Dubai, UAE, Sunday 18th January:
Done Events and Virgin Radio 104.4 today announced the final artists who will perform at Virgin Radio’s RedFestDXB. The festival staged in association with Emirates Airlines, have announced that all girl group G.R.L. and DJ & hotshot Producer Wilkinson will complete the star-studded main stage line up.
With their fun-loving, irreverent debut style, all girl group G.R.L pop chart domination took off in 2014, with their world wide radio hit “Ugly Heart” along with debut single “Vacation” and collaboration with Pit Bull on “Wild Wild Heart”. G.R.L. released a brand new video today for their new single “Lighthouse”, the video is a touching tribute to G.R.L.’s Simone Battle who passed away tragically a few months ago. Directed by Daniel Carberry, the video premiered today on Vevo worldwide and “Lighthouse” is available now.
UK based Drum ‘n’ Bass DJ / Producer Wilkinson turned heads after landing a huge hit with ‘Afterglow’ in 2013, which was a Top ten hit and club-land staple in the UK. The fast-rising, hotly tipped Wilkinson, is considered one of the hottest names in dance right now, aside from his solo work, which also includes UK Top 40 singles “Half Light” and “Dirty Love”, has also remixed Chase & Status and Example amongst others to both critical and commercial acclaim.
Touring worldwide from Sydney to Berlin, Barcelona to Brighton and now to Dubai, Wilkinson live is known for his dynamic and energetic DJ sets. Thomas Ovesen, COO of Done Events said, “G.R.L. are back and as they release their new single, as tribute to Simone, and their new 4-piece line up, we are excited to add both them and Wilkinson to the RedFestDXB 2015 line up.
“When you think Virgin Radio RedfestDXB can’t get any bigger, it proves you wrong again, these two new addition to the Redfest line up just shows how influential this festival has become in the region” commented Steve Smith, COO Arabian radio Network The festival now represents nothing short of an artist extravaganza with yet more exciting announcements still to come we are fast approaching what will be the NOT TO BE MISSED event of 2015!!”
