The Dubai Design District (D3) recently announced that is introducing its new event to its 2015 programming schedule, 'Meet d3,' in soulful style with a headline concert from John Newman on April 2. The concert will be free entry and will mark the inauguration of the new design district event that aims to showcase a fantastic programme of local, regional and international artists, designers, musicians, concept retailers and unique dining experiences.

The British soul singer, who already has three Brit Award nominations and a UK number one under his belt, is currently recording his second album in LA and is thrilled to be taking time out from the studio to return to Dubai and perform as part of the D3 event:

"Dubai is a stylish place, such luxury, high fashion and culture all in one amazing city.  The last time I played in Dubai it was a brilliant experience and I can't wait to come back. I'm really looking forward to playing 'Meet d3'  and it's great that there is now a dedicated venue in Dubai that will cater to and nurture creative talent."
