WAKE UP CALL: A W Hotels Music Festival marks the first-ever hotel music festival of its kind. The weekend-long event launches at the W’s Scottsdale location, with a follow-up fest to take place in Las Vegas after those digs are complete in 2017. This sleek and modern spot, a beloved go-to for the Scottsdale party crowd, will host a non-stop mix of live performances, meet and greets, pool parties, VIP lounges, and pop up events. Scheduled acts include Bebe, Rexha, De La Soul, Matoma, and Mayer Hawthorne. Cee Lo Green will make the scene to do a DJ set for attendees.
Because of the setting, the peripheral events are a little different than the usual festival options. When you’re not catching a live act or partying on the pool deck, you can get pampered at scattered spa pop-ups or kick your hangover’s ass with a morning cardio drumming workout class, to name just a few. To create a fully immersive experience, the W folks are planning to activate the entire space with both sound and activity throughout the weekend.
