Founded in 2015, Amp’d has long been one of the pillars of underground live music and open mics in the UAE. The brand is now scheduled to celebrate World Music Day with a massive open mic on June 21st at in5 Media in Dubai Production City.
The open mic will host 50 musical acts in a marathon four-hour long event. Each act will perform a song of their choice and then connect and meet other musicians from the UAE music community. “Our goal is to have musicians, singer-songwriters, producers and more connect with each other and strengthen networking within the music community” said Khan, Founder of Amp’d. “With this event we want to announce our plans for the season as well as celebrate our 50+ open mic event in Dubai.”
“Implementing an open mic of this scale has only been possible through the support of the community. Our ecosystem partner in5 has played a crucial role in both our podcast series and this event, while our media partner Art Kentro has used its reach in the industry to help us further the music movement as a whole”, he added.
Amp’d is the only open mic concept in the region that works on a smart registration system. Every act must register on theampdshow.com and are then emailed confirmations, event details and reminders prior to the event. This system enables them to organize their open mics better and every registered artist is guaranteed a slot on stage.
Following the open mic, performers are invited to an afterparty at the Aloft Hotel Me'aisem, Amp’d guests will receive special rates on food and beverage.
Catch the Amp’d Show live at in5 media in Dubai Production City on Friday, June 21 2019 from 4PM-8PM. Doors open 3:30PM. Entry is free but prior artist registration is required. Performers can bring in family and friends.
