Soundstorm Music Festival in Jeddah Sparking Debate on Cultural Shift in Saudi Arabia

In the ancient port city of Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, 25,000 young people recently gathered to dance and celebrate at the Soundstorm music festival. While the event was a hit among attendees, it has also sparked criticism and debate over the rapid cultural shift taking place in the kingdom. The shift, being pushed by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, includes the introduction of music, movies, and relaxed dress codes, causing some toquestion whether the changes are happening too quickly. As Saudi Arabia continues to modernize and open up to the world, it will be important to carefully consider and balance the preservation of traditional values with the embracing of new ideas.
