W Hotels are issuing a wake up call and reinventing music festivals

There are few things we love more at CelebMix than listening to music. So when we heard the news that W Hotels are launching their own global music festival series, we were very excited.

Wake Up Call is the worlds first hotel based music festival to embark on a world tour.

With a mix of big-name artists as well as new talent, Wake Up Call will include performances by: Phantogram, Charli XCX, Chromeo (DJ Set), Betty Who, Léon and Dancing Pineapple Presents: Codeko, Papa Ya (DJ Set), Christofi and Phil N Good at W Hollywood; Martin Solveig, Gorgon City, Thomas Jack, Boston Bun and special guest Pete Tong at W Barcelona; and Angus & Julia Stone, Sam Feldt and Nightmares On Wax (DJ Set) at W Bali, with more to be announced soon.

 Wake Up Call will launch in the U.S. festival capital of Los Angeles at W Hollywood before travelling to the iconic seaside haunt of W Barcelona. From there, Wake Up Call will touch down and close out in paradise at the luxe escape of W Bali.  This year’s multi-city tour is an expansion of the inaugural Wake Up Call, the first music festival to be held entirely at a hotel, which took place at W Scottsdale in 2016. This year the party is bigger, better and goes longer than ever before.

W is throwing out the festival playbook and creating an experience where the day begins and ends in luxe accommodations. Where pools of mud are replaced by poolside performances. Where endless seas of people give way to Instaworthy views of the sea. Think day beds, not day passes. In other words, W is giving festival goers a wake-up call!

The fun starts at the W hotel in Hollywood Los Angeles from September 1st – September 3rd.

The party then moves on to the W in Barcelona, Spain from September 21 to the 23.

The final stop is the absolutely stunning W Bali – Seminyak from October 4 to the 6.

What we love about Wake Up Call is the experience will go well beyond the music, serving up the W experience every step of the way. Festival revelers can expect everything from workout sessions with top fitness masters to exclusive dishes and cocktails created by W chefs and mixologists only for festival goers. Wake Up Call combines the pre-party, the main event, and the post-party, all in one. What more could you want from a festival?

W Hotels is bringing this exclusively to members of SPG and Marriott Rewards. But elite membership is not a requirement—by simply joining the program online guests can quickly gain access to everything the festival has to offer.

When you visit www.wakeupcallfest.com, existing members of either program can log in with their account information to get festival access; nonmembers can quickly sign up through SPG.

It sounds like our kind of music festival! Let us know at  @CelebMix if it sounds like yours!
