Rixton Joins RedFestDXB Line Up
The last couple of weeks have been building up the anticipation for RedFestDXB with amazing performers being confirmed for the 2015 edition. In addition to headline acts including Australian rapper Iggy Azalea, The Script and Kiesza, amongst other high-profile names, the organizers have now confirmed yet another exciting line up addition.
British pop / rock / R&B quartet Rixton were today announced as the seventh artist to join the burgeoning RedFestDXB line up. The soulful group that has been compared to the likes of Maroon 5, Ed Sheeran and Bruno Mars, were formed in Manchester, England in 2012, but it was in the US, where the band first attracted the attention, both of legendary talent manager Scooter Braun, and a legion of fans.
The band's first debut single 'Me and My Broken Heart' which came out in March this year has been a major US success and also became a Top 10 staple in Australia, Sweden and the UK, where it reached number one. Work on a debut album is also underway, which includes the band's new single 'Wait on me'. Rixton's US success was further underlined recently by being nominated for the Teen Choice awards.
Only a few months to go before the highly anticipated music extravaganza hits Dubai and with Ahlan! as the Official Magazine Partner, the Virgin Radio RedFestDXB is a must-visit on your social calendar!
