Friday, March 11 from 10 am to 11:30 pm
EDEN Beach Club, The Rixos, The Palm, 99573 Dubai, United Arab Emirates

From underground classics like Texi, Get Wild and Don’t Say A Word, to scoring international chart toppers, like PATT (Party All The Time) and The One, Sharam’s musical credits are as dynamic as his DJ sets. His production collaborations include artists such as Kid Cudi, Shakira, Patsy Cline, Chris Martin and Daniel Bedingfield just to name a few. He seamlessly navigates between hypnotic underground sets rooted in his rich history of house and techno, while entertaining younger dance enthusiasts of today with laser like focus and dedication to quality. His motto remains ‘entertain while educate’. His sound is Ibiza in Vegas. His style is limitless.
During the Miami conference Sharam rejoined his old buddy Dubfire as the legendary duo “Deep Dish” and performed their first show in over 8 years setting the industry abuzz once again with their set as well as their new single “Quincy”.

Be sure to arrive early to catch some sunshine and indulge in the luxury of the beach club on your very own sunbed or private beach bungalow, or keep yourself cool with a cocktail at the swim-up bar.

Create new memories over lunch with friends at the restaurant overlooking the pristine waters of the Palm Jumeirah. As the sun goes down and Day turns to Night, EDEN will evolve into a party with DJs Kaytek & Trix heating things up before the big guns take over the decks.

Opening hours: 10am – Midnight. EDEN’s door policy applies.
