SOUNDSTORM is brewing with the collective power of over 150 dance music artists. 

Soon Riyadh, Saudi Arabia will be booming with the sounds of Armin van Buuren, deadmau5, The Chainsmokers, Charlotte de WitteCirez-D, Martin Garrix, Steve Aoki, Tiësto, and too many more to name in what has the looks of one the biggest electronic music festival lineups in recent memory.

Best of all, the promise of a full phase two still to be announced is keeping us on the edge of our seats.

In 2019, events promoter MDLBEAST opened the gates of SOUNDSTORM to a massive 130,000-person audience on day one. In total, the debut edition was said to be the largest music festival ever to occur in the region—but that isn't stopping organizers from thinking bigger.
