British talent show host and singer Rita Ora and American rapper 50 Cent are the first headliners announced for Virgin Radio RedFest DXB, which returns to Dubai Media City on February 11 and 12.

Billed as the Middle East's biggest music festival, RedFestDXB began in 2012 with The Lumineers and Jessie J as the first headlining acts, and has since featured performers such as The Script, Iggy Azalea, and Tinie Tempah. Held over two days, the festival also features street food vendors and stalls, and closing DJ sets by renowed acts such as Mark Ronson.
The festival marks a return of 50 Cent - aka Curtis Jackson - who was last in Dubai at the Atelier Festival in 2012, according to The National. British actress and singer Rita Ora has been a more frequent visitor to the UAE, having performed at last year's RedFestDXB in 2014 and at Sandance NYE in 2012.

Also on the bill is Dutch singer Eva Simons who appears on Afrojack’s hit Take Over Control and on Will.i.am's UK number one 'This is Love'.

BBC Radio 1's legendary DJ MistaJam, a favorite at festivals such as Glastonbury and clubs such as Space in Ibiza, will be closing the festival with his masterful multi-genre sets.
