Middle East metalheads, country fans and ravers looking forward to hearing line-up for Dubai Jazz Festival 2014
Region’s hip hop and trance enthusiasts also awaiting news of headline acts
Heavy metal, country and rave fans from across the region have said they are eagerly anticipating the announcement of the 2014 Dubai Jazz Festival.
British pop singer Olly Murs is already confirmed as headline act for the event, a week-long celebration of jazz due to take place next February, but with the other slots yet to be revealed, the Middle East’s hip hop, trance and dubstep enthusiasts are looking forward to hearing who else might be coming.
“I hope it’s Megadeth, or maybe even Tiesto,” said Qatari jazz fan Mustapha Watson.

I’ve just visited their page. Apparently they already booked “Olly Murs” who wears a suit and even a hat in some pictures. I guess that qualifies him as a jazz artist…

This just made me burst out laughing in the office. Each year when I see the line-up I’ve always wondered how they can call it the Dubai Jazz Festival when the closest thing the performing artists have to Jazz is that they once bought a jazz mag from their local newsagents top shelf. Brilliant!
