Homegrown super club BASE has confirmed a line-up of global superstars for December and into the New Year. BASE kicked-off December with crowd favourite, Mel Debarge on December 1, followed by platinum-selling rapper Future on December 2. Top Rap Song of the Year Award-Winner Desiigner, and techno maestro Marco Carola, along with Grammy nominated and Top Soundtrack Song of the Year winner for ‘What’s Luv?’ Fat Joe, will see out the year at the 2,000 capacity venue.
After an eventful few weeks that saw Erick Morillo, Young M.A., Disciples, Fat Joe, Hugo Bianco, and Kid Ink light up the BASE stage as the evening temperatures began to drop, the open-air venue hosted Jennifer Lopez, French Montana, Future, and DJ Cruz, along with Tyga who celebrated his birthday in style at BASE in November. Formula 1 racing driver Lewis Hamilton also visited over the course of the Abu Dhabi Race Weekend, and with this month’s huge December line-up, the festival vibes and big beats will most definitely be at BASE until the end of the year.

Lemuel Gulliver has been working in the mail room of a New York daily newspaper for the past ten years. Afraid to put himself out there, he considers himself a loser, as do all his peers. One day, after having finally had enough, he decides to declare his flame to the beautiful Darcy Silverman, the newspaper’s travel editor and one of Gulliver’s only friends. Darcy accepts and sends him on an assignment to the Bermuda Triangle. There, Gulliver becomes shipwrecked and ends up on the island of Liliput, where he is twelve taller than the tallest man.

Marley & Me
After their wedding, newspaper writers John and Jennifer Grogan move to Florida and he gives her a puppy. While the puppy Marley grows into a 100-pound dog, he loses none of his puppy energy or rambunctiousness. Marley’s antics give John rich material for his newspaper column. As the Grogans mature and have children of their own, Marley continues to test everyone’s patience by acting like the world’s most impulsive dog.
