Time Out Dubai staff
Legendary music producer, renowned philanthropist and all-round cool guy Quincy Jones has helped to launch two new music festivals in Dubai. Best known for producing Michael Jackson’s first three albums – including the world’s best-selling LP ever, 1987’s Thriller – Jones has backed the launch of both Dubai Rocks and Dubai Classics, set to take place later this year. The two events form a trio of announcements by Jones’s Global Gumbo Group, Dubai World Trade Centre and Dubai Music Week, the region’s first music industry trade show.
