In Cairo, it is normal to spend most outings in closed spaces—mostly cafés and restaurants. While they can be an escape from Cairo’s sweltering heat, it is important for the mind and the soul to seek different and new experiences. Fortunately, Cairo boasts a vibrant music scene for music lovers and concert-goers.

From the classical tunes of Egypt’s iconic composer Hany Shenouda to the lively tunes of Alexandrian rapper Wegz: there are plenty of concerts to catch this June for every preferred genre.
