Over Labor Day Weekend we kicked off Wake Up Call Festival at W Hollywood, where the WET Deck was as full as the rosé glasses, and some of the world’s hottest DJs helped partygoers sweat off their sunscreen.
Whether dancing at the WET Deck or lounging in the Living Room, there was music, vibes and eats anywhere you turned. If you didn’t make it out and need a fresh filling of FOMO, here are five highlights from the weekend.
1. For her headlining set Charli XCX, rocking her finest pink get up, offered up smash hits like “Fancy” and “Boom Clap” as well as bops from her critically acclaimed mixtape, Pop 2. Fans were clearly here for it, as the rooftop began vibrating from the sound of feet repeatedly hitting the ground and hands hitting each other. (When Charli tells you to clap hard, you do as you’re told.)
2. Wake Up Call isn’t just about entertainment. Elite Bonvoy members got access to some epic experiences, which sometimes are as awesome as they are educational. Hours before their late-night DJ set, Montreal duo Chromeo gave an intimate DJ Masterclass in the Sound Suite, guiding budding beats heads through the ins and outs of rocking the crowd. Not a member?

3. During an evening set in the Living Room presented by Billboard, fans popping in to enjoy the air conditioning caught a powerhouse performance from rising indie-pop songwriter Ashe, who offered a sonic pick-me-up with her single “Sometimes People Suck,” only to then break hearts with her ballad “Real Love.” She’ll be headlining festivals before long and Wake Up Call attendees can brag about discovering her first.
