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. RedFestDXB is set over two days, and over the last 3 years, we’ve had artists like The Script, Iggy Azalea, Tinie Tempah, Bastille, Rita Ora, Adam Lambert and Fifth Harmony hit the main stage. Closing set DJ’s included some of the worlds biggest, like Mark Ronson, Zane Lowe, Gorgon City, Wilkinson and Steve Aoki.

There is always plenty to do across the two days. The festival provides some of the best street food vendors across the Middle East, with plenty of eye-catching interactive installations and activations.

Having tried his hand at banking, being a chef and even playing on the Jamaican water polo team, he finally decided to follow the rhythm of his heart and become a singer when he was 21.

Six studio albums, a Grammy award, cornrows, do-rags and a mohawk later, he is now recognized as one of the forces behind the spread of dancehall around the world.

His music has crossed many genres through chart-topping collaborations with artists like Beyoncé, Nicki Minaj, Enrique Iglesias, Major Lazer, Little Mix, Sia and many more. He is most famous for having his world-wide smash Cheap Thrills completely butchered by our very own Kris Fade….

And her parents say as long as she finishes her homework, you can see her on day 1 of RedFestDXB.

She is, Daya.


Born Gerald Earl Gillum, he decided as a teenager the nickname ‘G’ would give him more street cred and a connection to the San Fransisco hip hop scene.

He joined a local group the Bay Boyz, studied music at university and by 2010, at age 21 he went solo, scoring the opening slot for both Lil Wayne and Snoop Dogg’s tours.

Since then, he’s released two major label albums and performed sell-out tours of the US, Canada, and Australia, together with live sets at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards and iHeartRadio Music Festival.

Last year he collaborated with Britney Spears and Bebe Rexa for the world wide smash Me, Myself and I!
