ALCHEMY PROJECTand MEYDAN are proud to announce the next line up for the much anticipated ATELIER/ FESTIVAL.

ATELIER/ FESTIVALwas first launched in the Middle East in April 2012 with the first event featuring world class music stars performing live together on one stage included Ne-Yo, Leona Lewis, Taio Cruz, Jay Sean and more. Selling over 15,000 tickets for this concert and receiving very positive feedback all round, ATELIER/ FESTIVAL had begun.

The next edition of the Music Festival is confirmed for Friday 19th October 2012 at Meydan Racecourse. The line up of artists is proving to be even bigger than the first festival and has evoked much excitement across the region already.

Mac S. Far, Managing Director for Alchemy Project and Founder of Atelier/Festival says, �Planning started in early May for the Fall Edition of the Festival. Arranging a festival with the best international artists is extremely difficult. Fine tuning the music flow, being able to catch all artists on their available dates and most importantly, being able to deliver the right chemistry in the line up is extremely difficult, but always possible. A quality that Atelier/Festival is known to do best. Personally, I think that the Line up for this Festival, is even stronger than the previous one, with a more urban twist.�

ATELIER/ FESTIVAL on 19th October is headlined by the legendary 50 Cent. Appearing live with his G-Unit team (tony Yayo, Kidd Kidd, Paris) they are planning for a truly epic show.� Initially discovered by Eminem, 50 Cent has gone on to be a multi million record selling artist around the world and is the first solo artist to have three singles on the Billboard top five in the same week with "Candy Shop", "Disco Inferno", and "How We Do". A true legend.

50 Cent says, "I'm excited to be headlining the Atelier/Festival in October. It's been great working with the Alchemy Project. I love visiting Dubai.�
Joining him will be the one and only Nelly, another Billboard favourite and global music star performing in the Middle East for the first time, exclusively with ATELIER/FESTIVAL. Nelly is one of the best-selling male artists in American music history with 21 million albums sold in the US alone and is best known for the smash hits �Hot In Here�, �Dilemma� and �Work It�. Nelly has rightfully been referred to by Peter Shapiro as "one of the biggest stars of the new millennium".

In addition, the beautifulCiara will be lighting up the stage with her acclaimed live performance show. Her worldwide hits �Love Sex Magic�, �1, 2 Step� and �Goodies� place her up there with the best female RnB pop vocalists of all time. Ciara has attained eight Billboard Hot 100 top-ten singles, 3 MTV Video Music Awards, 3 MOBO Awards, and 1 Grammy Award. Her stage show is truly brilliant and will be very memorable.

Bringing her own style of Soulful Pop to the line up is worldwide number one selling artist Duffy, performing in the Middle East for the very first time exclusively with ATELIER/FESTIVAL . Her debut Grammy winning album has sold multi platinum all around the world with the hits �Mercy� and Warwick Avenue� huge radio favourites everywhere.� Duffy�s soulful voice and magnetic stage presence make her an absolute star, and one of the best live stage performances you will see.

Also joining this star studded line up is the stunning Eva Simons and the #1 selling artist Craig David. Eva Simons has one of the most infectious pop/ dance vocals on radio at the moment has had huge global success with singles including �Take Over Control� and �This Is Love� with

Craig David, Grammy nominated RnB pop singer with international #1 hits spanning over a decade, adds even more to the line up. His new studio album is scheduled for release in early 2013 and he joins the ATELIER/FESTIVAL line up to showcase the old and new hits.
