Reggaeton singer J Balvin is set to light up the stage in Saudi Arabia next month, headlining a concert as part of Jeddah Season 2022. The Colombian hitmaker will perform at the Prince Abdullah Al Faisal Stadium on Friday June 3.

Tickets are set to go on sale soon, with prices still yet to be announced.

Credited as one of a number of stars propelling Latin music to the forefront of the worldwide music scene, J Balvin has collaborated with stars including Cardi B, Pharell Williams and Sean Paul. To date, he’s amassed more than 20 billion views on YouTube.

J Balvin was set to perform in the Middle East previously at UFC 242 in Abu Dhabi in September 2019, however he was forced to pull out due to illness.

Jeddah Season returned at the start of May for the first time since 2019, bringing with it a roster of 2,800 events that will take place across the months of May and June. Alongside the 140 restaurants and cafés, 70 immersive experiences, 60 entertainment rides, nine entertainment zones, one international circus, four international exhibitions, five beach activities and two international plays, organisers promised four international concerts. So, while J Balvin may be the first, it’s likely that more superstars are set to be announced soon. Stay tuned!
