Dubai’s Halloween themed music festival Fiesta De Los Muertos is taking place at the Autism Rocks Arena on 26th October, with Nick Jonas confirmed as the headliner.
Massive success after Jonas Brothers split
With his brothers Joe and Kevin, the trio ‘The Jonas Brothers’ emerged as one of the most succesful teen bands in the late 2000s until they decided to pursue their music careers individually in 2013. Since then, Nick Jonas released his self titled album in 2014 and ‘Last Year Was Complicated’ in 2016. Both the albums established the youngest Jonas brother as one of the most prominent pop stars in the world, with popular tracks like ‘Jelous,’ ‘Close’ and ‘Find You.’
Gente de Zona headlining Fiesta Des Los Muertos
Cuban reggaeton duo Gente De Zone are performing at the Halloween-themed music festival too. Tracks like ‘Si No Vuelves,’ ‘Piensas’ and ‘Traidora’ became big hits on YouTube and their 2015 party anthem ‘La Gozadera’ amassed one billion views. Some of their A-lister collaborations include Jennifer Lopez, for the song ‘Ni Tu Ni Yo’ and Enrique Iglesias for the song, ‘Bailando.’
What’s more, the international line-up includes Chantel Jeffries and The Mariachis. Chantel Jeffries is one of the newer DJs on the block, who’s hit single ‘Wait’ peaked at No. 10 on Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart. The Mariachis, who performed at last year’s edition, are confirmed to headline again, expect more covers of pop classics with a ‘Mexican Twist,’ including Human League’s ‘Don’t You Want Me,’ East 17’s ‘Stay Another Day’ and Joan Jett’s ‘I Love Rock & Roll.’ Lastly, the concert will end with a closing set from UAE’s homegrown DJ duo, Hollaphonic.
