Dubai Jazz Festival is only one month away and another music act has been added to the star-studded line-up.

British rock band James will be appearing on February 24, the same day Toto and Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox take to the stage.

The seven-piece group have been going for an impressive 32 years and have released 13 studio albums, plus sold more than 12 million albums across the globe.

Attendees to the 14th annual event at Dubai Media City Amphitheatre can expect them to perform tracks such as Sit Down, Come Home, She’s A Star and Born of Frustration.

James are gearing to release their next LP next month, titled Girl At The End Of The World.

Hailing from Manchester, they have a 15-date UK tour to look forward to in May.

Dubai Jazz Festival is also hosting sets by Carlos Santana, David Gray, Sting and trumpeter Chris Botti, and percussion group La Bomba De Tiempo.

Last year the likes of John Legend, Sting and James Blunt headlined the Emirates Airline-sponsored gathering.

The festival runs from Wednesday February 24 to Friday 26. Regular standing tickets cost D395, Golden Circle entry is D795, Fan Pit access is Dhs995 and VIP tickets are D1,450.
