David Gray joins Dubai Jazz Festival line-up

Time Out Dubai announces British musician David Gray has joined the Emirates Airlines Dubai Jazz Festival line-up for 2016

Another great name has been added to the Dubai Jazz Festival line-up, David Gray.

The British crooner will be returning the Emirates Airline-sponsored event, after selling out the music show in 2008 and 2010.

Expect the musician to perform famous tracks such as Babylon, Sail Away and My Oh My when he gets on stage in the emirate, as well as a few from his latest album Mutineers.

Gray’s career has spanned 22 years so they’ll no doubt be a good range of attendees at his set.

His involvement means he’ll join the likes of Sting and Chris Botti.

On Thursday February 25, the 64-year-old will hit the stage in a collaboration with the trumpeter, who is the largest selling instrumental artist in the United States right now.

Legendary rocker Carlos Santana is to play the 14th edition of the event in February.

When the Mexican/American jets over for the occasion, Argentinian group La Bomba De Tiempo, an ensemble of 17 percussionists, will also take to the stage.

Multi-Grammy-Award-winning US pop-rock band TOTO will headline the opening night of the festival, with support from Postmodern Jukebox.

Taking place from Wednesday February 24 to Friday 26, 2016 at the Dubai Media City Amphitheatre, the 14th edition of the festival is set to be bigger and better than ever.

Last year the likes of John Legend, Sting and James Blunt headlined.

Tickets cost Dhs395-1,450. Dubai Media City Amphitheatre, Dubai Media City, www.dubaijazzfest.com.
