Independent online newspaper Mada Masr, launched in 2013 by a group of journalists formerly of Egypt Independent, an English-language newspaper, will mark its one-year anniversary this month.

To celebrate, the Mada team has organised a concert on 21 June at the Swiss Club in Giza, with performances by four home-grown music acts: Nadah El-Shazly, Meshwar, Like Jelly and Islam Chipsy.

The concert, coinciding with the summer solstice, the longest day of the year, seeks to "celebrate one year of independent and engaging journalism in times of crisis," Mada Masr's press release says. "We look forward to connecting with our community, while dancing away the longest summer day."

The line-up features an opening performance by one of the rising stars of Cairo's experimental electronic scene, Nadah El-Shazly, followed by Arabic reggae band Meshwar, the very popular band Like Jelly and, finally, a performance by electro folk artist Islam Chipsy.

Doors open at 7pm, performances from 8.30pm – 1am
Swiss Club, Villa Pax, 90 Al-Gihad Street, off Sudan Street, Imbaba, Cairo, El-Salam, Giza
