10 MUST-SEES AT HAJJ 2015
OMGOMGOMG they just released the lineup for this year's Hajj!!! 🌙🎶🇸🇦😍
- 1.Fleet FoxesThey were forced to pull out of last year's Hajj at the last minute due to visa issues, but they'll have that all sorted out by the time they kick off the whole shebang at the Mina tent on the 8th Dhu al-Hijjah
- 2.Florence and the MachineTip: get to Muzdalifa early for close seats. You'll want to see the stunning Florence Welch with your own eyes, not on some jumbotron!
- 3.ChromeoIf this is anything like their performance at Outside Lands last year, the atmosphere on the Plain of Arafat is going to be ELECTRIC
- 4.MatisyahuBack by popular demand! This will be Matisyahu's 7th consecutive year rocking the boat at Hajj
- 5.Foster the PeopleOkay fine, I just know that one famous song they made about killing kids. But where better to get acquainted with the rest of the Foster The People discography than Ramy al-Jamarat on day three?
- 6.Pussy RiotMOTHERFUCKING PUSSY RIOT!!! If Islam had a sixth pillar, it would be to attend this performance no matter what!
- 7.Die AntwoordThey're playing the main Ka'aba, which in my experience fills up very quickly. But if you're able to make it in, the acoustics make for one hell of a show!
- 8.Rilo KileyREUNION!!! Missed them at Sasquatch a few years back, I won't be making that mistake again!
- 9.Tyler the CreatorPretty shocked they invited him back after he lit that Saudi flag on fire during his Ka'aba performance in 2013
- 10.Muezzin Abdul Bilal ZadehHe's still best known for his earth-shattering cover of Maroon 5's "Can't Stop (Thinking About You)" on Season 4 of The Voice, but his original stuff is every bit as soul-stirring
- 11.BONUS HAJJ MUST-SEE: Young Talent Showcase presented by SKYY VodkaAllahu Akbar? More like Allahu Openbar!
