DUBAI: US Palestinian record producer DJ Khaled, US singer Bruno Mars and rapper Post Malone are set to perform at Riyadh’s SOUNDSTORM, the largest music festival in the region.

The event, which will be held in Banban, will run from Dec. 1 to 3.

Record producers David Guetta, DJ Snake and Carl Cox are returning this year again to perform to their Middle Eastern fans after their record-breaking acts in 2021.

The music sensations will also be joined by DJs Marshmello, Solomun and Wizkid. The lineup also features Saudi women DJs including Biirdperson, DJ Cosmicat, Dorar, Kayan and Solskin alongside their peers Dish Dash, Vinylmode and regional star DJ Aseel. More names are expected to be announced soon.

Chief Operating Officer and head of talent booking at MDLBEAST Talal Albahiti said in a statement: “Saudi Arabia’s music scene has been thriving for the past two decades behind closed doors. With every edition of SOUNDSTORM, we further blow these doors wide open. It’s incredibly special to see music lovers enjoy this new reality, in a safe space with the highest standards of music entertainment.”

“Talent is at the heart of everything we do at MDLBEAST. As well as bringing superstar global headliners to the Kingdom, it is also essential to us that we center our efforts on showcasing unseen talent from across the region,” he added.

Organizers revealed that this year’s festival has almost doubled in size with more food and beverage offerings, open seating spaces to relax and parking on site for all general admission ticket holders.

Last year’s event welcomed more than 730,000 attendees.
