EMIRATES AIRLINE DUBAI JAZZ FESTIVAL

By Amardeep Singh

EMIRATES BRINGS JAZZ TO DUBAI ONCE AGAIN

When you’ve got a superb lineup of some of the greatest figures coming together for a musical sensation, you know there’s a lot at stake each year as the crowd’s expectations increase. Emirates Airlines celebrated its newest iteration of the much awaited Jazz Music Festival. The 16th Emirates Airline Dubai Jazz Festival ran from 21 to 23 February 2018 at the Dubai Media City Amphitheatre and featured the following main performances:

Duran Duran:- The band performed single hits and solos going back to the Top 10 days with several encores and repeat performances carrying away the opening night to a heightened and euphoric beginning.

RENEGADE BRASS BAND:- RBB has already played packed-out shows at venues around the UK and Europe and have had collaborations with De La Soul, Busta Rhymes, Grandmaster Flash, Public Enemy, The Cat Empire, Jamie Cullum, Quantic, Craig Charles and many more artists. RBB’s festival performances include the Glastonbury, Java Jazz Festival Jakarta, Sea Sessions Ireland, Black Sea Jazz Festival, Stuttgart Jazz Festival and Soundwave Croatia.

JOHN LEGEND:- John Legend made his entry into the festival for the third time wowing fans with hits like All of Me from his fourth studio album ‘Love in the Future’ which claimed the #1 spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 Singles Chart and reached #1 on both Mainstream Top 40 and Rhythmic Charts.

CHINA MOSES:- An exceptionally young artist with a rich R&B heritage, China Moses drew the crowds crazy with her jazz vocals and injected the theater in a frenzy of melody and musical masterpieces.

RICKY MARTIN:- The night was kept pumping with chartbusters like “Living La Vida Loca”, “The Cup of Life” and “She Bangs” as Ricky Martin took the spot. Performances included samples from his recent single “Vente Pa’ Ca” which became one of the biggest hits of 2016, topping the charts worldwide.

VERA CIOCCA:- Originally a soloist focusing in Pop and R&B music, she participated on The Voice Teens Colombia, where out of 10,000 participants, she was among the top 8. With more than 700,000 views on social media and millions of rising fans worldwide, her performances were a treat for the local populace.

The first ever inaugural edition took place in January 2003 selling just over a thousand tickets which has steadily increased over the years. Unlike the three day format, by 2012 the festival was extended to 10 days in celebration of its 10th anniversary and saw more than 50,000 entrants.

The 2015 edition remains the best selling edition having 3 sold out nights featuring award winning artists including Sting, John Legend, and James Blunt to add to the roster.

But beyond the stage and glamour that surrounds the theater, the festival is a major musical milestone for the region. It remains the most awarded music event in the UAE receiving the “What’s On” Award for “The Best Festival” consistently in 2006, 2007, 2009 and 2010. It also received the “Best Public Entertainment Event in The Middle East” for 2008 and the “Best Marketing of An Event” Award in 2009 at the EVENT 360 “; the Time Out Award for the “Best Music Festival” in 2010, with the recent Ahlan! Best In Dubai Award as the “Best Music Event” for 2010.

One thing seems certain, the crowds are getting larger and loaded for more.
