This weekend is shaping up to be pretty special across Cairo’s bars and clubs as we see the launch of the city’s biggest arts festival, some birthday and anniversary celebrations, as well some of Cairo’s best DJs strutting their stuff.
MINUS T BIRTHDAY BASH @ VENT
Ma boi, Minus T, is celebrating his birthday this Thursday at the only place that truly appreciates how good he really is, VENT. There better be cake.
D-CAF: SKIP&DIE + ISLAM CHIPSY @ SHEREZADE
Dutch act, SKIP&DIE, open the DOwntown Contemporary Arts Festival’s eclectic musical program, before bona fide shaabi superstar and role model for tuk-tuk drivers across Egypt, Islam Chipsy, does his thing, whatever that may be.
BEYOND FT AGUIZI & FAHIM @ AMICI ZAMALEK
You’ve got to hand it to the guys behind Beyond; over the last few weeks, they’ve booked some of the best DJs in the city, and this weekend sees devilish duo, Aguizi & Fahim, take over at Amici Zamalek.
MOHASSEB TURNS TWO @ CAIRO JAZZ CLUB
Alright smart-ass, stop your sniggering. Mohasseb is not turning two years old. But he is celebrating two years of headlining some of the best parties in Cairo. He just turns up and does his thing.
NACELLE: HOUSE SESSIONS @ THE TEMPLE
As impressive as some of Nacelle’s bookings this year have been, there’s nothing quite like the sight (and sound) of Baher behind the decks, although Swiss-based DJ, Adriatqiue, has a cool-sounding name so he must be good.
