Summer 2015 was truly epic for the infamous party brand. Ibiza veteran and long standing Pukka Up resident Chris Wright is ready to smash a winter season in the incredible city ‘Dubai’ We catch up with him to find out about what’s going on in the world of Pukka UP UAE.
Hi Chris, how was your summer in Ibiza?
I’ve had an incredible summer working for Pukka Up, with all our events selling out and our new concept of VIP Boat parties I’ve got to work with some interesting artists including Lost Frequencies, Mista Jam, Chicane to name a few. I was also fortunate enough to get to play in the main room at Amnesia for Together, who have dominated the Tuesday evenings in Ibiza this summer.
We hear you are based in Dubai now and there for the winter.
Yes, after the summer season I always base myself in Dubai, hosting events and Djing in a lot of the main clubs and beach clubs. Not many people know but Dubai is like a mini Ibiza, the venues are astounding and like Ibiza the crowd is always up for a party, with huge international djs being booked weekly the demand for House music is huge.
