This same time last year, the festival had already confirmed John Legend and I had leaked Alt-J performing. Many had thought the festival was out of big names for this summer, but it seems we’ve all been wrong.
Sia, the Australian super star behind songs such as Chandelier and Titanium, will be performing on August 9th. No words yet on whether she will show her face, but her voice will more than suffice either way.
This will be Sia’s first performance in the entire Middle East. It will be a recreation of her critically acclaimed showcase at Coachella.
In a surprisingly disappointing line-up, Sia seems to be the main draw when it comes to international talent.
Other acts that will also be in the festival are Mashrou’ Leila, Hishik Bishik and Carole Samaha as Lebanese performers and renowned saxophonist Kenny G as well as Grace Jones.
The full line-up is present at the above picture and ticket prices will be as follows:
– Regular: $75,
– Golden Circle: $125.
Sitting: $70, $90 and $150.
