Blended – A Festival of Music – to Serenade Dubai


blend (blnd) v. blend·ed – To create a harmonious effect

Blended is another Dubai’s music festival to bring harmonious mixture of music styles whether you are a fan of blues, roots, jazz, soul or folk.

This will be a two-day annual live music extravaganza, and will kick-off on Thursday 1st May with Australian musical legend Xavier Rudd. To join Xavier on this first day are Aloe Blacc, who truly bridges the gap between pop music and a folk/soul fusion, and Joss Stone for a headlining set, famed for her gravelly but lustrous vocals.

Day 2 – 2nd May – brings a blend of Jazz and Rock-and-Roll by the most highly anticipated musical pairing of Diana Krall and Elvis Costello. What makes Blended more special for Diana and Elvis? This is the first time ever that they are performing together on stage. For a mix of classic soul and folk, we can listen to Irish-English singer-songwriter and rapper Maverick Sabre, known for his eerie vocals and guitar playing.

Blended is an all seated event with a range of ticket categories to suit all budgets.

Admission: From Dhs350-Dhs1,500.
Date: Thursday May 1 6pm-2am and Friday May 2 4pm-2am.
Venue:  Dubai Media City Amphitheatre

Itunes offer a Free Download  of ‘Lift your spirit’ – the title track from Aloe Blacc’s new album. Visit this link for downloading instructions.
