Fahed Ghanim acting Chief Executive Officer at Majid Al Futtaim Fashion said: “We are delighted to bring a compelling demonstration of music and culture to Mall of the Emirates’ guests through the AllSaints ME Sessions. This will be an unmissable opportunity for emerging artists to express themselves and get noticed, and a place for the community to support their favourite act or discover something new. We’re proud to host a platform such as this that helps locally based talent to flourish.”
The arrival of ME Sessions also sees AllSaints form a deeper connection with an audience that already looks to the brand for grungy looks with a designer tag.
How bands can apply and voting
Submissions to be a part of AllSaints ME Sessions are open from 16 February until 7 March, and interested artists are encouraged to visit the microsite to apply.
Once tracks are uploaded, AllSaints will select the artists to be shortlisted, who will go through to the live performances starting 20 March. At the close of the live performances, the public will then vote via the microsite for the band or musician to be crowned winner of AllSaints ME Sessions 2020 on 5 April.
Not only will the winner secure invaluable exposure among the UAE’s music and culture community, they’ll work alongside a producer to record, produce and mix one song in-studio, and gain radio exposure as their air clips will be played on Dubai 92 and added to Anghami’s library. The winner will also land an AllSaints wardrobe worth AED 5,000 to look the part.
