5th Anniversary & Desert Open Mic Concert
Hey All, Winter is finally here and we are super excited to be hosting our 5th Anniversary Event in the Desert. As this is our anniversary event; any help from our members in making this event successful would be much appreciated. We would require a bit of help to probably light up/ decorate the place , some one to take pics and probably videos too. Your contribution : This is the only event where we ask for a small contribution. The amount will be AED 10 per person which will go towards firewood, fire torches and miscellaneous expenses. This will be collected at the meeting point / camp area. Please do pay up if you are coming as it becomes a very expensive affair for the organizers to be paying this out of pocket. Meeting Time: 4 p.m. Meeting Point: (The Last Exit - Al Qudra) where we will group and then move together to the final destination which is near Al Qudra Desert. People need to be on time as I will move the group on time to get to the destination before sundown. Carpool sheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1BMVzk9NDuyQ1Ov1J2M008oFuE7XEKYlPXICkyo05kpE/edit#gid=[masked] Please carry a bag of Firewood with you. Every car coming should have at least one bag of firewood this can be purchased on the way to Al Quadra at the first roundabout …there are trucks that sell firewood. Things to bring: * Camping equipment- Tents, sleeping bags, mats, chairs, lights * Food and drinks - for yourselves and a little to share. * Your own Musical Instruments if you are jamming. Looking forward to seeing you all on the 30th :) Cheers ....Chris. Important Information: 1. FIRE IS NOT ALLOWED IN THE SAND at Qudra - please ensure you use a metal dish or a BBQ tray and keep the firewood off the ground. Municipality inspects the location and you may be issued with a fine. We will as far as possible try and have only one campfire, bbq setups can be done separately. 2. Please be on time at the meeting point. 3. All cars can reach the camping area (sedans included) Sedans will park on a dirt track and we will camp approximately 20m from the stop… easily walkable distance. 4.

    What we're about

    Hey All,

    This note is primarily for the new members joining the Home Concerts group; a little long but worth the read, just so you understand how the events are organized for this group and what you should do or expect at these events.

    The Home Concerts in Dubai group is a group which was started in the year 2013 and while the concept of Home Concerts was not new in Dubai it was formalized by way of this Meetup group back then.

    The concept of home concerts is very simple. If an individual wants to host an event at their place , they reach out to the organizers informing them about the exact date of the event and the number of people their home can accommodate. The event is put up on Meetup.com and the members of Home Concerts in Dubai are allowed to RSVP for that event. We give priority to musicians as they are crucial to making each event a success. However, the event is opened to all irrespective of the individual being a musician or not.A wait list is created if the number is more than the number of people that can be hosted and as and when rsvps change the wait listed members move up into the confirmed list.

    People attending the event are expected to bring a little food or drinks to share with everyone who attends the event ( showing up empty handed is kind of rude). The host usually does not provide any food or drinks unless he or she wants to voluntarily. The music can either be unplugged or plugged depending on the host and taking into account the neighbors in the area(timings for each event are set based on this too).

    The events are free and by that we mean there are no fees or tickets or any charges associated with any of the events. We do organize events in the desert and that would be one of the few times we charge a small fee to cover the expenses incurred for organizing that event.

    The exact address of each event will only be provided to the confirmed list of members one day prior to the event. The approximate location will be shared when the event is announced (i.e. If you are residing in the Marina , we will let the members know that the location is in the Marina but will not give out the hosts actually address till one day prior to the event).

    This message is quite long but I hope I have covered atleast some of your questions. In any case if you have any queries please do reach out to us the organizers and we will be happy to address your queries.

    Do join us on our facebook page "Home Concerts in Dubai" to view the photos and videos.

    Please also do offer to host if you can as we can only do these events if you offer to host one. Cheers Chris Rodrigues Mob: 0507213296 / 0559972829 (On behalf of the Home Concerts organizing committee).
