Fourteen years since it first started, Dubai’s Jazz Festival of 2016 looks as promising as ever. The three day event, from 24th of February to 26th of February, expects to see the presence of musicians from across the globe. The festival stands tall on every criterion of a blockbuster event- a great theme, an interesting line up and a state of the art venue among other things. This year’s festival has ‘Much More than Jazz’ as its central theme and therefore one can expect more, and better, of everything. Indie Rock, Classic Rock, Urban and Pop are some of the other genres of music which will be on offer along with Jazz in the festival. The line up, which consists of the YouTube sensation Postmodern Jukebox aka PMJ, US pop-rock band TOTO, the legendary guitarist Carlos Santana and Sting among others is truly impressive.
The festival ensures its visitors a chance to see stalwarts in the field of music pulling off their best performances. Most of which will be about presenting pop songs with a hint of vintage in them. Give or take one or two, about 5 major bands are expected to perform in Dubai’s Jazz Festival this year. This event, which is supposed to be held in the city’s Media City Amphitheatre, is as grand as it gets. If a trip to Dubai is on your mind, there has never been a better time.
