Dance the night away at the musical showcase at Dubai Marina, 15-24 December 2016

Following the success of the 2015 edition, Dubai Marina Music Festival is back in another showcase of regional and international talent, proving free entertainment and enjoyment to residents and visitors of Dubai Marina from 15-24 December.

Dubai Marina Mall welcomes an exciting 2016 line-up, which includes a host of new talents, with crowd favourites also returning for another year; from Open Mic, DJ sets and street performers.

These are just some of the amazing musicians to be seen at the 2016 Dubai Marina Music Festival:

Sherif – handpan artist

The first big handpan musician in the region, Sherif has been wowing audiences throughout the Middle East for more than two years, with the hypnotic sounds created by the unique instrument.

The Boxtones

Living in Dubai, The Boxtones are signed to Universal Music MENA and have won Rolling Stone magazine’s ‘street to stage’ competition and opened for The Rolling Stones at Yas Island in 2014.

Harget Kart

Regional headliner, Harget Kart, bring their Jordanian fusion of Arabic and English hits, adding their own twist – an act not-to-be-missed!

YouTube Sensations from Australia

Dubai Marina Music Festival is bringing not one, but two, incredible acts all the way from Australia, exclusively for the festival! Pipe Guy brings his home-made PVC pipe instrument, which he plays using a pair of flip flops, as it they were drumsticks; whilst street drummer, Gordo, uses buckets to create his musical masterpieces.


In addition to the incredible talent, there will also be food trucks; and a music bazaar where music lovers can browse and purchase original music, music equipment and memorabilia. Helping Dubai’s up-and-coming talent to reach the ears of many, Dubai Marina Music Festival also gives musicians a chance to showcase their tracks at the bazaar.
