The stellar line-up features Yomn Al-Kaisi, whose work explores grief, love and identity; Tasneim Zyada, a perfectly calm storm on the spoken word scene; Rayane Chami a poet championing community with a passion for heavy emotions; and Bint Mbareh, an experimental musician and performer who channels rituals from the past to summon new modes of resistance in the present.

Bint7alal, is a rapper who specialises in smooth flows and energy-filled sounds and from the depths of the Arab underground, DJ Nooriya’s set crosses borders with a mix of electro Arab, electronic Middle Eastern sounds, Dabkeh deep-bass and North African groove.

Be there!
