After the curtain came down on another eventful Sahel Season, Cairo’s bars and clubs have taken back control of the steering wheel of the car that is nightlife in Egypt, with the likes of Cairo Jazz Club and the Tap, as well as one of the biggest music festivals of the year, awaiting you for what is shaping up to be a busy weekend.
VYBE + MINUS T @ THE TAP
While not the biggest name on the music scene in Cairo, Vybe are a band that demand your attention. Things kick off at the Tap with some rock, blues and funk covers, before CG favourite, Minus T, takes to the decks.

FAIROUZ T + SPECIAL K @ CAIRO JAZZ CLUB
Two of the best up-and-coming DJs in Egypt, Fairouz T and Special K, are set to infect Cairo Jazz Club regulars with a heavy dose of Friday Fever. That and some house music.
