The new digital and social media to discover Arabia and the Middle East. Offbeat. Innovative.

Dj Khaled and several hip-hop legends reunited in Riyadh by MDLBEAST

DJ Khaled (2016) DJ Khaled Tour Story for Summer Must List Issue

The new edition of the Soundstorm MDL Beast music festival will take place from 1 to 3 December in Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia. The festival will feature some of the biggest names in music - and especially this year - hip-hop in the world, for a series of concerts and conferences that promises to attract the attention of the music industry worldwide: XP Music Futures 2022.

Dj Khaled, Busta Rhymes, Future, T.I., Rick Ross… The headliners of this new edition of MDLBEAST’s Soundstorm festival would make any music festival envious. The hip-hop stars, who will perform in a show entitled “Dj Khaled & friends”, are making their first appearance in the Kingdom, which is sure to cause a sensation.

And they won’t be the only ones to make the Saudi youth dance, as the line-up also includes other superstars such as Bruno Mars, Post Malone, DJ Snake, Carl Cox, and Marshmello.

As a reminder, the last edition attracted some… 730,000 spectators.


Concerts, but not only…

Alongside the concert, the XP Music Futures conference is happening since yesterday. On the program, 3 days of exchanges organized by MDLBEAST, and more than a hundred speakers, including French DJ David Guetta, American producer Matthew Knowles, incidentally father of the famous Beyoncé, or the co-founder of the group NWA Kim Nazel, also known as Arabian Prince.

Between working groups, round tables, and thematic workshops, all these seasoned professionals will try to distill advice and knowledge to the representatives of the still nascent Saudi industry. Because talent is not enough, music is also, and above all business, and Saudi Arabia seems to have understood this quite well.
