The two-day line-up at Party in the Park just keeps getting better ... and more British. Organisers have announced that Lighthouse Family will be joining the bill, along with Fatboy Slim, The Kooks and The Verve’s Richard Ashcroft.

The festival is set to take place on Thursday, October 31 and Friday, November 1 at Dubai Media City Amphitheatre.

Lighthouse Family will be joining the line-up on November 1, their first time in the UAE. Expect to hear favourites like Lifted, Ocean Drive and High on the night.

They are also set to play new songs from their latest album Blue Sky In Your Hand, which was released in July this year – their first album in 18 years.

Earlier in the day, there will also be music from support acts including local favourites The Boxtones and Dubai duo The Supernovas.

It was announced earlier this month that Fatboy Slim will headline the main stage on October 31, with a Halloween party. Expect the DJ and producer to play some of his most popular hits, including Right Here, Right Now, Praise You and Eat, Sleep, Rave, Repeat. Day two will see Richard Ashcroft and The Kooks take the stage.
