The clubs and bars in Dubai experience more activity during summer nights. Various artists, musicians, DJs, and entertainers visit Dubai during summer time and leave the echoes of life and celebrations in the city. The wild and sweaty concerts held under artificial lights on big venues attract all kinds of music enthusiasts. The live entertainment in Dubai is not limited to concerts and music shows, in fact world’s popular companies like Circ Du Soleil also performs live in Dubai.

Desert Camping

The summer nights in Dubai with full moon can be enjoyed best in the Arabian Desert. Since the brutal wind of summer days get even savage in desert, you better discard the idea of having Desert Safari in summer but the same desert acts differently at night when temperature drops to various degrees and winds become pleasant. BBQ, music, dance, and the gentle sight of Arabian dunes spread across the wide horizon look heavenly under the moonlight. You will fall in love with the Arabian Desert as soon as you visit it in a fresh summer night.
