We’ve been buzzing about the line-up of events coming our way in the coming months – including Wu-Tang Clan at Sole DXB and Bruno Mars ringing in the new year – and we’ve just been pushed over the edge with the news that the legendary Lauryn Hill will be headlining night one of the Emirates Airline Dubai Jazz Festival (or just the Jazz Festival to you and me) alongside jazz singer-songwriter Bruno Major.
Lauryn Hill became a household name with the Fugees classics Killing Me Softly With His Song and Ready or Not, before gracing us all with her solo album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, which gave us anthems like Doo Wop (That Thing) and Everything is Everything.
The three-day festival has brought us epic performances in the past, including Grammy award-winning Alicia Keys last year, and it’s the perfect opportunity to enjoy cooler weather while listening to some of the best musicians from all over the world.
Information about more acts will be coming out soon, so make sure you check back with us for all the updates. You can buy tickets here from 8am on Wednesday November 6 and be quick – we have a feeling this one’s going to be unmissable.
- Emirates Airline Dubai Jazz Festival, February 26-28. Dubai Media City Amphitheatre.
