Beauty of El Moez Str.
A global festival attended by thousands of audiences. Because it is completely free-of-charge, the festival imposes the first arriving - first entry way because the capacity of the place is suitable for only about 4,000 individuals.
The festival is a great way to spend some quality time with the family and is completely free of charge. Make sure you don't miss it!
