Full Moon Desert Drumming With a Taste of Christmas

Full Moon Desert Drumming | 9 December, 2011 | Gulf Ventures Desert Camp – Al Awir |

Come along and join in with Dubai’s drumming crowd and let’s drum in the season of festivity. Whether you are a complete beginner or an experienced percussionist, you can enjoy a night under the full moon with the wonderful energy of the desert and the rhythmic sounds and company of Dubai’s drumming community. A great night out for the whole family and also a great way to chill out from the stress of modern day living.

Father Christmas will make an appearance with some presents for the children, as well as the usual kid’s entertainment: face painter, hair braider and balloon lady.

Price includes drumming sessions, barbecue dinner, fire twirlers, camel rides, sand boarding and shisha. Four wheel drive transportation is available from the desert edge to the Camp, so you can come with your saloon car if you don’t have a 4WD. Please note that the DTCM no longer allow people to drive their 4WD vehicles to the camp site. All cars have to be left at the desert edge car park.

Please note: The DTCM have announced that DJ’s are no longer permitted in desert camps. This is because it is not in line with UAE cultural values. Instead of the live DJ disco music there will be background music in between the drumming.
