Wake Up Call 10 Reasons Why Wake Up Call Is the Best Music Festival of the Summer

Imagine… All the best names in music. All performing in one place. All without the dust, inescapable heat, and questionable bathrooms of a typical music festival. W’s Wake Up Call is just that – a non-stop weekend music festival that’s unlike any other, featuring a hot lineup of your favorite bands and DJs happening in the dreamy, comfortable, and luxe oasis of a W Hotel around the world.

Wake Up Call is the only music festival that takes place entirely in a hotel, creating an all-access experience in one place – without the hassle of festival life. Party and dance on the WET Deck to performances by all-star musicians like Angus & Julia Stone, Phantogram, and Charli XCX. Skip the line and go behind the scenes during killer sets and intimate talks with DJs like Martin Solveig and Chromeo. Experience VIP meet and greets, celebrity trainer workout sessions, delicious cocktails from dusk till dawn, and accommodations that are actually comfortable.



With three unstoppable lineups coming to W Hollywood on September 1 – 3, W Barcelona on September 21 – 23, and W Bali – Seminyak on October 4 – 6, this festival is a wake-up call for the senses, and an experience you’ll never forget.


To celebrate, we’ve rounded up the top 10 reasons why Wake Up Call is the only summer music festival you should be attending this year…or ever.

10 Reasons Why Wake Up Call is the Summer Music Festival of your Dreams

1. Don’t just watch, be a part of the action. Meet and greets with your favorite artists, suite parties, and off-site adventures curated by festival talent. Here, being VIP gets you more than just a bracelet.

2. The cocktails won’t run out when the ice melts… because the ice won’t melt.

3. You’re not trapped in a remote desert. Wake Up Call is at W Hotels in the heart of Los Angeles, Barcelona, and Bali, so if you need a break to check out the city, we’ll show you where to explore.

Bali beach vibes are the perfect festival atmosphere

4. No gross bathrooms. In fact, you might want to hang out in them…

5. Talk about a trip. Beyond the music, we’ve got intimate panel talks, enlightening DJ masterclasses, and Insider experiences that really expand your mind.

Barcelona bedroom views are the ultimate escape

6. Luxe accommodations, a plush top mattress, and 350-thread-count Egyptian cotton sheets – just an elevator ride away from the action.

7. Real. Good. Food. Seriously… our award-winning chefs and mixologists will be serving up the best festival cuisine you could dream of.

8. No heat stroke. Just take a dip in the WET Deck pool while you groove to keep it chill all day long.

9. Detox.Retox. Repeat. Experience workouts with top fitness masters with views of the ocean or cityscape. It’s more fun than burning off the festival food calories by hiking to the main stage.
