David Guetta, Live @ Atlantis – 18th December
While there seems to be a never-ending list of DJs saturating today’s trendy music scene, David Guetta’s actually one of the more talented examples of the tribe, so we advise a watch. He’s spinning the decks at Live@Atlantis this month.
Real Madrid vs AC Milan – 30th December

Yes, it’s overrated. Yes, you might spend a tonne or throw an ill-advised superparty at your flat. But what else are you going to do? Stay in? If you’re after a retro vibe, the New Year’s Eve Masterjam at the Dubai Media City Amphitheatre has The Jacksons, Gloria Gaynor and an assortment of 70s pals.
