Halloween Guide 2015

All Hallows' Eve is nearly upon us so here is your ultimate guide to all things eerie and epic to ensure you have a wickedly good time.

Halloween is the only time you can be Batman. And you should always want to be Batman. But also, candy, and more costumes, and parties and and more candy.

Here's our roundup of all things Halloween happening around our fair nation. Something wicked this way comes... 
Thursday 29th

Witchcraft Vol. 2 @ Omar Khayyam Boat
DJ Medoz  is known as Egypt’s best urban eclectic DJ. Long before the term eclectic even existed, Medoz was already spinning a unique mix of house, hip-hop and R&B Music. A career that originated at the legendary Kuala Lumpur Club Zouk rapidly developed into a trendsetting endeavour at parties and festivals throughout the world. 
As a result of the increasing attention for Urban, DJ Medoz’ style is now more popular than ever. His gigs vary from residencies at leading club nights such as Swagga, Hits Mania and Jam of the prestigious Pacha Sharm El Sheikh to the hottest Urban nights and festivals in the whole of Egypt. Add to that the countless performances abroad, and DJ Medoz is a name to reckon with. Spinning the decks will also be DJs Aguizi & Fahim (winners of student DJ 2013). The choice of DJs was mainly based on changing the vibe of the 'khabooti' and mainstreamed style of music that has been recently heard all around Egypt's clubs. 

Alive @ The Temple Egypt
Floating nightspot The Temple has certainly gained notoriety on Cairo's nocturnal scene and they're upping the ante this Halloween with not one, but two ghoulish nights. Tonight, toss on your most creative (read: sluttiest) costume and make your way over for part one of their Halloween bashes: Alive. The night will come alive with ghosts and ghouls and booze and beats. DJ Youseff K will be coming in from Beirut to blow your mind with his dance-inducing commercial tracks. 

Halloween & Toktok Party
Boom events presents Halloween & Toktok party. Join the party and have a break from midterms, studying, or even your Job.
All you need to do is go dressed up and energetic for the night. The schedule consists of DJ Feedo himself, Egypt's number one for Hip Hop and R&B, and DJ Carlos (Tabla Sokhna, Tabla Sahel, Graffiti, Amici). Then there will be a TokTok show with shaaby songs, fireworks and best costume competition.
