Knowledge story, The Knowledge

Just hours after it was revealed that Jessie J has been added to RedFest DXB’s first day bill – in place of a rehab-bound Ke$ha – there was news of another notable young, British female singer added to the festival’s bumper bill.

Rita Ora – aged 23, two years Jessie’s junior – has been announced as a surprise late headliner for the second day gig, joining The Lumineers and Naughty Boy at Dubai Media City on Friday February 14.

Ora was last spotted in these parts playing at Sandance NYE 2012/13 – pictured above – where she put on a fantastic early evening set packed with hits, including UK number one collaboration with DJ Fresh, ‘Hot Right Now’.

The complete line-up is now:

Thursday February 13
Jessie J
Tinie Tempah
Conor Maynard
Marvin Humes (JLS)

Friday February 14
Rita Ora
The Lumineers
John Newman
Naughty Boy
A-Yo (Mark Ronson & Zane Lowe)
