Stormzy RedFestDXB

Virgin Radio RedFestDXB returns with Stormzy, Bastille, Martin Garrix and more!

RedFestDXB has once again pulled a genre-spanning line up together including Grime icon Stormzy, UK pop group Bastille and dance music DJ Martin Garrix.

Martin Garrix headlines on Thursday

The two-day festival at Dubai Media City Amphitheatre kicks off on Thursday February 6 with a four artist line up that covers RnB, indie and dance music.

UK rapper Yungen opens the show before handing over to Jonas Blue collaborator Raye. It’s then time for Dubai favourites Bastille to grace the main stage. The British group celebrate a decade of Bastille this year, and what a decade it’s been. Number one albums, Brit Awards and selling nearly 10 million records!

Our favourite is still this epic, timeless slice of pop music from 2013.

The Thursday line up is completed with Young Thug and his alternative hip hop sound and mainstage headliner Martin Garrix. A regular in the Middle East, the fresh-faced DJ is known for his hard-hitting EDM sound. He’s a regular on the international festival circuit playing Creamfields, Coachella, Ultra and Tomorrowland, and will be on hand to close the festival in style. 

Friday is all about Stormzy

RedFestDXB are pulling zero punches with their headliner for their 7th festival confirmed as Stormzy.

Grime icon, Social Media star, political activist and recent Glastonbury headliner – Stormzy is the people’s champion and one of the biggest global music stars. And we can’t wait to see Stormzy headline at RedFestDXB. If his show is even 1% as epic as his Glastonbury show, it will be one of the best shows Dubai has seen in recent years. 

Stormzy is worth the ticket price alone, but there’s a lot more to the lineup. The Voice’s Becky Hill opens up proceedings before handing over to Cheat Codes (an American DJ trio) and Noah Cyrus (Miley’s little sister and a rising pop star). 

Machine Gun Kelly is then on hand to up the ante before handing over to the Grimefather Stormzy. We’re also very, very happy to see local legend Dany Neville close out proceedings with a DJ set on the main stage to cap a truly epic line up.
