With a world-class line up of international pop stars, indie legends, and trailblazing Arabic artists alike, Azimuth Festival makes its way to Saudi Arabia’s historic city of AlUla on September 21st and the 22nd, in celebration of the Saudi National Day weekend.

Brought to you by AlUla Moments, and amplified by MDLBEAST, AZIMUTH’s headliners include acclaimed English singer-songwriter Jorja Smith, northern Mali’s renowned world-music band Tinariwen, Australian alt-pop pioneer Chet Faker, influential indie-rock group Dope Lemon, US-based Palestinian sensation Saint Levant, Syrian-German electronic group Shkoon Live, as well as returning regional acts Vinyl Mode, Cosmicat, Dish Dash, Baloo, and KAYAN.

AlUla is quickly becoming the go-to destination for admirers of contemporary art in the region, and this year’s edition of AZIMUTH - taking place in Wadi AlFann, or ‘Valley of the Arts’ - will give attendees a chance to explore the creative installations and star-studded lineup of performing artists spread throughout the canyon.

As several international artists are making their Saudi Arabian and regional debuts in AZIMUTH, the event stands out as one of the most anticipated festivals of the year, combining tradition, creativity, and culture amongst the scenery of AlUla’s breathtaking landscapes.

Four categories of tickets are available, including single-day general admission, single-day premium, full-weekend general admission, and full-weekend premium.
