The main stage will also feature Nadine El Roubi, a Sudanese singer, songwriter, and rapper based in Cairo, who is one of the region's leading forces in hip-hop and neo-soul.

This year, there's an exciting addition, the UAE Mixtape, highlighting the rap talents from the region, featuring artists like The Recipe, Tac, Tayeb Santo, A'Y, MaxiZee, and Moh Flow. The showcase will be hosted by Mazzi from Def Jam.
