Over the weekend, Saudi Arabia witnessed a series of events take ground, pushing the entertainment sector in the kingdom a step forward. 

This came as part of the Formula E Championship race -  dubbed Saudia Ad Diriyah E-Prix - which saw electric vehicles compete in a tournament. The race did more than just promote electric cars and cutting-edge technologies.

Over three days, massive concerts saw thousands of men and women get together and embrace the dance-floor. In case you missed it, here are five things that happened (and one that was rumored to happen) during the pop concerts:

1. It was a massive gender-inclusive event

The three-day music event saw men and women hit the dance-floor together in several mixed-gendered concerts that took place as part of Saudia Ad Diriyah E-Prix, a motor sports tournament using electric vehicles. 

Single-day tickets were being sold for 330 Saudi riyals ($88) and Formula E-ticket holders got complimentary access to the music events. 

Saudi Arabia's entertainment sector has come a long way in recent years.  In 2017, Yemeni-Emirati singer Balqees Fathi took the stage in Saudi Arabia in the first-ever female only concert in the kingdom. 

Earlier this year, the kingdom hosted a mixed gendered, performed by Egyptian singer Nihad Fathy, making her the first female singer to perform to men and women. 

But, it hasn't all been positive news. 

In 2017, authorities in Saudi Arabia's Jazan Governorate ordered the immediate closure of a resort after hosting a licensed concert attended by both men and women.

2. David Guetta saluted Saudi's King Salman ... with an exclusive mix

French DJ, record producer, and songwriter David Guetta turned heads during the closing of the music event with an exclusive remix of a song dedicated to King Salman. 

3. A number of international singers took part

The three-day festival saw six artists take part including Jason Derulo, Enrique Iglesias, Amr Diab, Black Eyed Peas, David Guetta, and OneRepublic.

There were two artists scheduled to perform each day between Dec. 13 and Dec. 15.

4. A Saudi girl did not "jump on" Enrique Iglesias during the concert

Following the event, a tweet began going around claiming a Saudi girl jumped on Iglesias mid-concert. 

However, the video was actually taken in 2016 during the Spanish singer's concert in Baku, Azerbaijan as he performed at the city's Formula One grand prix.

5. 1,000 tourists from 80 countries received the new "sharek" visa ... for the event

Over the weekend, tourists from around the world made it out to Saudi Arabia under a new visa system. 

In September, Saudi Arabia announced it will begin offering electronic visas for foreign visitors who wish to attend sporting events and concerts starting December. The announcement came just ahead of the sports tournament. 

According to Al Arabiya, about 1,000 foreigners from 80 countries received the new "sharek" visa. 

"Hopefully we will learn from this and see what we need to do for the future, but I can tell you from now that there is a lot of demand," said Prince Abdulaziz bin Turki al-Faisal, vice chairman of the General Sports Authority.

Prior to the implementation of the new system, there was no category that allowed expats to enter the kingdom for "entertainment" purposes. The majority of expats enter the country on a work, business, or residency visa. Muslim expats are given special visas to perform the annual pilgrimage, otherwise known as Hajj, and Umrah, the non-mandatory Islamic pilgrimage.
