Fiesta De Los Muertos, the biggest annual Halloween-themed live music festival, makes its highly anticipated return to the 117Live Arena for an aural and visual spooktacular on October 26th, with a stellar line-up, including pop phenomenon Nick Jonas, Grammy winner R&B superstar Miguel, Gente De Zona, Chantel Jeffries, The Mariachis, and Hollaphonic.
Not content to rest on the roaring success of the event’s previous two editions, 117Live is ready to go bigger, bolder and louder this year with a line-up as diverse as it is sensational.
Pop superstar Nick Jonas is sure to have skulls shaking and skeletons groovin’ as he unleashes his stacked catalogue of hits on fans at Fiesta De Los Muertos. After rising to fame with boyband megastars The Jonas Brothers, he has gone on to enjoy massive worldwide success as a solo artist with his unmistakable fusion of pop and R&B. His hit singles include ‘Jealous’ and ‘Close’, and the collaborative anthem, ‘Right Now’, with Robin Schulz.
Over the last decade, Miguel has established himself as a global R&B superstar, winning a Grammy for his hit single, Adorn, which has been RIAA certified 2x Platinum and is just one of his twelve songs to hit the Billboard Hot 100. Having been nominated for a Grammy award ten times, it’s no surprise Miguel’s last two albums debuted at number 1 on Billboard’s R&B Albums Chart. His last album, Wildheart, debuted at number 2 on Billboards top 200 albums and his fourth studio effort, War & Leisure, has been met with widespread critical acclaim. To top it all off, Miguel’s live performances have become the stuff of legend, earning rave reviews all over the world – something the Fiesta De Los Muertos crowds will have the privilege of witnessing.
Concert-goers will also be able to bask in the Latino brilliance of Cuban reggaetón sensations Gente de Zona, the first Cuba-based musical act to ever top Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart. Their fusion of traditional Cuban beats and genres with reggaetón and Caribbean beats has built them a mass following around the world, and their single – ‘La Gozadera’ – in collaboration with Marc Anthony has amassed over a billion views on Youtube. Joining them will be American EDM DJ Chantel Jeffries, whose hip-hop-infused dance music, supreme skills, and hit single, ‘Wait’, has led to her rapid rise to fame as an internationally renowned DJ.
Much-loved Mexican maestros The Mariachis will return to the festival with their traditional flair and thrilling up-tempo covers to keep the party rocking. The South American four-piece have built a massive following after gaining a reputation as the go-to mariachi band for major UK TV shows. Finally, due to popular demand, Dubai’s own hometown heroes, Hollaphonic will once again showcase their signature beats that have put them on the pedestal of the local electronic music scene. The two-piece have garnered a huge following and are considered local legends of the UAE music scene, having performed at the Dubai World Cup Night, Creamfields Abu Dhabi, and many more momentous events.
