American pop rock band One Republic will headline the final night of the Emirates Airline Dubai Jazz Festival 2020 at the Media City Amphitheatre on February 28.

Fans can expect to hear all the tunes from the hit group, which has sold more than 10 million albums worldwide, including Apologize, which was later remixed by Timbaland; All the Right Moves, Counting Stars and I Lived.

The band are no strangers to the event, having headlined and sold out their gig at the Dubai Jazz Festival back in 2013.

They will be supported by US ‘joyful jazz’ outfit Sammy Miller & The Congregation, headed up by Miller, a Grammy Award-winning drummer. 

One Republic will be joined at the three-day event by former Fugees singer Lauryn Hill (February 26) and legendary soul, pop and R&B singer Lionel Richie (February 27).

“What a line-up!” said Girish Bhat, managing director of Done Events, part of the Arab Media Group. “We are incredibly proud of not only our festival headliners but the amazing set of support acts. We can’t wait to see everyone there for what will be an incredible three nights of music.”

Tickets, priced from AED350, are available from www.dubaijazzfest.com and all Virgin Megastores in the UAE.
