“With the attendance of more than 732,000 and the participation of 200 international artists... the largest music event in the Middle East concludes its activities in Riyadh,” event organizers said on Sunday.

This year’s festival is the second edition of MDLBeast’s Soundstorm, a dance and musical event taking place near Saudi Arabia’s capital Riyadh.

Soundstorm featured performances by David Guetta, Tiesto, Armin Van Buuren, and other prominent artists.

Alongside electronic dance music producers, the festival saw a number of Arabic musicians perform including Nancy Ajram, Amr Diab, Rashid al-Majid, and Balqees.

The festival took place in a sprawling site consisting of eight different stages with a spectacular arrangement of pyrotechnics and lighting shows. One of the stages, dubbed the ‘Big Beast,’ is billed as the tallest in the world.

Last year’s Soundstorm saw more than 130,000 people attend just the first day of the festival, according to organizers.
