  • Dota 2 Riyadh Masters

Returning to Boulevard Riyadh City even bigger and better following last year’s remarkable debut tournament, the Dota2 Riyadh Masters is back – with 20 of the planet’s most formidable teams battling it out for a jaw-dropping $15 million prize pool. The prize pool is the biggest of the 15 tournaments being held this summer at Gamers8: The Land of Heroes, which is organized by the Saudi Esports Federation, with the winners earning a cool $5 million. 

The deepest multi-player action, real-time strategy (RTS) game ever created and one of the world’s biggest esports titles, Dota2 at Gamers8: The Land of Heroes is simply unmissable. With teamwork, skill, a little luck, and the discovery of new tactics, players must work together in teams of five to progress through the 12-day tournament and emerge victorious on July 30. Make sure you catch all the action this week.

  • Week 3 Concerts – Afrojack, WEGZ, Moayad Alnefaie, and Dafencii

“Give me everything tonight/For all we know we might not get tomorrow/Let’s do it tonight!” – the perfect words for your Friday night party at Gamers8 come right from Afrojack. That’s because the Dutch DJ and hitmaker from ‘Give Me Everything’, with Pitbull feat. Ne-Yo, Afrojack & Nayer, and ‘Hey Mama’, with David Guetta feat. Nicki Minaj, Bebe Rexha & Afrojack, stars on a top July 21 lineup. The fantastic Friday lineup at the Mohammed Abdu Arena also features Egyptian rapper WEGZ, Saudi Arabian rapper Moayad Alnefaie, and soulful Sudanese rapper Dafencii.
