If you’re an Etisalat Emerald client you will want to know that the telecom giants that have always been known for taking care of their most valuable customers are sponsoring the the first Soma Bay Music Festival. They'll be inviting their Emerald clients to the event free of charge. Not only that, but they’ll have dedicated gates to enter the concerts and an Emerald-only VIP lounge. Now that’s what we call pampering. 

Taking place between the 14th and 16th of April, the festival features an incredible roster of legendary international musicians. Each night will feature warm up acts followed by one mega-headliner for each night respectively.

The Gypsy Kings will be bringing all their Latin classics and Spanish guitar ballads to the crowds on Friday the 14th. Saturday the 15th is even more eventful with Egypt’s first kids concert which will start earlier during the day with plenty of music and games for the youngsters. Headlining on Saturday will be Romanian cover band FreeStay who will deliver their share of hits, both old and new. Supporting FreeStay will also be another local cover band, the widely beloved Strawberry Swing whom you can always count on to play some of Coldplay’s most memorable songs. 

Closing the festival on Sunday the 17th will be legendary British rock band Dire Straits. The rock icons are no strangers to Soma Bay, this will mark their second visit since they brought The Dire Straits Experience to the resort town in 2015, with few performances annually worldwide and the amount of history between the band’s members, the Sultans of Swing are not to miss.The prestigious Red Sea resort village of Soma Bay has always been known for its pristine beaches, lavish hotels, and array of ways you can get pampered. From fine dining, to luxury spas and golf courses, they haven’t left much for improvement in the leisure department, you can now add musical entertainment to that list. Whatever your preferences are you will find something to do at the world class resort.
