3alganoob Music Festival

Top choice music in Marsa Alam

Egypt's only modern music festival, this three-day feast at Tondoba Bay, 14km south of Marsa Alam, features the country's most interesting independent bands in every genre from electronica to alternative rock. Camping areas are set up for festival-goers, and activities such as yoga, film screenings, diving and even a beach clean-up are organised.

From a single band and an audience of 40 in 2004, the festival has now attracted a devoted following; expect a crowd in the hundreds.
