Facing stiff competition from the likes of DJ Jazzy Jeff, Will.I.AM and Redfest DXB, Atlantis, The Palm brought home two awards at Time Out Dubai’s Music & Nightlife Awards on 26 February 2014.
Atlantis took away statues for:
- Best international DJ set: David Guetta Live@Atlantis
- Best festival: Atlantis for Sandance featuring The Killers, Of Monsters and Men and The Wailers
Says Time Out of the win “To celebrate its third birthday – oh! Look how you’ve grown! – the team behind Sandance had something extra-special in store. Indeed – fresh from headlining Wembley Stadium, The Killers’ may be the biggest Sandance headliner we’ve ever seen, and they failed to disappoint with a strong back catalogue of hits wheeled out with clinical efficiency. But beyond the big(gest) name, this was a fully rounded bill, with a rousing sundown set from The Wailers (of Bob Marley fame) and a well-timed booking of rising Icelandic indie stars Of Monsters and Men.”
Atlantis was also nominated in the following categories:
- David Guetta Live at Atlantis in the Best International DJ set category
- Noel Gallagher with Richard Ashcroft Live at Atlantis in the Best Gig (3000+) category
- Sandance with Florence and Keane at Atlantis in the Best Festival Category
- Sandance with The Killers, Wailers and Of Monsters & Men at Atlantis in the Best Festival Category
- Sandance with Jamiroquai, Chic feat. Nile Rodgers and Rudimental at Atlantis in the Best Festival Category
- Nasimi Beach, Atlantis in the Best Outdoor Bar category
- N’Dulge, Atlantis the Palm in the Best Club category
