Kesha and Marshmello Will Headline Day 2 of RedFestDXB 2018

Excited about RedFest DXB 2018 yet?! The big news today is that superstar Kesha will be joining the line-up of performers at next year’s 2-day festival. She will take the stage on day two while EDM-pop duo The Chainsmokers headline the opening night.

Virgin Radio RedFest DXB is taking place on Thursday, February 8 and Friday, February 9 of next year. The two-day event will feature a massive line-up of star performances at Dubai Media City Amphitheatre, with more headlining acts to be announced in the coming days and weeks.

Kesha makes a RedFest DXB comeback

The ‘Tik Tok’ singer will perform on day two of the festival on February 9. This is something of a comeback for Kesha as she releases her first new music in years. She was scheduled to perform in Dubai in 2014 before cancelling abruptly following problems with her record company.

Joining her on stage for day two of the festival will be Marshmello, a DJ best known for wearing a custom helmet during performances. He’ll be playing hits from his debut album Joytime, along with other hot mixes.

British singer-songwriter Craig David will also be making an appearance on Friday. The Walking Away hitmaker will be performing a mix of classic jams and new tracks. David is an incredible live performer – it’s going to be a great set!

Also performing will be Bebe Rexha, best known for collaborations with other artists, such as G-Eazy’s Me, Myself & I, David Guetta’s Hey Mama, Martin Garrix’s In the Name of Love. 

The Chainsmokers will open on Day 1

We’re also excited about The Chainsmokers performing here. The American DJ duo have had an absolutely massive year off the back of hits like CloserParis and Don’t Let Me Down. Made up of producers Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall, the boys will be performing on Thursday, February 8.

Other artists set to take the stage on day one of RedFest including French-Lebanese vocalist Anthony Touma, American rapper Russ and British singer Kelli-Leigh.

More acts will be announced shortly… watch this space for updates!
