Curated playlists from local talents launched by Dubai Design District

June 18, 2020

Available to stream through Apple Music.

As a way to highlight the top emerging musicians and artists in the region, Dubai Design District (d3) is curating playlists from these musicians and making them available exclusively on Apple Music. This is also a way for musicians to reach out to fans as well as supporting them during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. 

“Music is an intrinsic fiber of our cultural and social fabric. The decision to add more music-focused programming to our roster is part of a conscious effort to build a more nuanced, diverse, and rich artistic community – one that we are pleased to influence and shape. Dubai has gradually grown in its popularity as a leading destination for musical talent and is already home to many talented performers who deserve a chance to express themselves and earn their spot in the limelight. This initiative seeks to support the work of these artists and therefore, is a natural extension of our efforts to promote local and regional creative talent,” said Khadija Al Bastaki, Executive Director of d3.

This is just one of the various music-focused initiatives made within the community. Other events such as d3 Unplugged and LAST SEEN LIVE have helped turn d3 into a launchpad for homegrown talent and even saw the appearance of famous artists like Rita Ora and Imagine Dragons. LAST SEEN LIVE’s event producer Hiam Salibi will be curating d3’s first five playlists on Apple Music.
