One of the world’s biggest magazine brands launches a brand-new event in Bahrain
For the first time ever, Time Out, one of the world’s biggest magazine brands, which has an audience of more than 150 million readers and presence in more than 100 cities, is launching a ground-breaking music festival in Bahrain.
This comes on the back of Time Out GCC launching Time Out Live!, a new, regional series of live events, and the first-ever event under this new brand extension is Bahrain Jams.
Working with the country’s most exciting and promising talents, this milestone event will showcase popular local bands and musicians on September 30 in Café Amsterdam and La Vinoteca Barcelona.
Following a massive cover feature in August’s issue of Time Out Bahrain, which is produced by ITP Publishing Group, which profiled the best musicians and acts the Kingdom has to offer, the brand is going all-out with a pioneering event to celebrate Bahrain’s top promoters and acts, who will gather together under one roof to bring us an incredible evening of performances.
From folksy blues to jazz, deep house to electro swing, all musical genres will be covered at Bahrain Jams, so you can pick and choose which acts to listen to.
Just before heading off on a US tour with Jools Holland, the noted English pianist, bandleader, singer and composer, Bahrain’s own folk singer-songwriter Mo Zowayed and his band will be bringing their unique blend of American bluegrass, upbeat harmonica and acoustic guitar-driven melodies to the festival.
On the same stage, we’ll also hear from home-grown four-piece gypsy jazz outfit The Hot Club of Bahrain, as well as noted Bahrain-based hip-hop artist Tony Attalla, who recently launched his brand-new music video.
As for the electronic artists and DJs, five well-known names will perform, supported by local promoter and agent Glassroom, which is currently encouraging an underground music movement on the island, collaborating with DJs and electronic musicians performing a range of music, from house to trance, techno to deep house.
Electronic acts include Saudi-American, multi-genre DJ and live electronic artist Captain Tea, alongside Bahraini-British DJ Sami Dee, who has decades of experience on the house music circuit, and Pakistani electronic musician Dust Frequency, who will be performing an exclusive live electronic set on the night.
Fresh from a tour of Europe, DJ Tauren will also stop off to play a brand-new, never-heard-before live electronic set with our very own Captain Tea. Finally, Sandra Knight will be cooling things down with her chilled-out ambient house set.
