Jeddah World Fest announces big artists

Rapper Nicki Minaj is one of the top names at the festival

2019 marks the birthyear of the Jeddah World Fest. This music festival, organized as part of the Jeddah Season, will take place on July 18 and its line-up has just been -partially- unveiled.

It’s a first big announcement for the Jeddah World Fest, which will host, among other names -a second announcement is expected very soon-, several world-renowned artists. Among them, Nicki Minaj, Steve Aoki, Liam Payne, or the figures of MTV R3wire & Varski, should make the dancefloor of the King Abdullah Sports City in Jeddah tremble. 



“Special for the city and the young people” 


This is the first time that a musical event of this size has been held in the coastal city, and even in the kingdom, as Robert Quirke, president of ROQU Media International, promoter of the festival, reminded us: “This international project is truly special for Jeddah City and for all the young people of Saudi Arabia. This is the first global music festival of this scale in KSA and is sure to absolutely wow the lucky audience in Jeddah like never before on July 18. 


The festival will also be broadcasted in more than 100 countries, as said by Raed Abuzinadah, general manager of the Jeddah Season. 


Tickets are already on sale on the festival site, where a competition is also open to those who would like to try to win an all-inclusive package (flight, hotel, VIP tickets) to get there.
