SceneNoise presents Saudi Noise-Makers, our new series in collaboration with XP Music Futures where we talk to the artists, music professionals, CEOs and community leaders who have been at the forefront of the transformation of Saudi Arabia’s music industry, to better understand the realities and hear the stories of those who have found success pursuing music in the kingdom.

In this episode, we speak with pioneering Saudi DJ/producer Cosmicat, who explains that the local music scene had always existed in small communities within the kingdom, which have begun expanding ever since the announcement of ‘Vision 2030’. She also tells us about the impact that the music scene has had on tourism, and how hosting world-class music festivals and events in Saudi Arabia will also benefit other sectors of the economy.
