About Us:

We are The Sound Gaarden. A discovery and hiring platform for local artists in Dubai. We want to give our artists the opportunity to play shows and get in front of as many people as possible.

We are not a talent agency. Neither are we a record label. We are the middle man between venues and musicians. We want to see our local musicians represented across the city and promote their talent and sound. We also understand the dearth of performers readily available to venues here in Dubai and we can bridge that gap and put 2 and 2 together.

We are proud to say that we are now part of the AstroLabs community in Jumeirah Lakes Towers, partners and affiliates with the Google Tech Hub here in Dubai.

What we do:

For venues:

Online booking:

Our favorite part. Browse through any or all of the artists on our site and hire them directly through The Sound Gaarden website. Just hit ‘INQUIRE’ tell us a little about your event and you are done, the artist will be booked and we will call AND email you a confirmation.  It is that simple.

Prefer to do it offline? Just give us a call at +971 50 551 8086 and we will take care of the rest!

Musicians for events:

Are you looking for musicians for an event? Maybe 2 artists? 3? 15? 30? No worries, we handle all logistics, sound, transportation and communication. Drop us an email at grapevine@thesoundgaarden.com or give us a call at +971 50 551 8086 and we will get everything sorted in no time.

Resident musicians:

Are you looking to spice things up at your venue (restaurant, bar or club)? Well then, that’s what we are here for. We have some very unique and interesting packages for resident musicians so please feel free to get in touch with one of our team to get everything in order for you. Just email us at grapevine@thesoundgaarden.com or give us a call at +971 50 551 8086.


For artists:

Beautiful profiles:

We know you are all beautiful people so we feel that you should also have beautiful profiles to showcase your music. We handle that for you and do things the way you want it. The world is online, we should be too.

Acoustic sessions, video interviews and photographs:

We understand that some of you amazing artists may not have the best video or audio content. Our team will shoot acoustic sessions (and live shows) and promote all things you. We understand the marketing and promotion side of things, so we will make sure we get your content out there.

Gigs, shows and events:

Our bread and butter. We will find you shows and put you in the front line. We are not a passive team but an active one that is constantly working on deals and events around the city. We only thrive when all of you do.


For fans:

It is often hard to connect with a local music scene without being actively involved. We aim to change that. We make all of our content available to you across all channels. You can talk to the artists, watch their interviews, acoustic sessions and listen to their music. We are all a community.


Feel free to contact us through any channel
