New WAKE UP CALL festival launches in Dubai with Rita Ora

RUFUS DU SOL and Disclosure (DJ set) will also play

W Hotels Worldwide today announced that WAKE UP CALL - the brand's groundbreaking music festival series - will be held October 10-12 at W Dubai - The Palm. Designed to reward loyal members of Marriot Bonvoy with insider access to the brand's long-standing passion for music, WAKE UP CALL

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

The Line-up

With a mix of big-name artists as well as new/next talent, WAKE UP CALL at W Dubai - The Palm will include performances by RUFUS DU SOL, who will be making their debut performance in Dubai, Rita Ora, and Disclosure (DJ set). Artists will perform for WAKE UP CALL festival goers in settings much more intimate than those of a typical festival environment - like the hotel's incredible WET (pool) deck with sweeping skyline views on the coveted beachfront of The Palm, bringing festival revelers closer to the music than ever before.

This 2019 festival is the next stop on the brand's WAKE UP CALL world tour which kicked off in 2018 in Los Angeles (W Hollywood), Barcelona (W Barcelona) and Bali (W Bali - Seminyak). The festival series has included mind-blowing music performances from top talent including Charli XCX, Phantogram, Martin Solveig, and Tove Lo among others who rocked the global line-up. Additional acts for WAKE UP CALL at W Dubai - The Palm will be announced in the coming weeks.

The Rider

In true W fashion, WAKE UP CALL at W Dubai - The Palm provides every opportunity for playful luxe indulgence - including an all-star culinary line-up that rivals the weekend's on-stage talent. Not your standard festival fare, WAKE UP CALL will offer world-class dishes from Massimo Bottura's Torno Subito and Akira Back's rooftop namesake restaurant, plus a brunch spread decadent enough to cure the aftermath of any non-stop night (or three). Not up for the sit-down experience? Stay in bed, this festival comes with room service.

W shares our guests' passion for living life to the fullest, where fitness and fun are all wrapped together. For the music-lovers who don't want to skip a workout, the multi-day festival includes opportunities to DETOX RETOX REPEAT with FUEL classes set to the weekend's soundtrack. Guests will be able to pick their favorite way to work up a sweat and add trainer-led sessions into their itineraries.

Iconic Venue

Located on the Palm Jumeirah, the largest man-made island in the world and one of Dubai's most iconic attractions, W Dubai - The Palm provides a stunning setting for a festival experience like no other. Poolside sets, main stage acts on the beach and rooftop rhythms at sunset will keep the whole property bumping day and night - an unforgettable experience only a W Hotels music festival can provide.
