About Beirut & Beyond

Dedicated to promoting the Arab region’s independent music with emphasis on strong artistic merit, Beirut & Beyond was founded in 2013, in partnership with Oslo World Music Festival, and quickly succeeded in positioning itself as a key player on the map of regional festivals and showcases.

As a platform for meetings, showcases and exchange, Beirut & Beyond encourages networking and collaboration. It furthermore aims to offer solutions to the urgent needs of the young Arab independent music scene, such as the necessity to provide outlets for its bustling artistic productions.

Beirut & Beyond welcomes a different regional artist every year as guest curator of the festival. BBIMF 2017 is curated by Maurice Louca (Egypt) and will take place in Beirut from Thursday 7 to Sunday 10 December 2017.
