Final acts announced for Beats on the Beach
What’s On has details about the final acts performing at Beats on the Beach, including Far East Movement and Moroccan singer Saad Lamjarred.
The final acts for Beats on the Beach have been announced. Asian American hip-hop/electronic dance group the Far East Movement will perform on Saturday, November 28 while Moroccan singer Saad Lamjarred will perform on Thursday, November 26.
The Far East Movement, made up of members Kev Nish, Prohgress, J-Splif and DJ Virman, is best know for their platinum single “Like a G6.” Featuring pop-rap duo The Cataracs and singer Dev, the song peaked at number one on both the Billboard Hot 100 and the iTunes chart in 2010 and also reached the top ten in Australia, the United Kingdom and Canada. The single also made history because it was the first time an Asian-American group had ever reached the top spot.
On Thursday, Arabic singer and YouTube personality Saad Lamjarred will perform. The Moroccan crooner, who has snagged a MTV Europe Music Award in 2014 for ‘Best Middle East Act,’ will be singing some of his biggest hits such as Enty Baghya Wahad.
