As some of the main artists on the lineup of MDLBEAST Soundstorm 2022, the likes of Swedish House Mafia, Bruno Mars, Tiësto, Carl Cox and countless more added up to a total of 200 artists across the 7 different stages on offer to explore across just 3 days. Packing in a countless amount of entertainment with not just its music but visual experiences, Soundstorm focused on curating an audiovisual sensation that ensured this third edition stood out from the crowds in every way possible.

Speaking of the stages, this year continued the record breaking designs that Soundstorm have become known for, with the mainstage – BIG BEAST – earning the title of the largest temporary stage structure standing tall at 135.5 feet. With all of these artists’ performances, it totalled up to 260 unforgettable hours of music, huge numbers in just 3 days.

Ramadan Alharatani, CEO at MDLBEAST, said:

“This year’s third edition of SOUNDSTORM has emulated the success of its predecessors, exceeding our own expectations as well as our guests, delivering a world-class festival experience, and ushering in a brand-new chapter for the regional music scene. Whilst setting new benchmarks for future music events staged in Saudi Arabia and the wider region, we’re equally proud of the legacy these last three days leave behind.”

Of his personal experience, David Guetta said:

When it comes to Saudi Arabia, I’ve been directly involved since day one with what is being done here, because I played the first SOUNDSTORM festival in 2019. What I see as I’ve started to play in Saudi is people with happy faces.”

Being 61% bigger than last year’s edition, its safe to say that MDLBEAST Soundstorm 2022 was a resounding success. With all of this in mind, MDLBEAST Soundstorm looks towards 2023 to put on another history making edition, and will take place on December 7-9.
