Sub-Sonic Live in Dubai: Jagwar Ma | Zahed Sultan | Andy Buchan

Sub-Sonic Live is part of Fred Perry's Subculture music initiative promoting live music and club culture.

Over the past year, there have been two Sub-Sonic Live events (which I've sadly missed) and the third one will take place on Thursday, 23rd October, which I don't intend to miss.

The thrid edition of Sub-Sonic Live in Dubai will feature Jagwar Ma, Zahed Sultan, Andy Buchan

Fred Perry is bringing Sub-Sonic Live back to the city on October 23rd, with headline act Jagwar Ma. The Sydney-born, London-based alternative/electronica 3-piece will be making their debut performance in Dubai.

Sharing the stage with Jagwar Ma, is award winning Kuwati Zahed Sultan known for his eclectic boundary breaking beats, taking inspiration from the likes of Radiohead, Massive Attack, and Bjork. 

The third act to play at Sub-Sonic this year is Dubai's very own Andy Buchan. Award winning British-born Andy will keep the crowd going with his latest selections of indie and dance beats.

Tickets are limited with only 500 available on a first come first serve basis and available at and selected Fred Perry shops (early bird tickets AED 100 and at the door AED 150). 

If, like me,  you've been missing music gigs in Dubai that do not feature mainstream acts, this one's for you.   

Here's what to expect.

Andy Buchan

Andy Buchan is on of my favourite Dubai based DJs. He launched Loaded a few years ago (currently on hiatus), so excited to see him behind the decks again.
