Atelier Festival

This event aimed to celebrate the gift of music and bring some of the biggest international artists to the UAE. Indeed, it met everyone’s expectations, making it a concert that no one would forget for a long time.

First on stage was 29 year-old pop/R&B singer Jay Sean with his personal DJ, and talented beat boxing skills, belting out classic hits like ‘Do you Remember’ and ‘Eyes on You’, and finishing off with the Hindi version of ‘Ride It’, which definitely got the crowd moving. Next on was the soulful, Skylar Gray, whose songs “Coming Home (Part III)” and “Words” illuminated just how incredible a songwriter and performer she really is.

After a short interval and everyone getting refreshments to get ready for the rest of the night’s entertainment, Natasha Bedingfield came on in a stunning gold dress that accentuated her figure. As the night went on, the International Stadium was buzzing. Natasha was followed by the RnB sensation Taio Cruz, blasting out hits like ‘Higher’ and ‘Dynamite’ which got the crowd jumping to the beat. It was a hard act to follow until the beautiful Leona Lewis came on stage. She was magical; the audience was instantly mesmerized, especially when she hit the high notes in ‘Collide’ and ‘Bleeding Love’. 

This was an amazing event; Atlier Live Festival brought together the best of the best international artists of our time. If you missed out this time, don’t worry, Atlier Live Festival Dance Arena will be hosted in the UAE every four months, so don’t miss out on the next one.
