Spending the Eid vacation in Cairo has its own charm; the empty streets open up a world of possibilities that are usually challenging due to Cairo’s traffic.

Whether you’d like to dance the night away, learn a new skill, or explore new genres of music, these five events have something for everyone!

Singer, songwriter, and composer Shady Ahmed will serenade the Cairo-bound with some acoustic tunes on Friday 23 July at The Tap East. This event is ideal if you’d like tunes you can sing along to without going into full party animal mode – plus, we never say no to an opportunity to eat The Tap’s famous wings!

To book your spot, message The Tap East on Facebook.

If you’re interested in learning a new skill, look no further than arts and culture gem Darb 1718, which is hosting a pottery workshop for complete beginners led by Director of the Foustat Traditional Crafts Center Abdelhakim Sayed. Participants will be able to take their piece home one week after the workshop, which will take place on Saturday 24 July.

Aptly titled The Dark Side of the Room, this event is great news for Egypt’s die-hard Pink Floyd fans who can enjoy a night of the band’s most popular hits on Friday 23 July with the help of tribute band Paranoid Eyes. Finally, a good excuse to wear your Pink Floyd T-shirt!

Tickets cost EGP 150 and can be purchased through Easy Kash.
