Hello people of Cairo, it’s another weekend ahead of…no, wait! It’s not just another weekend; it’s going to be a long weekend, which triples the fun. Many of you will be heading to the beach, but for those who will be spending the next three days in town; perk up, because Cairo knows how to keep you busy.

Here’s what you can do, while others are slouching on the beach:

Thursday buzzes with music, with Egyptian diva, Shereen Abdo, taking to the stage of Garden City’s ROOM Art Space for a number of Arabic songs that melds rock, blues and funk and Mariz Momtaz, Fairouz and Nouran Aboutaleb, along with many other musicians, take to stage at Heliopolis’ Bab 18 for In-Fusion Night, while Egyptian Project take takes over El Genaina Theatre’s stage, right after the students of Al Darb Al Ahmar Arts School flaunt their musical, acrobatic and acting talents.
