Opening the event will be none other than founder Isam Uraiqat, who created the Onion-style newspaper in 2013 with a group of like-minded, light-hearted creatives and journalists using poignant satirical commentary laced with dark humour to comment on news and state of affairs in the Middle East.
Renowned Palestinian musician جوان صفدي jowan safadi and his band will be performing songs from his new album as well as classics in a wide range of styles under his unique banner of ‘Free Arabic Rock’.
Egyptian comedian Bassem Youssef, dubbed the Jon Stewart of the Arab world, will also be in attendance, making a sharp 15 minute appearance to tickle our funny bones.
