Fresh off the heels of the Anthony Joshua vs Andy Ruiz Jr. boxing fight in Riyadh, the Saudi capital is now set to host one of the most significant musical events the region has ever seen. Tapping into the city’s popular EDM scene, The MDL BEAST festival will provide fans with three days of music, art and culture.

Opening itself up to diverse cultural influences from all over the world, the stellar line-up includes eight global headliners, 28 international music acts such as Peggy Gou, David Guetta, Martin Garrix, Swiss Beatz, Steve Aoki, Tiësto, and Rick Ross. Additionally, there will also be 24 local and Saudi Arabian performers which includes DJ Duo Dish Dash and EDM DJ Cosmicat.

The festival will also feature several iterations of the arts, from performances to visual arts, focusing on culinary craft and the cultural heritage that make up Saudi’s identity.

MDL BEAST is taking place from December 19-21. Stay tuned to HYPEBEAST for our coverage of the festival and cop your ticket at the MDL BEAST website.
