Prepare for another blast from the past Dubai, the Vengaboys are coming. The top pop group from the 90s, known for global hits such as We’re going to Ibiza and Boom, Boom, Boom, Boom! will take fans back in time at the second Mixtape Rewind, along with German disco group Boney M (Rivers of Babylon, Rasputin), Swedish musician Dr Alban (It’s My Life, Sing Hallelujah), British electronic music group N-Trance, known for their hit covers, and returning band, the German Eurodance group Snap! (The Power, Rhythm is a Dancer).

To be held at the Emirates Golf Club in Dubai on January 17, organisers say the event will be all about some retro fun.

“Mixtape Rewind is a feel good concert; it’s all about reminiscing and having a good time. No fluff just a good a time,” said Mario Zakhary the managing director of Sundance LIVE. “This season we wanted to make sure the lineup represents a diverse style of music and artists of the two decades. [The event’s] focus is tapping into great memories and creating an experience to remember.”

Last year’s concert featured performances by American dance pop band No Mercy, Jenny from Swedish pop group Ace of Base, Trinidian singer Haddaway and German duo La Bouche, among others.

“Having grown up in the 80s and 90s myself, I like the back-to-retro direction of new music, car designs, fashion and art in general,” added Zakhary.

Tickets, priced at Dh295, will go on sale soon. For updates, go to facebook.com/SundanceLive
