Top International artists for Day 1 revealed


Dubai Tuesday 27th September: Virgin Radio RedFestDXB has announced the massive lineup for day one of the music festival.

Confirmed to perform on Thursday February 2nd is Grammy Award winning and multi-platinum-selling singer/songwriter Chris Brown.

Chris Brown recently made his sixth No.1 album entry on the Billboard R&B and Hip-Hop chart with his latest release ROYALTY.

Supporting Chris on the opening night will be the 16-year-old singer and songwriting superstar Daya. Her debut single “Hide Away” combines simplistic synth melodies, a power hook with emotionally charged vocals.

The Thursday line-up will also feature the Australian chart-topping twins The Veronicas. Electropop, pop rock duo from Brisbane will make their first appearance in Dubai. With a quarter of a million Instagram followers these chart topping twins are sure to end the Virgin Radio RedFestDXB party on a high.

“We launched this festival in 2014, yet it is already one of the most talked about annual music events regionally. The line-up we have organized for 2nd and 3rd February 2017 is very exciting and once again we have surpassed ourselves in attracting some of the biggest, best and most exciting current artists”, says Managing Director of Done Events Girish Anil Bhat.
