Sandbox is a yearly festival held on Egyptian beaches since 2013. Sandbox will be 6 years old this year and we are pretty stoked to say the least. This is not your traditional big headliner festival with 70 DJs or more, it is a much more intimate gathering amongst strangers that quickly feel like friends as they all appreciate longer set times and more live acts that complement the organic element of being at the beach.
Our top priority is to promote this full experience through our unparalleled Egyptian climate (kiting, diving, snorkeling, or bumming it out by the sea), our line-up of local and international artists, and of course our guests who make Sandbox what it is. This festival is largely intended for all our international guests as well as those coming from inside Egypt, who would not only want to attend an electronic music festival but also take a vacation to enjoy everything that our beautiful weather and seaside have to offer.
We would love it if all our guests could not only come to our festival but to also come enjoy an Egyptian paradise in El Gouna.
We really hope we all get to play together in one big happy SANDBOX!
Love, music, friends, dance, sun, sea and sand – That is why you should attend!

FESTIVAL & GOUNA:
The festival and the small town where it is located are by the beach so you can wear whatever you want there. In fact, beach wear is highly advisable but do not forget to bring a jacket in case it gets a bit chilly at night.
In this big city, we recommend that women dress modestly, with shoulders and knees covered especially when sightseeing or roaming the streets. Except of course if you’re going clubbing in Cairo, then the modest dress code doesn’t apply.
Yes, a doctor and clinic are available on the festival grounds during all operational hours. El Gouna Hospital is 5 minutes away from the Festival grounds for cases that may need extra care. If you need to take prescribed medication due to health problems, you need to be in possession of a valid medical certificate. We can only allow these specific medications if you can present a valid medical certificate at the entrance.
Sandbox conducts an absolute zero tolerance policy with regard to drugs.
