Azalea, whose chart-topping hit songs include ‘Fancy’ and ‘Black Widow’, said: “I am delighted to be making my debut performance in Saudi Arabia at Gamers8 and thrilled to be headlining an all-women line up. Providing inspiration for women across the globe is hugely important to me, and something I am immensely proud to have done through my music. Performing live provides incredible opportunities to meet new people and experience new cultures, and I look forward so much to seeing all my fans in Riyadh on Friday for what will be an amazing night.”
Friday’s all-women line up is another initiative from the Saudi Esports Federation, the organizers of Gamers8, to ensure that women are represented and inspired across all facets of the esports ecosystem – including the entertainment, business, and technology sectors.
