Legally-mandated holidays are the best time of year – FACT. When they coincide with heat waves, well, God bless; it’s like a little preview of summer. Cairenes will face no shortage of city-breaks this time around, and we’re spoiled for choice, where everywhere from Sharm, to Gouna, to Sahl Hasheesh, to Soma Bay has got something for your most lewd escapist fantasies.
CHERRY MARATHON @ PACHA SHARM EL SHEIKH
(Thursday-Monday)A four-day marathon awaits dedicated party-goers at Pacha Sharm El Sheikh; featuring some of the best local talent - Omar Sabh, Shady Ezz, Aly Goede, Aguizi & Fahim, and Abou Samra - as well as residents Joe & Ouzo, the event will also host some international DJ-ing superstars: Coyu, Miguel Bastida, & Olivier Giacomotto. We hope you like DJs.
AURORA PRESENTS: SPRING FEVER! @ AURORA, EL GOUNA
Another four-day affair at Aurora in El Gouna will see ‘femme fatales’, Yasmine Aiwas & Bipolar, as well as Beirut’s very own Jade Tala, Abou Samra, Marc Wahba, and more behind the decks.
#3ALGANOOB 2015 @ SOMA BAY
For a more chilled out Easter holiday, #3alganoob 2015 will be holding a spring-break music festival, the likes of which Egypt has never seen before. They’ve got about twenty acts lined up (don’t quote us on this, we counted really quickly) and they’ve got everything from acoustic darlings, to bands, to noisy DJs, and everything in between – all set to the background of the sea. __________
DAZED @ ARENA INN, EL GOUNA
Yes, this is the only one-day party on our list, but if fabulous past parties are anything to go by – it will be a night to (not) remember. Bringing the ‘Sex Me Up’ r&b club-night from Athens, Greece, and with DJ Marvel Moneim behind the decks, party-goers can expect to get down and dirty to some old-school beats.
SPRING FLING @ SAHL HASHEESH
Event Republic are taking over the picturesque shores of Sahl Hasheesh again with Spring Fling! They promise two extravagant all-day parties, filled with all the trappings of a great beach party – tequila water guns, pool noodles, and other toys – so our inner-kids can come out and party just as hard.
THEATER OF DREAMS (EASTER EDITION) @ SPACE, SHARM EL SHEIKH
Bringing together a small army of the best local DJs, the second edition of Theater of Dreams is set to be even bigger than Ras Sudr. Held at ‘one of the best clubs in the Middle East’, Space, you can probably expect a slightly rowdier music festival.
