05th July, Dubai – Mark your calendars for 27th October 2017, as the biggest annual Halloween-themed LIVE music festival, Fiesta De Los Muertos, is back and will be bigger than ever. 117Live announces the legendary British virtual band Gorillaz as one of the headliners supported by the popular Lebanese-Canadian R&B singer Massari and much-loved Mexican musicians The Mariachis. The artists will be seen performing LIVE on the spooky-styled, Fiesta sugar mask shaped stage at the Dubai Autism Rocks Arena.
Performing their full Iive show here for the first time ever, Gorillaz is an award-winning British visual band by musician Damon Albarn – of Blur fame- and legendary comic-book artist Jamie Hewlett. The band consists of four animated fictitious members and have enjoyed smash-hit success since they launched in 2001. Their debut album Gorillaz sold over million copies and earned them an entry into the Guinness Book of World Records as the Most Successful Virtual Band ever. Their success followed with a second album Demon Days that went five times platinum in the UK and double platinum in the US. In addition, the band has won one Grammy Award, two MTV Video Music Awards, an NME Award and three MTV Europe Music Awards among many others. Hit classics include Feel Good Inc, Clint Eastwood. The recently released 14-track album Humanz comes seven years after the release of their album The Fall and Plastic Beach.
Also with a starring role at Fiesta De Los Muertos is Massari, the Lebanese Canadian R&B / Pop singer who is internationally known for his Middle Eastern influenced and high-energy tracks including So Long in collaboration with the former Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach and the popular new single Done Da Da from his US Debut Album ‘Beirut’ named after the capital of his native Lebanon.
Back by popular demand, The Mariachis will be bringing their Mexican inspired beats to the music festival with their floor-filling up-tempo covers and authentic, colourful costumes.
