DUBAI – Global Village on Monday (July 27) announced the opening of registrations to join the world’s largest rock band, Rockin’1000.
Confirmed to play the opening event of Global Village’s Silver Jubilee season on October 30, the rock band will sign up hundreds of budding stars from the UAE for the historic concert.
Rockin’1000’s Global Gig will feature 2500 artists from around the world to celebrate the power of community and cultural inclusion.
Global Village will reopen on October 25, with the virtual concert to be live-streamed from the Main Stage at the Park. People the world over can enjoy the concert online too.
Jaki Ellenby, Executive Director of Marketing and Events, Global Village, said: “Global Village is all about bringing people and cultures together. So for our 25th season we wanted to find a way to bring as many people as possible from around the world to celebrate with us here in Dubai. We want to promote the spirit of togetherness through music – a community event transcending social differences, geographical borders, generation gaps, and other discriminations between peoples.”
Rockin’ 1000 was created by Fabio Zaffagnini five years ago when he brought together 1,000 musicians to play in his home city of Cesena to convince his favourite band, the Foo Fighters, to add Cesena to their tour plan.
Little did he imagine that what started as a stunt, would become a world-wide phenomenon and that Rockin’1000 would soon play some of the biggest stadiums in the world.
Singers or musicians of any level can take part in this unique event, by going to the Rockin’1000 website to sign up on www.rockin1000.com. ICA/Expat Media
