The World Cup is only a month away. As Qatar prepares for the first Winter World Cup (because it is so hot there during the Summer), they have just announced a huge list of DJs that will be playing there. In total, 40 international artists will travel to the Arabian country. Saudi music entertainment company, MDLBEAST, announced the news.
The DJs will take the stage at ARAVIA, at Qatar’s ‘Al Rihla’ venue during the 28-day world cup season. As MDLBEAST’s first music event outside the Kingdom’s borders, ARAVIA will take place from November 21 until December 18 this year, with tickets available to the public for purchase starting from QAR 199 (like $55).
Fans can expect a range of international artists to perform across the concert series including Calvin Harris, David Guetta, Afrojack, Fatboy Slim, Steve Aoki, Hardwell, Rae Sremmurd, Tinie and Tyga. The stellar lineup doesn’t end there; regional superstars like Amr Diab, Ayed, and Hamaki as well as up-and-coming Saudi talents such as Biirdperson, Cosmicat, Dish Dash, and Vinyl Mode, are set to put on incredible shows.
The newly released line-up serves a major purpose: to shine light on local and regional talents, and to create and promote shareable moments with the community and international stars traveling to Qatar from around the world. Talal Albahiti, Chief Operating Officer and Head of Talent Booking at MDLBEAST, commented
“Our mission goes far beyond the music scene in Saudi Arabia. On the contrary, it is aimed at growing the music industry region-wide and ensuring we create a sustainable music industry, inspiring and empowering the entire ecosystem.”
