Running between 30 July and 4 September, the 2015 Bibliotheca Alexandrina Summer Festival offers a rich programme for all music tastes alongside film screenings, theatre plays, and a family day.

Singers Angham, Ali Haggar, and Mohamed Mohsen along with bands Black Theama, Cairokee, High Dam, Faty Salama, Nour Ashour, as well as Palestinian Kamilya Jubran and Jordanian rock band JadaL already performed at this year’s festival.

The festival has reached its mid-mark, but we still have over two weeks left, during which the BA Arts Centre will offer many concerts, film screenings, and theatre plays.
