“With the great reception of ‘Darkness and Light’ album, we found that adding him to our lineup is a big reward to his growing fan base in the Middle East,” said Anthony Younes, Founder and CEO of Chillout Productions.

The show’s organisers had earlier announced synth pop act Duran Duran would headline day one of the show which runs from 21-23 February at the Dubai Media City Amphitheatre.

The third headline act for the 16th edition of the festival is yet to be announced. Fans can enjoy 'early bird promo from December 11, 12pm until December 13, 12pm exclusively from www.dubaijazzfest.com
