Gorillaz to headline Dubai's Fiesta De Los Muertos
Mark your calendars for 27th October 2017, as the biggest annual Halloween-themed live music festival, Fiesta De Los Muertos, is back and bigger than ever. British virtual band Gorillaz have just been announced as one of the event’s headliners, receiving support from popular Lebanese-Canadian R&B singer Massari and much-loved Mexican musicians The Mariachis. The artists will be seen performing live on the sugar skull-shaped stage of the Dubai Autism Rocks Arena.
Performing in Dubai for the first time ever, the Gorillaz – who consist of two real men in the form of musician Damon Albarn and comic-book artist Jamie Hewlett and four animated fictitious members – have enjoyed a great deal of success since they launched in 2001. Their debut album Gorillaz sold over million copies and earned them an entry into the Guinness Book of World Records as the Most Successful Virtual Band ever. Not that they exactly had much competition.
With four further studio albums, one Grammy Award, two MTV Video Music Awards, an NME Award, and three MTV Europe Music Awards to their name, the Gorillaz have got an entire discography of top tier hits to ensure you enjoy the Day of the Dead by living your life to the fullest.
Don’t worry about anything being too frightfully scary either as the Fiesta De Los Muertos is open to music lovers of all ages (Though children below the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult).
