In a great step towards change, Riyadh is set to hold yet another concert this April. 

Two Saudi singers - Rabeh Saqer and Khalid Abdulrahman - will be taking the stage on April 3rd at the 3,300-seat King Fahad Cultural Center. 

This would be the Saudi city's second-ever concert to be held in 25 years. 

Details regarding the concert tickets and time have yet to be released.

It would be the third concert held in the entire kingdom in 7 years.

In January, Saudi Arabia witnessed full-packed crowds during two concerts held during the month. 

The concerts included a jazz performance in Riyadh - the first in the city in 25 years - and another concert in Jeddah - as 8,000 men gathered to see Saudi singer Mohammed Abdo perform in the city's first concert in seven years. 

These two events came weeks after Saudi Arabia's Grand Mufti said musical concerts and cinemas "open doors to evil," responding to the kingdom's increased efforts to bring more entertainment events to the country.

What does this mean for Saudi Arabia?

Enhancing cultural and entertainment opportunities throughout Saudi Arabia is an integral part of the Riyadh's Vision 2030, an initiative that has been championed by Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

In early January, Amr al-Madani, head of the kingdom's General Authority for Entertainment, said concerts and cinemas would come to the kingdom in 2017. 

In addition to concerts, the kingdom is moving to host more entertainment events. 

Saudi Arabia held its first ever Comic Con in February, as 7,000 queued up at Jeddah's Takeoff Social & Air Sports Center to take part. 

The event saw international celebrities, including stars from the popular series Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad and Hannibal, join the night. 

In March, the kingdom also saw more than 2,500 people attend the kingdom's first ever YouTube FanFest, an event that brought together YouTubers from around the world. 

Will cinemas soon follow?

Cinemas in the kingdom have been banned since the 1980s. However, there have been numerous attempts to break the film industry out of its shell, including two submissions to the Academy Awards.

The first film to represent Saudi Arabia was Haifa Mansour's "Wadjda" in 2014. Mansour's film did not win a nomination at the time.

In 2016, Mahmoud Sabbagh's film "Barakah Meets Barakah" was also submitted to compete under the Best Foreign Language Film category. It also didn't score a nomination. 

Despite restrictions on artistic expression, Saudi nationals are still working to find a voice in film. With Vision 2030, there is hope that the cinema industry will finally become a reality in the kingdom.
