[THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED] The long Eid holiday is almost here and with it comes the usual avalanche of parties across Egypt's beachside hotspots. One of this Eid's biggest, however, comes via Ismail Kassem and the party-loving peeps of Back 2 Basics, who are set to head north for a special Sahel soiree on September 1st.

Taking place at Hacienda Bay, the all-night, white-and-gold dresscode party is set to kick off at 10PM, with local favourites, Sebzz and Carlos, part of a line-up headed by a very special guest in Italian DJing stallion, Lehar.

While many (wrongly) consider electronic music to be cold and somewhat calculated, Lehar has come to be known for his passionate and often spontaneous sets, as well as his acute reading of a crowd. As a steadfast member of DIYNAMIC Music, releases such as 2016 EP, Magical Realism, and and indie hit, Number One Hero, put him on the map. Being featured by Toronto imprint, My Favorite Robot, and Connaisseur Recordings' 10th anniversary release made 2016 a huge year for the Venice native.

For more information and reservations for Back 2 Gold, call 01009703970 or 010-17121452.
