Dubai Airports to showcase five local UAE bands to entertain passengers

Airport operator Dubai Airports has unveiled five up-and-coming UAE bands to entertain passengers at Dubai International Airport as part of its new musicDXB initiative.

The musicDXB program kicked off on November 10, 2015, with a performance by Katy Perry at the Dubai Airshow Gala Dinner. This was later followed by a pop-up performance in the airport’s terminal by UK swing kings Jack Pack.

The new line-up includes local act Abri & Funk Radius, led by frontman Hamdan Al Abri; Omani singer Salha accompanied by the Million Dollar Band; laid-back jazz band The Swing Revue; rock and pop performers Sound City; and soul-band The 808s.

Salha and the Million Dollar Band will perform today (November 25), and will be followed by Abri & Funk Radius on December 5, The Swing Revue on December 9, Sound City on December 12, and The 808’s on December 16, 2015.

Anita Mehra, vice president, communication and business development at Dubai Airports, said, “Katy Perry set the tone with her stellar performance at the gala dinner, followed by Jack Pack’s amazing airport show, and now we will continue the excitement by featuring some of the tremendous talent on hand in Dubai and the UAE.

“We’ve selected very talented artists who represent various genres and cultures, much like the customers we serve and the city we call home. As was the case with Jack Pack, we’re sure our musicDXB acts will start our customers’ travel experience on a high note.”
