DUBAI: Saudi Arabia’s MDLBeast announced on Thursday the upcoming residency of French-born superstar DJ David Guetta in Riyadh.

The series of exclusive and public events will take place next week to mark the launch of MDLBeast Presents, which is the company’s subsidiary that aims to amplify the regional music scene through concerts, events and experiences.

Guetta will kick off his residency with exclusive events to be held in various locations across Riyadh on Nov. 12, 19, and 26.

He will conclude his stay in the Kingdom with performances in December at the inaugural Formula 1 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix and Soundstorm, a record-setting event that launched as MDLBEAST Festival in December 2019.

The COO and head of talent booking and events at MDLBEAST Talal Albahiti said in a statement: “Building the music scene in the Kingdom is central to our plans at MDLBEAST and we aim to bring over the world’s best music icons to deliver genuine world class entertainment. With the launch of MDLBEAST PRESENTS, we are renewing our commitment to produce incredible events and truly memorable experiences for music fans in Saudi Arabia and the region.”

David Guetta is just as popular in Saudi Arabia as he is anywhere else in the world, as he’s such a global sensation. His events in Riyadh will be much anticipated by electronic dance music enthusiasts and all music lovers,” he added.

This is not the first time Guetta performs in Saudi Arabia. In 2018, the DJ hosted a concert at the end of the Formula E race day.

He also performed at the first MDL Beast music festival in 2019.
