Chillout Productions’ 2018 stellar lineup announces multi Platinum and multiple Grammy Award winner Ricky Martin to headline the 16th Emirates Airline Dubai Jazz Festival 2018 on the 23rd of February at the Dubai Media City Amphitheatre. He will perform as part of the three-day music festival, joining headline acts Duran Duran and John Legend, with supporting acts yet to be announced.
Martin is responsible for bringing Latin music to the forefront of mainstream pop with hits like “Living La Vida Loca”, “The Cup of Life” and “She Bangs”. He has sold over 70 million albums worldwide with a track record including 95 platinum records and continues to perform to sold-out stadium and arena audiences throughout the world. His recent single “Vente Pa' Ca” became one of the biggest hits of 2016, topping the charts in Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Guatemala, Mexico, South Korea, Panama, and Venezuela. Martin’s tenth studio album, A Quien Quiera Escuchar, debuted at No. 1. The album won "Best Latin Pop Album" at the 2016 Grammy Awards. In September 2017, Martin wrapped his first headlining residency “ALL IN” at Monte Carlo in Las Vegas.
Martin's charitable work through The Ricky Martin Foundation has earned him worldwide recognition for his humanitarian work.
“His first ever performance in Dubai, and at the Emirates Airline Dubai Jazz Festival, will amaze the audience and drive them into frenzy. We felt from last year that the region, especially our Dubai audience, were thrilled with Latino shows and Ricky is not only a singer, he is a great performer who sells big arenas worldwide. Expect him to deliver a sheer musical perfection, as he owns the stage on February 23“ said Anthony Younes, Founder and CEO of Chillout Productions.
