NRJ Music Tour
For my younger readers, the NRJ Music Tour is an annual summer staple. On the lineup this year are the likes of Magic System, India, Graham Candy, Conor Maynard and many others. It’s under-18s friendly, and tickets are starting $50 with a split section for underage peeps.
Check out the event details here.
Future Shorts at Minus 5
The event page describes this as “the world’s largest pop-up film festival of its kind celebrates the best and most innovative short films, connecting global stories with global audiences”. I’m a movie buff, and love to see these independent kind of shorts. So, starting 9 PM, you might wanna check it out if you’re a fan of motion pictures too. You get to vote for your favorite, and it gets awarded the “Audience Choice Award” too!
Fuck Monday. Party on Friday at The Grand Factory
It’s gonna be Jade vs DJette with a few guests too. It’s at Beirut’s hottest new venue in Karantina: The Grand Facotry, on the rooftop of a big industrial complex overlooking the Beirut Port. It’s supposed to have the awesomeness of Cotton Candy parties, which I’ve personally missed loads!
So, check it out here.
Picnic in Horsh Beirut!
Having access to public green spaces is our right, and the continued shuttering up of the largest one: Horsh Beirut, is unacceptable. That’s why, on Saturday, from 3:00 till 6:00PM, join us in taking a walk and spending some quality time in Beirut’s green heart. Meet up at the main entrance, near Baba Sweets at 3:00PM sharp!
Group Art Exhibition at IXSIR Winery
If you haven’t been to the award-winning, breathtakingly designed Ixsir winery which is around 10 minutes above where Pierre and Friends is. Bacchanalia features four Lebanese artists, two of which are good friends of mine! Yazan and Laudi!
So, if you’re into great works of art, displayed in an awesome location, with great wine at hand, then you can’t miss this. The exhibition runs till September 28, and it opens this Friday!
Mother Mantra Followed by Gunnar Stiller at The Garten
Then, it’s Gunnar Stiller! Last year was absolutely epic, and I look forward to seeing this super energetic man back on the decks at The Garten! Details here.
The BASEMENT Reunion at The Grand Factory
I grew up in The Basement and my musical taste was refined by Jade and Diamond Setter in that iconic underground club with the fancy chandeliers and mirrors. It’s always a special experience when a reunion goes down, so, looking forward!
