Full line-up announced for Dubai’s Wake Up Call Festival

Back in July we reported that a huge festival is making its way to one of Dubai’s trendiest hotels in October. W Dubai – The Palm will be hosting the Wake Up Call Festival, and is going to be bringing in some top-quality acts including Rita Ora and Disclosure.

Now, the full line-up for the weekend has been announced, and international phenomenon RÜFÜS DU SOL is also on the bill.

The event has even teased an “all-star culinary line-up that rivals the weekend’s on-stage talent” from restaurants such as Torno Subito and Akira Back. Big food as well as big acts? We’re intrigued.

Even better, room key and ticket holders can check in, then check out performances throughout the hotel – from WET deck DJ parties to main stage live sets – by some of the hottest acts in the music industry today.

“WAKE UP CALL has raised the volume on the festival circuit,” said Anthony Ingham, Global Brand Leader, W Hotels Worldwide.

“Festivalgoers don’t necessarily want to sleep in a field, line-up for a portable toilet or sample the standard festival fast food.

“Our guests want all the playful luxuries of a W Hotel stay whilst they enjoy incredible artists and an authentic festival vibe. WAKE UP CALL offers just that. It’s a truly unforgettable experience that we are excited to bring to our newest hotel in the Middle East, W Dubai – The Palm.”

On the main stage on Friday October 11, Disclosure, Rita Ora and RÜFÜS DU SOL will be going big at 7.45pm, 9.30pm and 11pm respectively, while local DJs Shef Codes and Smoking Groove will be playing at Wet Deck through the early afternoon.
