A new festival is set to come to Dubai this October headlined by Rita Ora and Disclosure.

Wake Up Call will be taking place over three days at W Dubai, The Palm, which opened its doors earlier this year.

Rita Ora, who is a regular performer in the UAE and filmed the video for her latest single, New Look, in Dubai, will be bringing her signature energetic performances back to the emirate. While British brother duo Disclosure, made up of Guy and Howard Lawrence, make their long-awaited return for a DJ set, featuring some of their biggest collaborations with the likes of Sam Smith, Lorde and Mary J. Blige. Dance act Rufus Du Sol is also on the bill, with more acts set to be announced.

As well as the music, W Dubai will also be offering a number of special room rates for guests and will be hosting a series of events across the three days. The hotel’s celebrity chef-led restaurants Torno Subito and Akira Back will be involved with festivities, while a special brunch will be held during the festival in true UAE style.

“Festival goers don’t necessarily want to sleep in a field, line-up for a portable toilet or sample the standard festival fast food,” said Anthony Ingham, Global Brand Leader, W Hotels Worldwide. “Our guests want all the playful luxuries of a W Hotel stay whilst they enjoy incredible artists and an authentic festival vibe.”

More details and a full schedule are set to be released over the coming weeks.
