Lil Wayne, Tyga and Future to perform at Diriyah Music Festival

Saudi Arabia's Diriyah Music Festival lines up epic weekend

RIYADH, November 20, 2019

An epic weekend of rap and reggae will get Saudi Arabia rocking as the Diriyah Music Festival lines up more superstar names, and a sensational starting price of only for SR495 ($131.9) to attend both nights on general admission.

On November 30, US rap star Lil Wayne will take to the stage at the Diriyah Circuit, bringing with him a catalogue of megahits including songs such as Scared of the Dark, Love Me and Mona Lisa.

Lil Wayne has sold more than 120 million records worldwide, including more than 15 million albums and 37 million digital tracks in the US, making him one of the best-selling artists of all time.
And on the same night, support act and fellow rapper Tyga (an acronym of Thank You God Always), who has collaborated previously with Lil Wayne, will bring hits such as Can’t Help But Wait, About You and Taste to the Saudi crowds.

Completing the rap lineup will be performer and record producer Future, responsible for multiple gold-selling hits such as Turn On The Lights, Jumpman and Low Life.

UK dance DJ Scott Forshaw will open the evening, as he will the night before on November 29.
And on November 29, Saudi Arabia will welcome back ‘Mr Worldwide’ himself as Pitbull headlines the stage. It will be Pitbull’s second visit to Saudi Arabia this year, and the American rapper, responsible for hits such as Taxi, Timber, On The Floor and Give Me Everything, will be joined on stage in the Unesco World Heritage site on the outskirts of Riyadh by Jamaican reggae legend Shaggy (It Wasn’t Me, Mr Boombastic) and Puerto Rican reggaeton singer Don Omar, whose hits include Bandaleros featured in the movie The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift.

Offering extraordinary value, fans wanting double the fun and a full weekend of incredible music entertainment can secure tickets to both nights, November 29 and 30, with a bundle ticket for only SR495.
The Diriyah Music Festival is an electrifying series of concerts designed to complement the sporting events of the Diriyah Season.
