Over the last decade, ByGanz became a household name in Egypt, standing for everything glitzy, glamorous, and perpetually youthful, and they've collaborated with Lebanese events connoisseurs, Astral Element, to create their first electronic music festival, 'SARAAB'. The events powerhouses promise an impressive lineup of internationally-acclaimed and locally beloved DJs. Headlining the two-day musical spectacle in the heart of the rust-red mountains at Il Monte Galala are renowned Cuban DJ Maceo Plex and French duo Polo & Pan.

Maceo Plex is a Cuban-American DJ most well-known for his eclectic production style, fusing house and techno with sprinkles of electro and splashes of tech house to keep a crowd entertained. With four albums and an array of singles to his name, Plex has certainly carved a space for himself in the global electronic music scene.

Polo & Pan on the other hand hail from Paris, where they were individually known for playing in the city-famous bar ‘Le Baron’, eventually coming together and forming their duo in 2012. Over the past ten years, the duo has released four successful EPs and two studio albums, incorporating a mix of house-electro music and tropical sounds from all over the globe. The duo reached global infamy upon releasing their 2021 single, ‘Ani Kuni’, topping charts worldwide.

However, they’re not the only international artists at ‘SARAAB’, German duo, me, will also be taking a turn up on the deck, as well as London-based DJ Bas Ibellini, French DJs D’Julz, Lamache, and Salomé Le Chat and Scottish DJ Eclair Fifi, Romanian Gerd Janson, Irish Mano Le Tough, Brazilian Terr, Deutsch William Djoko. Joining this impressive lineup is Palestinian artist Maher Daniel, and a slew of popular local producers, DJs, and artists including, Ahmed Samy, Aroussi, Maie, Misty, Chiati, Mazen Hamdy, Messery, and Awadly.
