SebCat will be accompanied by Israelian dj/producer Gal Kadan, who is specialised in music from the Levant (Libanon, Israel, Palestine, Syria & Jordan) and also by Spanish Brussels DJ’s El Gato Callejero and I Am Sardina, who will spin Iberian sounds from rumba Catalana to flamenco & mestizo + live percussion.

01:00 > 02:30 ORCHESTRE ROUANY (MA/FR – live)
This French-Moroccan five piece band around singer/violin player Younes Rouany is a hard hitting chaabi dance machine. Their sound is based on oriental synths, darbouka, bendir, violin and electronic drums.
02:30 > 04:00 CAIRO LIBERATION FRONT (NL)
This Dutch dj duo has brought ‘electro chaabi’, the new electronic dance music from the Cairo hoods, to Europe and the rest of the world. It’s tough bass music from the rougher neighbourhoods, made by young producers on computers and based on auto-tuned vocals and frenetic oriental rhythms drenched in dancehall and rave sounds. You will sweat, as if you were on an alcohol free wedding party, high on sugar, hash and loud music!
04:00 > 05:00 REBEL UP! dj’s (BE)
Arabic roughness to end the night with….
