Pitbull, Jennifer Lopez and Nicki Minaj

Before we moved here, we knew that Dubai is not just a city in the Middle East…we knew that is very cosmopolitan and very fresh (maybe not during the summer months, if you know what I mean ūüėČ )… But what we didn’t expect was the number of concerts organized here… And not just any concert, Madonna just finished in Abu Dhabi and couple of weeks later Pitbull was here, with his “very own song” ( See parody below from the “Key of Awesome” group )

Now we just realised that JLo, Jennifer Lopez, Jenny from the block…is here… I mean she is coming to the UAE in November… You can check out the details here, on her official website… This is the show what she “threw” ¬†on the America Music Awards… Not bad, huh? I think worth seeing it…

And if this is still not enough…Nicki Minaj has announced, tweeted that she will have a concert here in October…

It looks like October will be a cool month… The DXb Music Festival¬†will open on 5th October, in¬†Al Badia Festival City…with AfroJack, Far East Movement and many more…

A week ¬†later Sandance is opening, 12th October…
