Five Islands Festival is bringing two days of non-stop music, art, and camping to Mzaar Ski Resort, nestled in the mountains of Lebanon about 45 minutes from Beirut. During August 10 and 11, the event site will be flush with decorative stages, art installations, and yummy food vendors at 1300 meters of elevation.

The lineup offers an all-star cast of more than 60 local and international artists, bringing their music to four uniquely designed stages with island themes - Solar, Native, Paradise, and Soul. A handful of stand-outs on the bill include: Satori & The Band From Space, Henrik Schwarz [Live], Oliver Huntemann, and Serge Devant.

Five Islands - the first electronic music festival in the Middle East

The Grand Factory & Mzaar Ski Resort, the production teams leading the event, are eager to spearhead a movement for world-class productions in the Middle East. "We’ll be hosting the Middle East’s first music festival in the scale that we’re planning. While others festivals have taken place (here) before, our promise is to replicate the scale and immersive experience offered from the world’s best music festivals to a local audience."

More information and tickets can be found on the event page here.
