In December, Balad Beast will illuminate the city for two nights
Be prepared—the beast has returned and is greater than ever. On Saturday, December 9, Friday, and December 10, Balad Beast, a music and arts festival, will raise the roof.
The two-day festival will occur inside the walls of Jeddah’s Old Town, or Al-Balad. It will illuminate the neighborhood’s distinctive background from noon until night.
Hip-hop, EDM, house, techno, and other genres will all get represented at the festival. Along with original entertainment, stunning light displays, and the newest Saudi streetwear taking over the souqs.
With the help of innovative technology and lighting, art will be projected onto the al-famous Balad’s buildings, bringing the centuries-old structures to life once more.
The CEO of MDLBeast, Ramadan Alharatani, stated his enthusiasm for the inaugural Balad Beast festival:
“Being able to present Balad Beast will be a privilege and an honor. We are aware of the significance and history of Jeddah’s Old Town, and we take our duty to ensure that Balad Beast sheds new light on it and seriously draws attention to its beauty.”
