Dubai, UAE;03 January 2023: Calling all live music enthusiasts!The UAE’s 2023 music calendar is starting with a bang as FREEK, ART Voices, Idreesi and Parekh & Singh prepare to headline The Fridge Concert Series.

Music has the potential to bring communities together, and The Fridge has been harnessing this power for over a decade. With four gigs spread across January and February, this season’s star-studded line-up will continue the concert series’ unrivalled track record of bringing the hottest original acts and never-before-seen collaborations to the UAE.
Located on Alserkal Avenue in Dubai, The Fridge Warehouse will kick off its 2023 calendar on 17 January with Somali trap artist, FREEK, a trailblazer in the Arabic trap scene who has opened for the likes of Stormzy and Future. Armenian band ART Voices will take to the stage on 24th January for an evening of heartwarming jazz and Armenian fusion. The following week will see Jordanian singer Idreesi electrify the stage with an unforgettable night of Arabic electro-pop on the 31st of January. And last but certainly not least, Indian dream pop duo, Parekh & Singh, will round off the series on 7th February with their divine vocals and effervescent percussion. This season will also feature unmissable supporting performances from NM1, Sanaz Sotoudeh, Sara Felula and Seaside Feels.

With roots stretching back to 2008, The Fridge Concert Series is the most recognised platform for original music in the UAE. What started life as a stripped-back, stage setup has evolved to become a full-scale venue for live acts with an audio-visual system that enables artists to turn their ambitious visions into reality. The concert series’ mission is to support regional youth while providing a platform for up-and-coming musicians from across the Emirates and beyond, especially those changing the face of the Arabic music scene.
By giving acts full control over their set designs, decorations, projections and light shows, The Fridge represents a blank canvas, meaning every performance offers something completely new and unique.
