Emirates Airline Dubai Jazz Festival 2014
Feb 13 - Feb 20, 2014
Dubai International Jazz Festival
- Most popular multi-day festival in the region
- Most rewarded music event with eleven acclaimed awards in its record
The Dubai International Jazz Festival is not only a music festival, but also a system for bringing Jazz to large audiences that wouldn’t normally hear it. The concept was based on two elements: corporate sponsorship, and programming that combines Jazz and other music genres. Its aim was to be the most exciting, groundbreaking and accessible festival of the performing arts in the region, promoting a diversity of cultural music genres, and presenting the highest possible international standard to the widest feasible audience.
The festival successfully evolved throughout its eleven years of existence expanding its artists’ roster to cover nearly every imaginable music style. The festival did not limit its content and structure to the commonly known concerts; it was continuously expanding by adding creative activities to its bills. The festival's list of legendary musicians, Grammy award-winning artists, critically acclaimed Jazz and Contemporary groups, and Pop sensations cover over 40 years of music history. The festival continues to contribute in the publicity of Middle East and Gulf region as a hub for quality live entertainment and festivals with standards. It continues its tradition of initiating fresh and exciting concepts to make the live entertainment experience even more exhilarating for fans.
The 12th Edition of the Emirates Airline Dubai Jazz Festival 2014 will bring A Unique Take on Jazz, Pop and Rock featuring Santana, Stone Temple Pilots with Chester Bennington, Olly Murs, The Wanted, Jamie Cullum, Colbie Caillat and more.
