DUBAI: Saudi Arabia’s MDLBEAST has unveiled the official lineup for its 2021 SOUNDSTORM festival, a record-setting event that launched as MDLBEAST Festival in December 2019.
Being staged in Riyadh from Dec. 16 to 19, SOUNDSTORM will feature musicians from around the world with more than 150 superstar and international dance acts performing alongside local and regional talent.
Top names due to take part include Armin Van Buuren, David Guetta, Deadmau5, DJ Snake, Eric Prydz, Martin Garrix, Paul Kalkbrenner, Tiesto, Steve Aoki, Adam Beyer, Amelie Lens, Carl Cox, Charlotte de Witte, Jeff Mills, Nina Kraviz, and Sven Vath.
Anmarz, Cosmicat, Spaceboi, and Zone+ will be among the regional artists also participating at the festival.
Talal Albahiti, MDLBEAST’s chief operating officer and head of talent booking, said: “We’re happy with the first announcement of the SOUNDSTORM 2021 lineup. We will soon announce a second phase which includes a wide variety of musical genres that will take attendees on a journey they won’t forget.”
Tickets are now available online through mdlbeast.com and in store at Virgin Megastores in Saudi Arabia.
Following the successful launch of MDLBEAST’s inaugural annual event in 2019, that attracted 400,000 people over three days, the festival has quickly established itself as a global creative platform setting the tone for music, art, and culture in the Middle East.
Last year, MDLBEAST hosted its music festival digitally because of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.
