Every year in Dubai, music fans assemble to enjoy some of the greatest artists perform at the Emirates Airline Dubai Jazz Festival. Despite its name, the prestigious festival showcases a variety of musical styles to suit every taste. This year, they're celebrating 15 years with an incredible line-up of the industry's biggest names. 

From its humble 1,200 attendees back in 2003, the event has now grown to a capacity of over 36,000 fans across three nights. Festival goers will not only be able to enjoy an eclectic mix of world-class performances, but they'll also do so in an unmatched outdoor setting with an exceptional, laid-back atmosphere and stunning sets.

The Dubai Jazz Festival is one of the biggest events in the Emirate and it makes February one of the best times to be in Dubai.
