Dubai To Construct ‘New Ibiza’ With Man-Made Party Island

Thanks to a newly constructed man-made island in the Arabian Gulf, Dubai will have a 24-hour, non-stop party scene that looks to rival the likes of Ibiza and Vegas.

Tentatively titled Dream Island, the party complex, which is dedicated exclusively for partying, will consist of two “mega clubs,” four beach clubs, and five hotels. The four-million square foot island will be able to host over 20,000 people at any given time and will include over 100 different restaurants. No personal licenses will be required for the purchase of alcohol.

Speaking to The Daily Mail, marketing and sales director George Saad said the island also hopes to cultivate an attractive atmosphere for festivals like Burning Man.

“We’re trying to make it the new Ibiza–a mini Ibiza dedicated solely to partying. People will be able to come here, stay in the hotel, party at clubs on the beach, anything in the world you can do. And we are trying to attract festivals to come here–like Burning Man.”

Dream Island is set to be completed in 2018, giving partygoers plenty of time to start planning and saving for the island’s grand opening.
