Bibliotheca Alexandrina Summer Festival launched on 6 August and continues until 2 September with a large assortment of music events

Organised by the Bibliotheca Alexandrina Art Centre, the 12th edition of the festival brings a large line-up of renowned Egyptian musicians and bands to the Mediterranean city from 6 August to 2 September.

This year's festival witnesses large audiences of all generations flocking to the Bibliotheca to attend a variety of performances.

The festival opened with a concert by renowned Egyptian composer and pianist Omar Khairat. A number of independent bands -- Massar Egbari, Egyptian Project, Dina El-Wedidi, Cairokee, Shawar3ena among others -- have performed so far.

A special day dubbed 'Have Fan' brought four bands to perform in one evening: Sout Fel Zahma, Nour Project, Wasla band, Osama El Hadi.

The Bibliotheca also hosted its own BA Chamber Orchestra which performed tangos and film music.

Within the festival days, film screenings of the Egyptian women filmmakers took place in the Bibliotheca's auditorium.

Check the programme for all the remaining days here.
