Concerts are just a part of The “Sea and Culture” festival. It will also feature over 150 activities such as plays, art exhibitions, award-winning Michelin-starred restaurants and pop-up eateries, street music performances and parades. The numerous events are scheduled to take place from now up to July 18 across various venues such as King Abdullah Sports City, Jeddah’s historical area, Al-Hamra Corniche and the Jeddah Waterfront.

The initiative hopes to boost tourism and encourage partnerships with local businesses and offer up to 20,000 jobs and volunteering positions to young people. This is another major step in the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 plan that strives to decrease the countries dependency on oil.
