Desert Sounds Festival welcomes Dish Dash, Jeme and Pawsa



The music festival is taking place indoors in Riyadh.

Saudi Arabia is turning up the volume. Desert Sounds is back and will be headlined by established and emerging artists. If you want to beat the heat, it will switch its outdoor venue to an indoor one in Riyadh. Taking place on 2 June, here's how you can join the fun.

For its next edition, Desert Sounds will welcome homegrown talent from the region. The acts include Basha, Dish Dash, Jeme, Mishal, and Pawsa. Dish Dash hail from Saudi Arabia, and are made of the brothers Hassan and Abbas Ghazzawi. The pair are known for their techno beats and have performed around the world including Abu Dhabi, Bahrain and London. 

Pawsa is a London-based DJ and producer known for his stripped-down style. His signature sound revolves around inventive tech-house infused with an old-school vibe, tailored perfectly for the dance floor. As a DJ, he has performed throughout Europe and is known for his 'PAWSA's Mixtape Series.' 

Jeme is a DJ and producer from Riyadh and studied in Los Angeles. His music combines intricate percussion patterns with hypnotic synth. Mishal was born and raised in Saudi Arabia and has been inspired by his upbringing to create music that reflects his multicultural background. Plus, Basha is a Saudi DJ who loves to create fun-filled, high-energy sets.
