Like some kind of weekly kaleidoscopic trip, Sahel serves up all manner of nightlife shenanigans - but Freedom Music Festival might just have laid down the marker for the rest.

Heading north for a special 'On the Sand' edition on Friday 11th, the all-day party at Sol Beach boasts a formidable musical line-up of both international and local acts.

Flying in from Germany, award-winning duo, Frankey & Sandrino - whose 2015 hit, Acamar, is still guaranteed dancefloor filler - are set to take to the stage, alongside a man that Egyptian clubbers have come to think of as one of their own, fellow German music-maker, Soul Button.

The cherry on top of this ice cream sundae of a line-up is a trio of Egypt's very best homegrown talents - Hisham Zahran, Baher and Sebzz - who gets his own photo, because there just wasn't enough space in the header image.

The event is the latest collaboration between Theater of Dreams and Freedom Music; the all-day festival concept has become a big part of nightlife in Egypt, but while others like to boast about which one of Cairo's coolest new indie restaurants is setting-up shop for the day, Freedom Music Festival's M.O has very much been focused on bringing together quality line-ups that make sense.
