First release tickets are dropping on 2 September. However, if you miss out on this first early rush on tickets, fret not, as there will be two further releases.


SoundStorm festivalgoers can choose to purchase the day tickets or the four-day passes. The four-day passes feature four different tiers – Storm Chaser, Storm Blazer, VIB and VIB-Box – which offer varied access to the event.

The most basic festival access with a party bus shuttle service from selected locations in Riyadh is priced at Sar135 per day.

The day ticket for the exclusive VIP experience (the VIB tier) is available for Sar2,999.


What’s more, you’re entitled to a discount if you were to purchase the four-day passes during the first and second releases.

A big immersive experience


Last year’s event saw over 400,000 attendees, 80 artists, and six stages in what became the biggest music festival to have taken place in the region. Headliners included world-renowned artists such as David Guetta, Tiesto, Martin Garrix, Steve Aoki, Afrojack, J Balvin, and Rick Ross, and local and regional DJs like CosmiCat, Dish Dash, and Don Edwardo.


Talal Albahiti, COO and Head of Talent Booking and Events, said, “Our inaugural festival in 2019 was pivotal for the music and entertainment scene in Saudi Arabia, as it put us on the world map and revealed just how rich music culture is in the Kingdom and the region. Saudi Arabia is transforming, and with it, the popularity and appetite for music and festival culture is growing exponentially. MDLBeast is supercharging the creative industry, and we’re excited to continue showcasing it to the world.”
