In December 2022, ByGanz - Egypt's preeminent party organizers - launched the inaugural SARAAB festival in the picturesque mountains of Il Monte Galala, overlooking the Red Sea. The two-day immersive audio-visual extravaganza featured performances from 11 artists across two stages.

As anticipation builds for the second edition scheduled at the end of 2023, ByGanz has decided to treat festival-goers to a scintillating 'pre-game' event this August on Egypt's North Coast, promising an electrifying one-day beachside festival at D-Bay.

The private, guest list-only event will unfold amidst a surreal tapestry of larger-than-life installations spread across three meticulously curated stages, intriguingly named the '8-Bit Stage,' the 'Portal' stage, and drumroll, please... SceneNoise's very own 'Funk Kitchen’ in collaboration with ByGanz.

We’ll be cooking up a spicy blend of House music flavours sourced from across the region, courtesy of burgeoning Saudi star Vinyl Mode, Retrogroove's Lebanese groove master Ralph Nasr, Eddisco’s Hamdi Ryder from Tunisia, and SceneNoise's untamed selector, Lana.

Meanwhile, the main stages will be graced by headlining performances from German techno heavyweights Âme & Dixon as well as London's funk and foot-work infused House DJ, Bas Ibellini. They’ll be joined on the line-up by an ensemble of brilliant regional talent, including Daox, Dish Dash, Rockin Moroccin, Nova Retra, and Misty.
