Yay for three-day weekends! Boo to the hot, sticky weather! Yay for Cairo’s bars and clubs! Boo to end-of-month-money-shortage! Enough of that. Here are this weekend’s top events.
DISCOTECTURE @ TAMARAI
(Thursday)This week’s edition of Electrum Records‘ Discotecture is a bit of a special one. The headline act is an Egyptian DJ by the name of Raxon who has done pretty well from himself abroad. Standing in his esteemed shadow is young buck, Mostafa Emad.
MINUS T @ VENT
You’ll know by now that I have a major musical crush on Tarek Aboul Fetouh, aka Minus T – a man whose eclectic taste in music has made him stand out from the hoards of house hitters in Cairo. If you don’t know him, get to know him.
CAIRO FASHION FESTIVAL @ CAIRO FESTIVAL CITY MALL
Every fashionista’s dream – second only to H&M sale day – is back. Set to take place at Cairo Festival City Mall in New Cairo, the second edition of Cairo Fashion Festival is set to be even bigger and better than last year.
DESTINATION CJC @ CAIRO JAZZ CLUB
Two of the most peculiarly named DJs under one roof; Egypt’s DJ Miesh and Ibiza based DJ, Felix Da Funk, go back-to-back at Cairo Jazz Club.
CAIRO BITES @ BARON PALACE
The highlight of the weekend – nay, my life – has finally arrived. As the biggest food festival Egypt has ever seen, Cairo Bites is set to send my cholesterol levels through the roof. Have you ever had a 26 course meal? I’m going for it.
There’s much more to do across Cairo this weekend; checkout the CG events calendar for more.
