Socially aware Beirut rock: Mashrou’ Leila are coming to the Main Stage

15. June 2017. — Author: EXIT

Exit Festival audience will have the chance for a reunion with Mashrou’ Leila, a five-piece from Beirut, bridging the cunningness of a music workshop and sharp stadium rock. With a clear approach to storytelling and orchestration they have created some of the most melancholic ballads and loud anthems in contemporary alternative Arab music. From the lively and dance-inducing to bitter and melancholy, the band presents themselves as versatile when it comes to the form, the narrative and social questions.

They have published four studio albums and are very public about their attitudes supporting the equality of genders, races, religions and sexual orientation.
