Emirates Airline Dubai Jazz Festival 2020 is just on the horizon this February, bringing with it all the big acts, al fresco tunes and fun vibe we know and love.
Gear up for a night of R&B and soul on 26 February as American singer, songwriter and rapper Lauryn Hill takes to the stage. She’ll be joined by British musician Bruno Major, R&B and soul legend Lionel Richie and California pop-rockers OneRepublic.
One of the greatest voices of the past 30 years, Lauryn Hil will be performing live in Dubai on Wednesday February 26, so expect hits from the Fugees era, such as Killing Me Softly With His Song, plus this absolute classic. Hill will be opening proceedings at the festival on Wednesday night, with support coming British jazz and soul singer songwriter Bruno Major.
The legendary Lionel Richie is guaranteed to get the crowd going with his world-famous back catalogue on the second night. With more than 100 million albums sold internationally, the Hello singer has won numerous accolades throughout his career including an Oscar, a Golden Globe and four Grammy Awards. He will be supported by the jazz fusion band Spyro Gyra.
Completing the bill are California pop-rockers, who will be closing the Dubai Jazz Festival 2020 on Friday February 28. The American band are known for absolutely massive hit Apologize, originally released in 2006, but remixed by Timbaland to gain the band even more recognition in 2007 and send them to the top of singles charts around the world. The band headlined the Dubai Jazz Festival back in 2013, so they’re back for their first appearance in Dubai in seven years.
The three-day jazz extravaganza will be kicking off on Wednesday February 26, with each day starting from 6pm onwards.
The event has a long, rich history of putting on the biggest and best names from the world of music for three days every year.
