Highsnobiety is excited to reveal that London-born virtuoso Blood Orange will head to Dubai to perform a headline set at Sole DXB, presented by PUMA. Highsnobiety is an exhibitor at the event and an official media partner.
Blood Orange joins a stellar music line-up that includes Nas, Giggs, Slowthai and — also just announced — Awful Records tour de force ABRA.
As Blood Orange, Dev Hynes has gone from cult British indie musician to one of the world’s most widely-celebrated acts, boasting a collaborators list that includes Solange, A$AP Rocky, Skepta, and more.
His most recent full-length project, Negro Swan, was met with almost universal praise, and will set the tone for what is sure to be a memorable headline slot at Sole DXB 2018.
Following Blood Orange’s headline set on Friday, December 7, hip-hop legend Nas makes his UAE debut, closing out the event on the night of Saturday, December 8. Prior to that, London’s hardest, the one and only Hollowman, Giggs, hits the stage on Friday in a set presented by adidas Originals. Cult jazz favorite Masego and Atlanta native ABRA will play sets in association with PUMA and Reebok Classics, respectively.
Returning to the esteemed Dubai Design District (d3), Sole DXB will boast performances by world-renowned musicians and a selection of creative, forward-thinking guest brands and exhibitors, including adidas, Early Retirement, PUMA, 5IVE PILLARS, and, of course, Highsnobiety.
Sole DXB takes place across three-nights and two-days on December 6, 7 and 8, 2018 at d3.
