The upcoming edition the Downtown Contemporary Arts Festival (D-CAF) -- Egypt's only international, multidisciplinary arts festival -- will take place between 29 March and 21 April across the many locations in Downtown Cairo and beyond.

The eighth edition of the festival will see 40 different events, including performing arts, concerts, urban vision performances, new media events, film screenings, and workshops, featuring artists from Egypt, Denmark, Hungary, France, the US, the UK, Germany, Iran, Palestine and Syria.

Collaborating with Ismailia Company, the events will take place across many Downtown Cairo venues, including Sherefeen Street which served as one of the D-CAF’s stages in the festival’s first three editions, and the Tamara building, with both locations being recently renovated.

Other venues include Rawabet Theatre, Falaki Theatre, Greek Campus, La Vennoise Rooftop, Cinema Zawya, Maktabi Creative Office spaces, Studio Emad Eddin, 100 Copies Studio, as well as other spots in Downtown Cairo, topped with Ezbet Khairallah Theatre, and the Maqad of Sultan Qaitbey outside the area.
