Major acts announced for Wireless Middle East 2024: SZA, 21 Savage, Yeat, Karan Aujla, and more

Wireless Festival returns to the capital on 23 November 2024, with a line-up of incredible artists. The festival will take pace at Etihad Park on Yas Island, with hip-hop, urban, rap, R&B, grime, dance, and many other genres of music on stage.

Here’s a list of the artists unveiled so far:



SZA, a standout in contemporary R&B, is known for her poetic songwriting and emotive voice. She established herself with three EPs and collaborations with Kendrick Lamar, Nicki Minaj, and Rihanna. Her “Ctrl” album earned five Grammy nominations, followed by more for her work on the hit “All the Stars.” Her “SOS” album topped the Billboard 200, produced four Top Ten singles, including “Kill Bill,” and won three Grammys. This summer, she will debut as a Pyramid headliner at Glastonbury.


21 Savage

Born in London, 21 Savage burst onto the scene with his 2015 mixtape “The Slaughter Tape,” blending Atlanta's trap and Chicago's drill. His latest album, “American Dream,” debuted at number one in 2024, and he'll soon make his regional debut at the highly anticipated Wireless Middle East festival.


Since his 2015 debut, Yeat has captivated audiences with his low-fi melodies, clever lyrics, and mysterious persona. Earlier this year, his album "2093" debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200, amassing over 150M streams in its first week. Set to make his regional debut, Yeat will soon take the stage at the iconic Wireless Middle East festival.


Karan Aujla

Jaskaran Singh Aujla, known as Karan Aujla, is a Canadian-based Indian singer, rapper, and songwriter renowned for his mastery of Punjabi music. Relocating to Canada in 2014, he quickly became a sought-after songwriter for top Indian artists. His 2021 debut album "Bacthafucup" garnered over a hundred million streams and secured a Top 10 spot on Spotify’s Global Chart.

Karan’s latest album "Making Memories" has solidified his status as one of India's fastest-growing artists, and his recent collaboration with DIVINE achieved multiple Billboard chart positions. In 2024, he made history as the first Punjabi artist to win a Juno Award.
