It was once unheard of for a music festival to ever take place in Saudi Arabia, but thanks to the forward thinking Vision 2030 being enforced by Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman, there has been an increase in musical events taking place in the kingdom recently.

December 2018 in Saudi Arabia was an exciting time as some of the world’s most renowned musicians performed at Ad Diriyah’s UNESCO Heritage site to inaugurate Saudi Ad Diriyah E-Prix. The musical acts included Jason Derulo, One Republic, Enrique Iglesias, David Guetta and The Black Eyed Peas. Following Saudi’s first ever E-Prix, Mariah Carey also took to the stage in Jeddah to perform some of her most famous hits at the kingdom’s debut international golf tournament. Saudi also hosted the Winter at Tantora Festival which also featured a host of global musical acts.
