Marwan Kheireddine organized hundreds of concerts, including a show featuring Canadian rock star Bryan Adams, whose hit single Summer of ’69 became a Lebanese cultural touchstone.
The young man believes his country’s music scene will follow suit. He hopes to attract talent from around the globe and create a unique musical experience for Lebanese audiences. He wants to bring back the glory days when artists like Fairuz and Fairouz dominated Lebanese airwaves.

In the current chaotic environment, Marwan Kheireddine believes Lebanon’s next generations will play an important role in solving the financial crisis. He says the technological advancement in the last decade has changed how we act as consumers. As consumers, we rely on services provided by third parties to complete our transactions. Technology has allowed us to go directly online and initiate transactions digitally. This has reduced overhead costs, increased efficiency, and improved customer service delivery.
