Stormzy will be joined by a star-studded lineup of today's hit performers
It's an exciting month for fans of UK urban music in Dubai.
After a year since fans last saw him headline Glastonbury Festival, the reigning king of the Grime genre will be embarking on a massive 55-date world tour for his recent album, "Heavy is the Head". Stormzy will kick-start his biggest worldwide tour from Dubai on February 7 at Virgin Radio RedFestDXB 2020, the UAE's #1 hit music festival.
Festival-goers this Friday at the Dubai Media City Amphitheatre will have the chance to witness the raw talent that earned the cerebral MC his crown, along with performances from other hit-makers including Bastille, Young Thug, Martin Garrix, and more.
One of the leading artists of his generation, the British rapper spent some time in London's underground grime scene before he shot to fame with the release of "Shut Up", "Where Do You Know Me From?" and "Big For Your Boots", leading to his critically acclaimed and multi-award-winning debut album, "Gang Signs and Prayers".
As the name of his first LP suggests, Stormzy's work was a vivid, fresh, and thrilling compilation of soul and grime.
The chart-dominating performer has also collaborated with other A-list artists such as Ed Sheeran, dropping the Skrillex-produced "Take Me Back To London" (No. 6 album) as well as "Own It" (Heavy is the Head album) last year.
RedFestDXB is the ultimate hit music festival, bringing fans a two-day party that will end well into the morning with Virgin Radio's resident DJ, Dany Neville.
