Desert Dance Festival 2019
10 Oct 2019—13 Oct 2019
Coral Resort Nuweiba Nuweiba St., Nuweiba`, Janub Sina', Egypt, 46625
It's the time again that we call out to gather with our friends and families for another magical psychedelic Sinai experience. Meanwhile we are celebrating the 8th year of the festival and we are proud that all of you still believe in us and together we can create this amazing experience every time again. Its been some rough times behind us all on this path, just as life is for each individually as well. But we have not stopped growing and nurishing this seed, that now spread its roots deeper and deeper into the desert ground of Egypt... We have witnessed how a beautiful family came together and developed its own dynamics and tradition through celebrating together in peace and harmony.
Just this simple fact is driving us every year again to work as hard as we can and bring you a unique program, exceptional music and many new faces to get to know to. We have seen bonds that get created, friendships evolve and love spread among us all. Let us open our hearts and together celebrate our connection with a blast on the beach of the Red Sea!
We could have not come here without you all. In fact we believe that only by coming together this energy is possible...through our compassion and unity we experience how we grow, achieve our goals and develop new ideas. So with this in mind, remember that anything is possible if we work together and create a global intelligence that will break all boundaries to move on into a safe, peaceful and balanced world.
The theme for 2019: "Raising Vibrations"

IMPORTANT: The standard Egyptian entry Visa costs 25$ and needs to be purchased before Passport control at the arrival airport (for example arrivals in Cairo). The Sinai peninsula though has a FREE 14-day Visa valid only for Sinai (you can not visit the Pyramids with it) that you get at the normal Passport control upon arrival.

BY PLANE ► The nearest airport is Sharm el Sheikh International where planes from Europe, Middle East or domestic flights can land. You can continue from here with a taxi to the public bus station or a private minibus (10 seats, car sharing recommended!). From Sharm the road goes north through the mountain desert. One hour drive and you will reach the checkpoint of Dahab where the road divides and leads to Nuwaibaa. After another 1,5hs the road will lead along the coastline, passing the port of Nuweibaa. Just after the port you will find the entrance of Coral Resort and the festival door.
CAIRO BY CAR ► Take the Suez Road from Cairo to Suez. After crossing the tunnel (heavy checkpoint!) you take the south route along the westcoast of Sinai to Ras Mohammed and Sharm el Sheikh. Next you leave Sharm and pass Dahab on the way north to Nuweibaa. Once arrived follow the instructions and you will find DD after a short drive next to the industrial port!
BOAT ► There is the advantage that the port of Nuweibaa has a daily ferry travelling between there and Aqaba (Jordan). If you decide for this option be very generous in your time plan and arrive at departure port few hours earlier than scheduled. The Visa is given directly at arrival in Nuweibaa port. Another ferry travels between Aqaba and Taba Heights (North of DD). It's worth to check the website of the ferry companies (2 dif. Ones) for changes in schedule and fees (75$ one-way or 100$ return).
BUS ► There are many busses every day between most mayor cities and tourist areas. The two main companies (GoBus + EastDelta) have different prices and schedules. You can reach Nuweibaa either with the Taba bus or from Cairo and Sharm el Sheikh via Dahab.

Garbage: The philosophy of Desert Dance Festival is to minimize the waste production and use of plastic to encourage and demonstrate a harmonious "raving" in the middle of beautiful nature.
You, the guest, are a key figure in this plan: Please use the garbage bins, don't throw anything that doesn't belong to the local nature ANYWHERE! There will be many bins, still we can't be everywhere at the same time: Please remind others, let the crew know if there are full bins and help us by caring for the magical place with the same passion that we dance on the sand during this weekend :)
Security: The entrance area and a few other spots are secured by a good team that wants to ensure the calm and safe way that we love on our parties so much. If you have any concerns, problems or see something that needs our attention: Contact the security for help anytime!
First Aid: We have members of our staff that are trained and skilled to deal with a big variety of emergencies. Contact someone at door, bar or the HQ area and they will be alerted.
Coral Reef: We put signs up, we point at accidents where people get injured while walking on the reef table, we can observe how in many areas around the world the coral reefs are dying. DON'T WALK ON THE REEF / DON'T DISTURB THE ECOSYSTEM!
For questions or comments please write us on our Facebook page or send a mail to email@example.com!
Orga: The Desert Dance Festival is organised by friends, artists, different crews and many others!
COME IN PEACE – SALAM AL'AIKUM!
