The SoundStorm Festival in Riyadh is renowned as one of Saudi Arabia’s largest music festivals, featuring a three-day extravaganza that includes workshops, panel discussions, networking opportunities, and vibrant nightlife activations. It has become a cultural phenomenon in the country.
Wizkid will share the headline with other international stars, including Chris Brown, Pharrell Williams, Swedish House Mafia, H.E.R, and J Balvin. The festival is expected to draw a massive crowd of 700,000 music enthusiasts. Nada Al Halabi, MDLBEAST Strategy Director, emphasized the importance of diversity in the event, both in the lineup and among attendees, with a special focus on creating an inclusive experience for females.
