Ace pop stars will.i.am and Timbaland sign up for new event on Dubai's musical calendar

Dubai Music Week, dubbed the region's first music industry tradeshow and conference, will make its debut with some right screaming and shouting  will.i.am and Timbaland headline the event in the UAE this September! 

While he first made a splash as Black Eyed Peas' frontman, will.i.am has since worked with scores of top names in the music world including Britney Spears and Justin Bieber; meanwhile, Timbaland, who produced Justin Timberlake's The 20-20 Experience and Jay-Z's most recent album Magna Carta Holy Grail, is a true music phenomenon.  


Presented by top music producer Quincy Jones, Dubai Music Week will be "an eclectic series of events targeting music fans and the music industry in the region", in the words of its organisers. 

In addition to the headlining international talent, Jones will host a series of seminars by celebs and industry pioneers and a number of conferences in association with Midem, Europe’s leading Music Conference.

More headline performances are expected to be announced soon, watch this space for updates!
