Hot off the heels of the full line-up for Dubai Jazz Festival being announced, the ever-so-slightly earlier pop festival RedFest DXB has jumped in there to announce its Friday headliners for 2019.

February will see Dubai Media City Amphitheatre play host to some absolutely massive gigs. We already know that Snow Patrol, Jamiroquai and Alicia Keys will be headlining the Dubai Jazz Fest between Wednesday February 20 and Friday 22.

Now, we know that three top acts will be in town to headline day one of annual pop festival RedFest DXB, which last year saw The Chainsmokers, Kesha, Marshmello and Craig David all stroll into town. Tickets are on sale from tomorrow, Thursday December 6, on

Camila Cabello, former member of girl band Fifth Harmony, and the voice behind the outrageously catchy, and phenomenally popular Havana, will be in town on Friday February 15.

Cabello will be joined by top US rapper Macklemore, who was last in the UAE back in 2014 to play in Abu Dhabi, and is best known for his work with Ryan Lewis on the multi-platinum-selling record The Heist, from which the duo found fame with Thrift Shop.

It’s going to be a big one, and we’re expecting more artists to be announced soon, so keep your eyes peeled for ticket information, which will be released soon.
