Global stars including 50 Cent, Janet Jackson and Steve Aoki performing on the largest festival stage ever built in the Middle East, cheered on by a raucous 40,000-capacity crowd… It was the kind of scene that’s commonplace at major festivals the world over, but what made 18 July 2019 special was that the concert wasn’t taking place in the US, UK oreven the UAE.
