Back in 2016, W Hotels threw the inaugural Wake Up Call music festival on the grounds of the W Scottsdale. It was the first music festival to take place entirely on hotel grounds, and it made use of every amenity the location could offer. This fall the Wake Up Call festival will return in a new three-part iteration, starting at the W Hollywood (1-3 September) before traveling to the iconic W Barcelona (21-23 September) and ending at the sprawling W Bali escape (4-6 October). To best understand the line-up—featuring Phantogram, Charli XCX, Chromeo, Martin Solveig and more—W Hotels has assembled a playlist 53 songs deep. And it’s a party in itself.
Each destination will be more intimate than traditional festivals, pulling in 2,000 to 3,000 attendees at maximum. Tickets are available to members of both Marriott International’s Starwood Preferred Guest and Marriott Rewards loyalty programs. Signing up for membership grants access. There are also premium experiences at each site, and a three-hotel VIP package. Of course, for those who can’t make it, the playlist provides plenty of kicks.
