DUBAI: The lineup for the 2020 edition of RedFest DXB has just been announced and it looks set to be a night to remember.

Atlanta rapper Young Thug, Dutch DJ Martin Garrix and British indie pop band Bastille are the lead acts set to take the main stage on day one of the two-day musical festival taking place in Dubai on Feb. 6 and 7.

The impressive bill will also include American rapper Machine Gun Kelly, UK grime artist Stormzy, electronic musical trio Cheat Codes and UAE-based DJ Dany Neville, who are closing out the two-day event on Feb. 7.

RedFest DXB is no stranger to pulling in big names for their annual concert series. Last year saw Camila Cabello and Macklemore delight crowds at the Dubai Media City Amphitheatre.

In addition to the extensive lineup, attendees can also enjoy some of the best street food from across the Middle East and take part in plenty of interactive installations.

Gaultier shared a video on his Instagram this week inviting his followers to attend the show and celebrate the end of his half-century career with him. “It is going to be a party with my friends, and we are going to have fun until very, very late.”

He then went on to announce his farewell. “Now I am going to share something with you. This will be my last haute couture show. Be there! You can’t miss this,” he said. “However, stay tuned, Gaultier Paris will go on. The haute couture continues. I have a new concept and I will tell you about it later.”
