There is good news and bad news for Santana ticket-holders desperate to see the legend at the Emirates Airline Dubai Jazz Festival. The bad news, the date is being changed by organisers, the good news is that it means his army of fans get to see him one day early.

Chillout Productions has moved the second weekend of main gigs to one day earlier due what it says is “massive demand and feedback from fans”.

This means that Santana will now perform on February 20, not 21, 2014 and also Jamie Cullum along with Colbie Caillat will perform a day earlier on the 19th. Despite the change, all E-tickets purchased for the acts will remain valid.

Chillout’s CEO Anthony Younes said: “We took this initiative solely for music enthusiasts due to a conflicting scheduled event. We know that some won’t be happy with this decision, especially that we have been the first one to announce the dates of the festival, but we have to take action and respond to the request of thousands of Santana fans.”

In addition, the organisers are also extending the area and are now offering a limited number of VIP Terrace tickets for the public beginning today after making the Santana VIP category a sell out in just few days.

Tickets are now on sale from Ticketmaster, visit www.ticketmaster.ae or call 800-TM-UAE.

The Emirates Airline Dubai Jazz Festival 2014 will run from 13th to 20th of February 2014 at Festival Park - Dubai Festival City.
