Sandbox Festival

Over the years, we built a culture that welcomes like-minded strangers from around the world that gather to witness genre bending lineups of international and local selectors on our different stages. While sharing the same backdrop of El Gouna’s beach shore, each stage is carefully programmed to express its own character.

More at Sandbox

Aside from the music, Sandbox provides a holistic getaway experience with a wide range of food options to choose from, scheduled group yoga and wellness classes, and the chance to take a dip in the Red Sea waters that are just a few meters from our dancefloors.

El Gouna

Our Home

El Gouna is gracefully positioned between the sandy shores of the Red Sea and the mountainous desert terrains of Hurghada, offering a seemingly endless list of things to do and places to see. Explore the Red Sea waters by boat with friends and a few drinks as you hop around the nearby islands. Or, do some kitesurfing, wakeboarding, underwater diving, snorkeling, fishing or sailing. Venture through Hurghada’s landscapes on desert excursions with quad buggies and jeeps. Go rock climbing, hiking and have dinner with the bedouin hosts that will guide you through it all.

With over 17 hotels and hundreds of residences for rent in the area, El Gouna offers plenty of options for your stay. In collaboration with our accommodation partner, we put together exclusive discounted rates for Sandbox Festival attendees.
