Carl Cox Announces Rare Performance at Egypt’s Great Pyramids of Giza
Techno music will reverberate through the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World during Cox's pie-in-the-sky performance at the Great Pyramids.
Techno icon Carl Cox is revered for taking the genre to places it's never been, but he's outdone himself this time.
The pioneering DJ and producer has announced a rare headlining show at Egypt's Great Pyramids of Giza, the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
Just like Cox's timeless techno tracks, the Great Pyramids of Giza were built to last an eternity. The tombs were erected some 4,500 years ago with an estimated 2.3 million stone blocks, each of which weigh up to 15 tons, per National Geographic. If there were ever a structure to withstand Cox's blood-pumping brand of electronic music, it's the Pyramids.

Cox in 2022 released his scintillating Electronic Generations LP, which led to his being named one of EDM.com's best music producers of the year. His first full-length album in over a decade, the record effectively launched a new chapter in the legendary producer's career.
"I've always wanted to go out as a live entity, outside of DJing," Cox told us in a sweeping interview at the time. "I’m not DJ Carl Cox anymore. I'm Carl Cox, the artist. And this album is only the beginning of what I do next."
Scheduled for May 29th, Cox's pie-in-the-sky performance at the Pyramids is being produced by Kord, Analog Agency, Egyptian real estate developer Ora and the electronic music brand P+US. You can purchase tickets here.
