Sandbox Festival is an electronic music festival held in the Egyptian coastal resort of El Gouna. Situated just to the north of Hurghada, the festival's stunning location on the beautiful Red Sea coast offers a unique festival experience.
Musically, the lineup unites established DJs, producers and live performers from the vibrant underground of electronic music with a host of smaller, up-and-coming local acts.
In its first few years, the festival has hosted the likes of Dixon, Âme, Nic Faniciulli and Mike Servito, and even more celebrated acts are set to add their names to that list in 2018.
With the enticing waters of the Red Sea literally a stone's throw from the festival site on glorious golden sands, there's ample opportunity to kick back and enjoy the Egyptian sun before the partying begins.
EL Gouna – "The Lagoon" – is a tourist resort located on Egypt's western coast, in the Red Sea Riviera. It is famous as a location for scuba diving, snorkelling, windsurfing and other watersports.
Hurghada International Airport is just under 25 miles from El Gouna. A taxi should take around 35 minutes and cost around £3.
