We refuse to let those who stay in Sahel all summer feel superior, so we are introducing the ultimate weekend guide where we will include events happening in Sahel and in the capital in our weekly lists. Everyone gets to have fun this summer as big events and concerts are happening and we are here to help you decide where to go.


Shahyn at Palapa (Sahel)

The grand opening of Palapa Beach is happening this weekend and Shahyn is here to fire it up. Try finishing your overpriced Sahel dinner early as doors to this event open exactly at 9 pm.

Wust El Balad at Cairo Jazz Club (Cairo)

Wust El Balad is back to their favorite stage at CJC, and we sure have missed their live performances. If you are in Cairo this Thursday don’t forget to hit CJC for another unforgettable performance from Hany Adel and the gang.

Amira, Mofu & Algopack at Cairo Jazz Club 610 (Cairo)

Not all fun summer parties are by the beach this season as CJC 610 has taken it upon themselves to make summer in Cairo just as exciting. This Electric Thursday Amira, Mofu and Algopack will be behind the decks and the party will last till late. 

For reservations, send CJC 610 a FB message between 12-8 PM. 

Love Night at AHM Club (Sahel)

What you will love about this event, other than the banging music, is the dress code. You are asked to dress as extra and as out there as you can, and we can’t wait to see all the outfits that will be worn that night. Marc Wahba and Mostafa Masry will be playing b2b and Wassim Bou will be on warm up duty.

El Esseily at Fouka Bay (Sahel)

Are you really in a relationship if you don’t have a video of yourself and your partner pointing at each other as Esseily’s song “Fe Hetta Tanya” is being played in the background? If you don’t, then here’s a chance to get corny while Esseily sings live and you film all videos that prove to your followers that you are definitely in love.

Brush it at Sahel 

Do you think you have met the love of your life this summer or is it just another summer fling? This isn’t just an event for couples, but we highly recommend this activity for people who are trying to bond, yet chill at the same time by the beach. Put your art skills to the test and go paint and sip the night away.

El Gamila w El Wahsh at Le Marquee CFC (Cairo)

If you or your daughter, like many others, thinks that Belle is the superior Disney princess, then this is the event your family needs to head to this weekend. This weekend, Le Marquee is hosting an Egyptian adaptation of Beauty and the Beast that we never knew we needed. Let’s just say that everything Disney related is twice as funny when dubbed in Egyptian Arabic, and a full on musical will certainly keep us entertained.
