It’s just a couple of weeks until two of the most awaited music festivals in the UAE commence- the Dubai Desert Rock Festival
and theSkywards Dubai International Jazz Festival (2009)
. A lot of head bangers and jazz connoisseurs are booking theirDubai tour packages
with us to get to the venues in time.
Internationa; Festival 2009
Motörhead are planning to kick start the 2-day Dubai Desert Rock on March 6, while the Jazz festival headlined by James Blunt is expected to start earlier from February 25. Accompanying these notable artists are acts like Chimaira (US), Scarab (Egyptian), Sarah Mitchell (UK) and Mike Stern (US).
The rock and metal scene in Dubai is worth a mention here as the Dubai Desert Rock is the only festival of its kind in the Middle East. Since 2004, a succession of bands like Sepultura, Metallica, The Rasmus and Velvet Revolver has entertained the Emirati rock aficionados.
If you are visiting the Emirate for a Dubai City tour
around this time of the year, then you might want to catch this year’s acts in all their writhing, screaming glory.
To parch your throat and keep in time with the spirit of rock, you could head to watering holes like Hard Rock Café on Sheikh Zayed Road or Touch to hear Pilipino, Australian, Canadian and even local bands belting out well orchestrated numbers.
For music enthusiasts sightseeing in Dubai
can be a good experience, given its love for concerts and international acts. Make ahotel booking in UAE
before February 25 though if you want to enjoy the jazz and rock festivals respectively.
