Saudi music and entertainment company MDLBEAST has today announced plans for an iconic new two-day, multi-genre music and arts festival that will take place in the heart of Jeddah’s Old Town later this year.
Balad Beast will welcome more than 70 international and local artists when it lands inside the ancient walls of the Old Town – known as Al-Balad – December 9-10.
Set against the traditional neighborhood’s historic backdrop – itself a UNESCO World Heritage site – the festival will be the MDLBEAST brand’s first time hosting an event of this scale in Jeddah and will bring with it a one-of-a-kind lighting and image projection system that will reawaken Al-Balad’s centuries’ old surrounds, writing a new and exciting story for the popular ancient spot.
Local and international artists from hip-hop, EDM, house, and techno will perform across five different stages as fans can enjoy performances from the afternoon through the night on both days.
Ramadan Alharatani, MDLBEAST CEO: “It will be a privilege and honor to deliver Balad Beast. We know the history and importance of Jeddah’s Old Town, and we take our responsibility seriously to ensure Balad Beast shines a new spotlight on the historic site and opens new eyes to its beauty.”
“We are working with the relevant authorities and ensuring all safety measures are put in place as we take live music to a place it’s never been before.”
In partnership with the old town program within the Ministry of Culture, MDLBEAST is engaging the wider community from homeowners to businesses and local employees to get involved in bringing to life this incredible festival. In pursuit of safety protocols, the event organizers will also be conducting a sound study to measure the vibrations within existing buildings and ensure their safety.
As well as unrivaled music and light shows, Balad Beast will also come packed with a range of unique entertainment and live experiences, fitting the bill for music fans of all genres.
Tickets are on sale now, starting from 419 SAR, and can be purchased in two tiers: General Admission, and VIP, which includes perks like fast track, exclusive viewing zones, VIP parking, premium food & beverages, and more.
The full festival lineup and structure will be announced soon.
