Nick Jonas cancels Dubai gig (but Stormzy is coming instead)
We’re okay with that trade…
American singer Nick Jonas will no longer be part of the Fiesta De Los Muertos festival line up. Back in July, Nick Jonas was announced as the second act for Fiesta De Los Muertos, joining legendary British band the Gorillaz. However, we’ve now found out that the American singer songwriter will no longer take part in the festival.
In a statement the, 24-year-old Nick regrettably announced “due to an unforeseen change in my work schedule, I am unfortunately no longer able to join you all in Dubai during Fiesta De Los Muertos. I hope to be able to make this up to you another time”.
However, it’s not all bad news.
Halloween-themed live music festival, Fiesta De Los Muertos, has confirmed that British grime star Stormzy has been added to the line up. Best known for his freestyle single Shut up, (and his contribution to this year’s Love Island), the grime artist is politically-aware, great live and is definitely worth heading down for.
His debut album launched earlier this year and was the first grime album to reach number one on the UK Album Chart. He’s also collaborated with the likes of Wretch 32 and is also known for his remix of Shape of You with Ed Sheeran.
And he’s not the only artist that has been added to the line up. Dubai-based Consoul Trainin will be bringing a touch of electronic dance music to Fiesta De Los Muertos.
And UK electronic duo Arcade 82 have also been confirmed. Based in Dubai, they produce, write and perform their unique style of Downtempo Deep House live with synths, electric drums, sampling pads and vocals.
