it Always Rain on Me? 

Get down
WHO: Rich Homie Quan 
WHERE: VIP Room Dubai
WHEN: October 20
WHY?: A cult favourite is headlining the club's NYCTODXB night this week and we love it. 
Rich Homie Quan was artistically influenced by dirty South Rap including artists such as Young Jeezy, Gucci Mane, T.I., Lil Wayne, and Outkast. Catch his raw beats this Thursday night, but make sure to book as it'll be packed. 
EXPECT: Type Of Way, Walk Thru and Blah Blah Blah

House tunes
WHO: Swedish DJ duo, Axwell & Ingrosso of Swedish House Mafia. 
WHERE: Meydan, Dubai
WHEN: New Year's Eve
WHY? The party promises a buzzing beginning to the New Year as the DJs take to the excellent and not too crowded (traffic-wise) Meydan stage. With the Swedish House Mafia splitting in 2013, this may be one of only a few chances to catch the original members up on stage together. 
EXPECT: Can't Hold Us Down, Something New and Sun is Shining.
