We had already told you how excited we were when Saudi’s upcoming MDLBEAST teased some names to their stellar line-up a few weeks ago. Running from December 16 to 19, The Kingdom’s first-ever music festival has already been recognised as the biggest entertainment experience around the Arab world, and the festival’s organisers have just revealed more details about their much-hyped event.
As of right now, we already know that David Guetta, DJ Snake and DEADMAU5 will be some of the main figures taking part in the second hotly anticipated iteration of the festival. But with over 150 acclaimed performers scheduled to take over the Kingdom’s main stage, MDLBEAST founders know that for a festival to be successful it must also be a launching pad for regional talents. Enter: MDLBEAST XP.
Established to carve a sustainable and reliable path for the Middle East’s music industry to thrive through high-standards of production and craft, the conferences and talks offered through the XP side of the event will aim at planting the seeds for a panel of music professionals to blossom from within the region. Taking place a few days before the main event on Dec 13-15, the series of lectures is sounding just as exciting as the concerts themselves.
In a recent statement, the breaking of the festival’s different tickets and subsequent set of prices will go as such:
Tickets for the ‘Day Xperience’, which includes access to the conference for all three days, will be available for 1,950 SAR ($520). Count 3,450 SAR ($920) for the ‘Full Xperience’ ticket, offering three-day conference access as well as entry to the evening parties and gigs.
A ‘Lite Xperience’ ticket will be available for 150 SAR which will grant you a one day pass between 4pm to midnight. For guests attending the evening events only, the ‘Night Xperience’ ticket costs 750 SAR ($200) for one night, increasing to 1,750 SAR ($450) for all three.
Set to welcome leading international and regional music industry executives, policy makers, artists and creatives to share their precious insight and knowledge through well-tailored workshops, panel discussions and roundtables, MDLBEAST is starting to sound more and more like THE event of the year to make sure not to miss.
