A large number of festivals have started taking place in Dubai. Music has received special attention because it reflects the diversity Dubai offers. As they say, “Music knows no boundaries”. It was felt that Jazz music is being neglected and so, 'Much more than jazz' came up after 2 years of research and hard work.
This was the foundation of what would soon become the Dubai Jazz Festival. The first edition of the festival was in the year 2003, and since then it hasn’t looked back.
- The festival has a great lineup of legendary jazz musicians.
- It has a dedicated food and drinks area.
- Live gigs are arranged in which international Jazz musicians as well as local performers are lined up to perform.
- Different concerts are arranged each night the festival is held.
