6 Eid Festivals We Can't Wait For

Eid is approaching and the fear of every venue being fully booked begins to bubble. With summer still lingering, whether you're stuck in the city or dying to head to the beach, the only thing higher than the party spirit this season is the volume. Check out some of the best festivals happening around the country: 

BlurrFest @ Sahl Hasheeesh

From the people that brought us some of the wildest nights in Sahel and Cairo comes a two-day festival in the Red Sea resort, combining over 12 international DJs, including Booka Shade, Sebastien Leger, Los Suruba and more, with Egypt's best spinning talent.

Cloud 9 @ Nuweiba


The crew behind Cloud 9 show no signs of slowing down in their third edition, this time heading to Dayra camp in Ras Sheitan, bringing together some of the best and most talented bands and artists from across Egypt, all set against the backdrop of Sinai's picture perfect beaches.

Stranded in Cairo @ Cairo Jazz Club

If all your plans to travel fail, rest assured that, as usual, Cairo Jazz Club has your back. Kicking off on the 23rd with DJ Feedo, the following nights see Funk OFF, Ayman Nageeb & Fuzzy and a surprise act on Saturday.  

Maagana Music Festival @ Maagna Camp

For all the beach lovers and acoustic music junkies out there, Maagana's very first music festival is launching this Eid, filling the Sinai camps with tunes from the likes of  Abou Wel Shabab, Ousso and newly formed HoH.

Dahab Eid Fest @ Nessima Restort

Though few details have been released about the line-up, this festival promises a mixture of DJs, live music and water sports at one of Dahab's most popular camps. Organised by an expat group, we expect plenty of shenanigans and super relaxing vibes in equal measure, between the 23rd - 27th September. 

Color Festival With Sadat & Fifty @ Rafeheya

Though it's only one night, this is certainly a festival we're looking forward to. Celebrating Eid this year Egyptian-style, with crazy music and good company might be something you ought to consider, especially if you're in Cairo where all the celebrations are as mainstream as ever. All we know is when Shaabi superstars Sadat and Fifty take to the stage, things get wild and  DJ Daraboka will definitely add to the spin of events while colours are thrown around throughout the course of the show.
