Support comes from jazz fusion band Spyro Gyra.

The winner of Time Out Dubai’s Best Festival at the Time Out Dubai Music & Nightlife Awards 2019, the ostensibly jazz-originated festival is back for its 18th edition at the end of February 2020.

It may play fairly fast and loose with the use of the term “jazz” nowadays, but 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.

Last year saw ’80s rock heroes Duran Duran, funk rock legends Jamiroquai and Grammy Award-winning singer and songwriter Alicia Keys take to the stage in Dubai Media City Amphitheatre, featuring support from some outstanding global and local artists, including local three-piece indie outfit Vandalye.

One of the best parts of winter is the ace weekend of live music that lands every February, tickets are avaiable now from www.800tickets.com, with prices starting at Dhs350.

Elsewhere, one of the other great festivals in Dubai returns this month, with Groove on the Grass coming back to Emirates Golf Club with a line-up of EDM DJs.

From Dhs350. Thu Feb 27, 2020. Dubai Media City Amphitheatre, Dubai Media City, www.800tickets.com.com, www.dubaijazzfest.com
