Though the I Love Nacelle Weekend – and the last House Sessions ever, ever, ever – are the focus of attention for Cairo clubbers this weekend, another huge annual date on the Nacelle calendar is on the horizon – Heineken SANDBOX.
Today, Tito El Khashab and co have finally pulled the curtains on the much anticipated line-up – and it doesn’t look like it will disappoint. Taking place in El Gouna between the 19th and 21st of May, German electro-folk wizard, Monolink, London-based Damian Lazaraus, and giant of electronic music in South Amerika, Dinky, are among the 22 acts set to take to the stage at the three-day festival.
Other foreign imports for the event include Gab Rhome, Madmotor miquel, Dixon, Marcus Worgull, Satori, Frankey & Sandrino, Kicksy and Life on Planets, while plenty of local talent on show, too, in the form of Saleh Amin, Mohamed Sadek, Aly B, Fulltone, the Metoers Project, Baher, Hassan Abou Alam, Safi, Tamer Auf and Hisham Zahran – what a mouthful.
The announcement comes in conjunction with the launch of a fancy new SANDBOX website, which made writing this article much, much easier.
