MDLBEAST is back!
The groundbreaking Saudi music festival – which launched its flagship annual event, Soundstorm, back in 2019 – is hosting an immersive multi-stage digital music extravaganza, which will feature some of the hottest EDM artists from around the world.
Dubbed MDLBEAST Freqways, the 12-hour livestream event will kick off on June 20 from 19:00 – 7:00 (GMT+3), and will conclude on World Music Day.
Steve Aoki, Maceo Plex, Afrojack, Claptone, Danny Tenaglia, Deep Dish, Sasha, Butch, Art Department, Laidback Luke, Delano Smith, Gui Boratto, Phil Weeks, Benny Benassi, Dirty South will all be headlining the event, including regional talents K.Led & Majid, Vinyl Mode, and SPCEBOI. Baloo, Cosmicat, and Jade X Tala will also be performing.
The inaugural MDLBEAST Freqways invites digital festivalgoers to board virtual ‘flights’ to various destinations around the world, to discover pre-recorded sets shot in some of the most iconic locations of underground music cities of the world – including Riyadh, Ibiza and Las Vegas.
"The music industry in the region is raw and the merging of neo-culture and technology creates a new buzz, inspiring young musicians to create fresh, unexpected music,” Ahmad Alammary, Chief Creative Officer of MDLBEAST, said.
“MLDBEAST is here to celebrate that. Music and art are universal. A language that can bring people together, inspiring new thriving, creative communities."
MDLBEAST established itself as a global creative platform when it launched back in Dec 2019 in Riyadh. 400,000 people came together from all over the world attended the event.
The festival quickly established itself as a global creative platform that was committed to celebrating music, art and culture in the Middle East; uniting and inspiring the next generation; and awakening the EDM community within Saudi Arabia.
