Info & FAQs

Sandbox is a beach-side festival that annually graces the sands of El-Gouna, Egypt

For 8 years, Sandbox has been providing a different kind of rave experience. Favoring intimate artists and entertainment over traditional big headliners, thousands gather right by the Red Sea to enjoy longer set times and more live acts from international and local artists playing shoulder to shoulder on the different Sandbox Stages.

When they aren’t dancing, our guests make use of the Red Sea climate by going kitesurfing, diving, snorkeling or just bumming it out on the warm sands.

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.
