This eco-friendly festival is what Dubai has been waiting for

If there's one thing Grazia loves more than a festival, it's a festival with a conscience. 

Sunsets Festival is back in Dubai for another three-day extravaganza, and this time it has a brilliant new twist. 

Yes, the festival has a huge focus on sustainability. There will be a zero-waste pop-up bar - a first in Dubai - as the event has decided to shun the former floating offering and instead look to show off how bars of the future can be 100 percent sustainable.

As well as zero-waste drinks, the whole beach will be transformed into an open-air gallery using bamboo, and there’ll be fashionable eco-offerings from OHOY swim - the swimsuit brand made from old fishing nets - plus Wildwood, sunglasses made from reclaimed wood, for sale. Amazing.

Taking place between Thursday 25 October and Saturday 27, the headliners this year are international DJs Sam Feldt and Nicky Romero.

Great effort, guys. We'll see you there.
