The first week of the The Bibliotheca Alexandrina’s annual International Summer Festival kicks off on 16 July, opening with a concert by Jordanian band Autostrad at the Open Air Theatre.

Autostrad, which was founded in 2007 in Amman, has performed in Egypt many times, including a concert series in Cairo and Alexandria, always to packed audiences.

The band’s music and lyrics are derived directly from their daily experiences in Jordan, while tackling universal themes such as love, freedom and financial constraints, which is why young music fans from all over the Arab region relate to their songs.

Festival goers will be treated to mixture of local and international, music concerts, a play, and a film during the first week.

The international shows include a concert by Swedesh band Triakel, and the screening of a Greek film titled The Aunt from Chicago.

Events are ticketed, except for the Triakel concert at the Open Air Theatre.
