Miami Band

Miami Band, the popular Khaleeji band from Kuwait, returns to the MOTN Festival's Live Arena stage on 9 December after a sold-out concert. The group, founded in 1986, has recorded several albums over the years and will be performing their chart-topping numbers, such as "Juwaira" and "Ma'ak Radhi", for fans of all ages on opening night.

Beloved Iraqi singer Aseel Hameem will bring a headline performance on 10 December, delighting festivalgoers who have heard her melodic voice on multiple Arabic TV show soundtracks. Having started her career at the age of 22, Aseel's famous song "Ser Alhaya" is one of the most streamed songs by a female Arab artist on YouTube, with more than 255 million views. The artist will be selecting top hits from her repertoire, including "Hadarat El Walhan" and "Al Mafrood", to serenade music lovers at the festival.
