Chillout Productions on Tuesday announced that Irish rock band, The Script, is the latest big name to sign up to the 2013 Emirates Airline Dubai Jazz Festival.
The festival organisers said in a statement that the band will perform on the last day of the festival - February 22.
Other headliners at the festival will include legendary rock band Deep Purple, 3 Doors Down and OneRepublic.
"This year's Emirates Airline Dubai Jazz Festival will feature one of the region's most diverse musical showdowns, while luring music lovers from all across the Middle East," said Anthony Younes, CEO at Chillout Productions.
The Script has had a number of hits on the UK, US and Irish charts, as well in the UAE charts.
"We are pleased to welcome them to one of the finest music festivals in the region which hosted some of the world's greatest musicians over a period of 10 years," said Younes.
The Irish band consists of lead singer Danny O'Donoghue, Mark Sheehan on guitar and Glen Joseph on drums.
At the festival, the band will be playing some of their hits including Hall Of Fame, The Man Who Can't Be Moved, Breakeven, and Nothing.
This year, the band released their third studio album entitled #3. Two weeks after its release, the album's lead single became the band's first UK Number 1 hit.
Next year's event will feature 27 acts between February 14-22 at Festival Park, Dubai Festival City.
Last year, more than 48,000 fans attended the event, a number that is expected to increase to over 50,000 next year.
