Al Balad Music Festival aims to create new horizons to present artists & musicians through performances to the Arab audience, & providing the space for a music market to promote their music.
Al Balad Music Festival 2013 was held in the Odeon Theater, started June 25th and lasted till June 30th. Musicians joined from Jordan, Palestine, Egypt, Lebanon, Algeria and Tunisia and it gathered the emerging alternative & independent music experiences in Amman, in a music carnival for one whole week.
In addition provided new opportunities for musical exchange between Arab bands & local bands within particular guidelines, in coherence with one of Amman’s most ancient sites: Odeon Theater.
- Presenting musicians: Al Balad Music Festival aims to present musicians from Jordan & the Arab region to the public audience & those who are interested to support the emerging music scene in the region. We offer the space to promote their music & media material as well.
- The musical & cultural exchange between the artists: Al Balad Music Festival will host a number of Arab professional musicians to present their work in the festival, & to run closed meetings with the emerging musicians, in order to learn from their experiences and musical orientations through conversations.
- Music Market: Radio Arddi, in cooperation with Al Balad Theater, organized Souq Al Musiqa this year, which is a part of Al Balad Music Festival. This year we have 6 nights of good music, 10 concerts, and a very special Souq.
