BREAKING! Stormzy joins the Fiesta de los Muertos line-up
Just when we thought the line-up for the annual Fiesta de los Muertos extravaganza couldn't get any better, UK star Stormzy is added to the list!
The grime and hip hop award-winner is the latest major name to be added to the bill, joining the likes of Gorillaz and Massari.
Nick Jonas is no longer performing at Fiesta de los Muertos
Unfortunately Nick Jonas will no longer be perfoming at the event. The Jealous singer released the following statement:
"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"
Sob! It's all good though becuase we've got the Gorillaz, Stormzy and more to dance along to!
Fiesta de los Muertos is a Halloween-themed concert taking place on 27 October at the Autism Rocks Arena on a sugar skull-shaped stage. More info here.
Virtual band Gorillaz already help make up the impressive line-up, with the help of Lebanese-Canadian R&B singer Massari, Mexican musicians The Mariachis and electronic UK duo Arcade82, who are based in Dubai.
If you don't know (and, seriously where have you been hiding?) Gorillaz are an award-winning British, launched in 2001, created by musician and ex-Blur frontman Damon Albarn and comic-book artist Jamie Hewlett. Their debut album Gorillaz sold over a million copies and earned them an entry into the Guinness Book of World Records as the Most Successful Virtual Band ever. Winners.
Stormzy, who bagged a MOBO for Best Grime Act and whose hits include Big For Your Boots and the anthem Shut Up, will be heading over to the sandpit for spooky fun at Fiesta, too.
