RedFest 2017 Line Up @ Dubai Media City Amphitheatre on 2nd-3rd Feb 2017
Virgin Radio RedFestDXB is the UAE’s number one hit music festival. Launched in 2014 with headliners The Lumineers and Jessie J taking to the main stage, it is now Dubai’s critically acclaimed number one music festival.
Set to take place on 2 & 3 February 2017 at the Dubai Media City Amphitheatre, we suggest you block your calendars now for Virgin Radio RedFestDXB 2017. Seven of the world’s hottest artists are set to perform at the region’s leading music festival. Sean Paul, G-Eazy, Daya, The Veronicas, Demi Lovato, Mike Posner, Alessia Cara and Tove Lo are all confirmed to play.
THURSDAY, 2nd February 2017:
Sean Paul’s distinct voice, catchy rhythms, and first class productions have been the perfect blend for the success of this Grammy Award-winning Jamaican international superstar. He collaborated with Sia for one of the biggest hits of 2016, ‘Cheap Thrills’ and more recently with Clean Bandit for the world wide smash ‘Rockabye’. Add to this his plethora of solo hits including ‘Temperature’ and ‘Get Busy’, this performance is not to be missed.
G-Eazy, known as the “James Dean of rap” Gerald Earl Gillum (born May 24, 1989), is an American rapper, songwriter and record producer from Oakland, California. G-Eazy got his big break when he released his mixtape ‘The Endless Summer’ in 2011, which earned him the chance to go on tour with Drake and Lil Wayne. His first major-label album, ‘These Things Happen’ was released on June 23, 2014. In the summer of 2016, while on tour with Logic, YG, and Yo Gotti, Eazy appeared on Britney Spears’ comeback single “Make Me.”
Daya drives pop music down a different path. Perhaps, it’s a result of her classical piano training,the fact that her multi-ethnicity has been the catalyst for family visits across the globe, or a natural cleverness that’s as striking as her dynamic vocal range. It could just be due to the fact that this 16 year old singer and songwriter has always known what she wanted to do.
You know that first rush of love, the intoxicating buzz automatically generated by meeting someone special. Pop artisans The Veronicas have freeze-framed that precise moment in their thrilling new single In My Blood. The duo have fallen back in love with what’s on the radio, especially as mainstream pop has moved into a territory they’re familiar with – pushing the envelope.
FRIDAY, 3rd February 2017
Demi Lovato is a singer, songwriter, actress, advocate, philanthropist, and business woman. In addition, she’s one of the biggest names on social media. The multi-platinum selling recording artist’s highly-anticipated fifth studio album, Confident, was released in 2015. Within hours of the release of the first single, Cool for the Summer, the anthem trended worldwide and hit #1 on iTunes in 37 countries. Her previous album, 2013’s Demi, hit #1 on iTunes in over 50 countries around the world – with the lead single Heart Attack earning Platinum status just ten weeks after its release.
