Everything we know about AZIMUTH’s return to AlUla

The festival’s line-up will feature regional stars like Dish Dash, Baloo, Kayan and more.

Saudi National Day – celebrated annually on 23 September – will be here before you know it, bringing with it a long weekend packed with festivities in Saudi Arabia. Case in point: the highly anticipated AZIMUTH amplified by MDLBEAST music festival.

Taking place on 21 and 22 September 2023, it will transform the historical AlUla into an exceptional gathering of art and sound alongside an electrifying line-up showcasing the best regional stars such as Dish Dash, Baloo, KAYAN and many more.


BluePaper, one of the region’s most talented electronic music producers, is set to make his debut in AlUla, alongside well-known returning DJ Vinyl Mode and female singer-songwriter Cosmicat. Festivalgoers can also expect acclaimed local and regional artists including Zone+, Anmarz, DJB10, and renowned DJ Sokkary to take to the AZIMUTH amplified by MDLBEAST stage.

Incidentally, AZIMUTH is one of the many flagship events under the AlUla Moments brand, which also hosts the likes of Winter at Tantora, AlUla Wellness Festival, AlUla Arts Festival, AlUla Skies, and more. From international headliners (watch this space) to rising local and regional superstars, we’re told that the two-day event will feature a captivating mix of music genres such as pulsating techno, house, youthful melodies, and calming tunes to the backdrop of exciting visual and lighting design.


“AZIMUTH amplified by MDLBEAST is more than a music event; it’s a platform dedicated to nurturing and empowering a vibrant, creative scene in Saudi and for the region,” says Phillip Jones, Chief Tourism Officer of The Royal Commission for AlUla. “We set the benchmark high with last year’s event, the intimacy of the venue surrounded by the monumental landscapes of AlUla and a sunrise crescendo that festivalgoers are still talking about. Both those working on the event and those in attendance claimed it to be the most unique music and art experience on the festival circuit. We are thrilled today to announce the best regional and local names in the music business that will be performing at AZIMUTH amplified by MDLBEAST 2023, and we will soon announce some exciting international artists.”
