This year's RedFestDXB features a strong line-up of talented artists. See which other stars are performing at the two-day event.

Thursday

DJ Snake

The French-Algerian decksmith is not the most talkative of performers. In fact, you would be hardpressed to see him so much as crack a smile on stage. But all that matters tomorrow is that he drops a selection of his massive club bangers such as Turn Down for What, Taki Taki and Let Me Love You.

Friday

Jax Jones

The Englishman, who has Turkish and Chinese roots, is building a name for himself as a successful DJ and songwriter. He had a hand in two UK No 1 hits – one as a solo artist with Instruction, featuring Demi Lovato and Stefflon Don, and as a guest artist on Duke Dumont’s I Got You. His new EP, Snacks, features the club hit Ring Ring.

Camila Cabello

The Cuban-American singer knows RedFestDXB well, having performed in 2016 as a member of Fifth Harmony. She left the girl band that year, and the group split in March 2018, days after a show in Abu Dhabi. Cabello returns to Dubai as a triumphant solo star, thanks to her global hit Havana and well-crafted debut album Camila.

Macklemore

This is another artist using the festival to tout his solo artist credentials. After making his name as one half of the Grammy-Award winning rap duo Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Macklemore will mark his debut Dubai performance by dropping tracks from his solo album Gemini. Listen out for the aptly titled, festival-ready anthem Glorious.

Lea Makhoul

The French-Lebanese singer is a regional favourite after being discovered on the 2014 season of Star Academy. She used that profile to launch a solo career and has released an array of singles already, such as the summery pop of Give Me Sun Light, the piano ballad All I Know, and the tropical house beats of Paradise.
