In these pages you will hopefully find interesting tips on how to take advantage of Cairo's many cultural opportunities, with particular attention to live events. Cairo Live Events Guide does not pretend to be exhaustive but will try to cover main events open to the public.

This is a private, independent, nonprofit endeavour. This blog was started in August 2008 by Cairowanderer who has been running it solo up to May 2011. Since then Cairene Beat contributes as well to the blog. If you have any comment, tip, or information you think might be relevant for the blog, please write to or

After the extensive field work in Alexandria the „Alexandria Streets Project“ will make its European debut on Sunday November 18 2012 at 11:00 AM at TAK, Prinzenstraße 85F, Berlin, Germany.
The curators Berit Schuck and Julia Tieke (Berlin), Caram Kapp (Spring Lessons, Berlin / international) and Omar Hatem (Radio Tram, Alexandria) will hold a discussion about the Egyptian radio landscape and the situation of online radios. The discussion will be moderated by Dr. Sonja Hegasy, ZMO (Berlin).
The matinee will continue at 1:00 PM with a sonic expedition. Berit Schuck and Julia Tieke will present audio pieces and the sonic map of Alexandria which they have realized on the basis of field recordings and interviews with activists, architects, musicians, taxi drivers and other residents of the city.
The unlucky ones who cannot be in Berlin will see what it's all about on November 29 when all twenty audio pieces of the “Alexandria Streets Project” will be published on the project's webpage
Still in Berlin, on Thursday November 22, Berit Schuck and Julia Tieke will talk about the concept „sonic map“ and the visualization of Alexandria's soundscape by the graphic design team EPS51 within the exhibition „Right-To-Left“ at Kunstquartier Bethanien. The event will be moderated by Marcus Gammel, Deutschlandradio Kultur (Berlin).

The project will then travel to Egypt with the launch of the sonic map of the „Alexandria Streets Project“ at the Goethe-Institut in Alexandria, 10 El Batalsa Street, Azarita on Thursday November 29, 2012. And on Saturday December 8, 2012 the „Alexandria Streets Project“ will be presented in Cairo at the Remix@100COPIES Music Space, 22 Talaat Harb Street, Downtown.
