MDL Beast was the biggest all-time hit of any concert in Saudi Arabia, drawing over 400,000 attendees on December 22, 2019.

However, many harassment instances were reported by women following the event, resulting in up to 98 arrests for indecent dressing and harassment.

There is little doubt that the event was a success since it piqued the interest of the general public, particularly young people.

The MDL beast and Riyadh Season have combined to give Riyadh hotels their highest occupancy rate in the last 12 years. However, it also brought to light some of society’s blemishes.

Following the incident, hundreds of women, men, and disabled people broke their silence by posting images of the assault on Twitter with the hashtag “Harassment MDL Beast.


“I despised the audience; the level of sexual harassment at that concert was appalling.” She stated on the video, “It’s really absurd.”
Saudi officials have taken action in this regard, detaining 38 people for harassing women and 60 people for wearing indecent clothing at the Riyadh MDL beast, 37 of them are women.

The arrests were made after the Council of Ministers approved the bylaw for ensuring public decency in its resolution No. 444 dated April 10, 2019, corresponding to Sha’ban 4, 1440. — S.P.A.
