He played Sandance Music Festival in 2012 and 2014 and Fatboy Slim is returning to Dubai once again.

The musician – whose real name is Norman Cook – will be playing what’s expected to be a mega show at Pacha Ibiza Dubai.

As a legendary DJ he’ll surely pull in big numbers for the gig taking place Friday December 18.

The 52-year-old is the proud winner of 10 MTV Video Music Awards and has two Brits.

Partygoers can expect him to blast out tunes including Eat Sleep Rave Repeat, plus classics such as Right Here, Right Now and Praise You.

He’s been all over the planet recently, performing at Creamfields in the UK, Ibiza club Amnesia, as well as Georgia, United States for the Global Gathering festival there.

Earlier this month the producer revealed that he’d be coming to this side of the world when he shared news of him headlining Enchanted Valley Carnival in India.

Pacha opened in the emirate last October and so far big names including Paul Van Dyk and Martin Solveig have taken to the decks.

Also coming up this winter Defected In the House (Simon Dunmore, RAE, Shovell Live percussion) will be performing on the rooftop.
