Mashrou' Leila
Saturday August 12

Mashrou' Leila is a five-strong indie band based in Beirut. Born out of a late night / early morning jam session at the American University of Beirut, Mashrou' Leila (whose name roughly translates to OvernightProject) fill their live performances with some of the most bitter-sweet ballads and raucous anthems you’re likely to hear.
Their rousing, sensual electro-pop anthems about political freedoms, LGBT rights, race, religion and modern Arabic identity have challenged the status quo of the Middle-Eastern pop industry. Mashrou’ Leila have won fans worldwide, and were the first Middle-Eastern artists on the cover of Rolling Stone.
