Dubai with Hussein Hassan

Hussein Hassan, AKA oldyungmayn, is a Palestinian-Egyptian DJ from Dubai. With its emerging epicentre in alternative and youth-dominated music, Hassan is just one of the trailblazing musicians bringing excitement to one of the UAE’s most attractive cities. As shown by the growing popularity of urban festival Sole DXB since its establishment in 2011, youth culture in Dubai is becoming self-defined, opening up a market for young creatives which has not yet been capitalised upon by tradition or the hyper-luxury market. The same can be said for music, where warehouse spaces are being taken over by young people, with the ability to practise a creative freedom which a few years ago was largely a fantasy for Emirati millennials. Scroll below for his best spots to go in Dubai!
