Maldivian islands aren’t exactly the first place that comes to mind as far as beachside concerts are concerned – the vibe of these Indian Ocean islands is definitely more chill than rave – but one resort is set to change all that! Finolhu Maldives is hosting its first 1 Oak Island festival this month, a three-day bash featuring pool parties, themed dinners, treasure hunts, fun games, and a headliner concert by… wait for it… Robin Thicke.
Running from July 28-30, the event will include highlights such as a Bruce Lee-inspired dinner (?), and an 80s disco party on the first night; beach games and food trucks, plus the Grammy-winning Thicke’s concert on the second night; with a wind-down theme of poolside spa treatments and retro music on the 30th – all against a backdrop of various other entertainment and activities, and those picture-perfect white sand beaches and turquoise sea, of course.
Other resorts have attempted to bring a nightlife element into the Maldives experience (we’re looking at you, Per Aquum Huvafen Fushi!), but probably not at this scale. Move over Miami, for anyone looking for a hedonistic weekend of soaking in luxury while partying, this is the place to be!
Various accommodation packages are available at the resort.
