The 3rd du World Music Festival drew to a magnificent end, with Amr Diab, accompanied by Emirati artist Hussein Al Jasmi (du Ambassador to Hearts of the People) and emerging star Shamma Hamdan, delivering a sell-out performance at Dubai Media City Amphitheatre.

Insatiable crowds braved the rain and clamoured for more as the three sensational celebrities sang hit after hit, leaving their fans absolutely thrilled with such a fabulous closing ceremony to what has been a fortnight of international musical excellence.

Hala Badri, Executive Vice President, Brand and Communications, du, thanked fans for turning up despite the rain. “Our hopes with the 3rd du World Music Festival were to bring together an international panel of the world’s finest artists, that would reflect the diverse interests of our more than six million customers, as well as the culturally vibrant population of the UAE. We sought not only the finest talents from around the world, but brought to light some of the UAE and Arab world’s most popular artists, to promote Dubai as the premiere destination in the region for live entertainment. We are so pleased with the success of this year’s du World Music Festival. The tremendous turnout at all of the concerts and the incredible performances by the artists make us very eager for the fourth edition of the du World Music Festival, which we’re sure will be even bigger and better than ever before!”
