In the concert hall, hundreds of guests were welcomed, including Prince Abdul Aziz bin Turki Al-Faisal, Princess Reema bint Bandar and Yanni, who took part at the Winter at Tantora festival last weekend. “This is just so beautiful, the desert and the sky at night, the stars… the natural beauty here is stunning,” Yanni told Arab News. “I have never experienced this type of beauty before in my life.”

 

The charter for Al-Ula was showcased on a sand stage with a multimedia sound and light show, bringing local men and women together, the “guardians” of Al-Ula. The rocks of Al-Ula, visible through glass at the back of the stage, acted as a backdrop.
