Ricky Martin will headline the closing night of the 16th Emirates Airline Dubai Jazz Festival 2018 at the Dubai Media City Amphitheatre.

The singer, who is responsible for bringing Latin music to the forefront of mainstream pop with hits like “Living La Vida Loca”, “The Cup of Life” and “She Bangs”, will play on Friday February 23.

The Puerto Rican singer joins other previously announced headline acts Duran Duran (Wed Feb 21) and John Legend (Thurs Feb 22) for the three-day festival, with supporting acts yet to be announced.

“His first ever performance in Dubai, and at the Emirates Airline Dubai Jazz Festival, will amaze the audience and drive them into frenzy,” said Anthony Younes, founder and CEO of Chillout Productions.

“We felt from last year that the region, especially our Dubai audience, were thrilled with Latino shows and Ricky is not only a singer, he is a great performer who sells big arenas worldwide. Expect him to deliver a sheer musical perfection, as he owns the stage on February 23.”

Fans can enjoy Early Bird Promo starting today, Thursday December 14, 12pm until Saturday December 16, 12pm exclusively from www.dubaijazzfest.com.
