Carl Cox, one of the most celebrated names in dance music, has announced that he will be performing a headline set at Egypt's Great Pyramid of Giza. 

The epic event will see Cox - along with support acts Philipp Straub and Gawdat - play an extended set against the backdrop of the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World on May 19.

Posting the news on Instagram, Cox wrote: “MAY 19th, 2023. EGYPT. THE GREAT PYRAMIDS OF GIZA. OH YES!!!!”

Cox is no stranger to playing at iconic locations, having performed at some of the world's most famous clubs and festivals over the course of his career. However, this is set to be one of his most unique and special performances yet.

The event has already generated a huge amount of excitement amongst fans, who are eagerly anticipating the chance to see one of the world's greatest DJs play from the unique location, which has previously seen performances from artists like Jean-Michel Jarre, Black Eyed Peas, Shakira and Mariah Carey.

Earlybird tickets for the once-in-a-lifetime gig start at 3000 EGP (around $145 AUD) and 5000 EGP for VIP tix (around $240 AUD).

The news comes following Cox releasing his first full-length studio album in over a decade, Electronic Generations, which he revealed was mostly created in an hour and a half.

“It installed my faith into me making music again, because for so long people were, like, 'Carl's a great DJ. He's got a really good ear for signing music, but as a producer, no, not really. Not quite there. Blah, Blah, Blah,'” he told MixMag.

He added that he’s now at a point in his career where he hopes to take on more challenges.

“I'm making a conscious effort to now turn a corner, to now take another road to what excites me or what I'm challenged by,” Cox said, adding, “I think you have to fly by the seat of your pants sometimes.”
