This year’s music festival in Dubai was lit – well at least that’s how the young crowd at RedFest DXB would describe it. The two-day festival was filled with whos-who of music A-listers at the Dubai Media City Amphitheatre.
Brit pop band Bastille, American rapper Young Thug and Dutch EDM sensation Martin Garrix were the highlight of the first day. Add this to the truly immersive stage lighting and you’ve cracked the winning formula proven to awe the crowds till midnight.
The next day was nothing short of astounding. Highlights of day two kicked off at around 4 pm with artists like Machine Gun Kelly, Cheat Codes and one of the most-streamed British artists of 2019, Stormzy. When you see everyone singing to “Vossi Bop” you know you’re in for a great evening.
All in all, this year’s RedFest had great ambiance, with food trucks, carts and pop-ups situated everywhere, great music and plenty of good vibes for the masses.
