Dance under a thousand stars at Morocco’s Oasis Festival

Morocco has always been known for its blissfuly warm climate, exotic tagines, elaborate architecture and fabulously passionate people.

Marrakech in particular is famed for its luxury pool parties, glamorous restaurants, candlelit bars and fun-filled clubs, where night owls party till the early hours before grabbing a pipping hot mint tea on route to their riads.

Recently, Morocco has been hailed as the next best festival hosting destination, attracting pleasure seeking revellers from across the globe, who all flock in search of fervent dancing in balmy temperatures under the sun and stars.

Morocco’s renowned Oasis Festival is by far the festival on everybody’s lips. For the third thrilling time this September, this inimitable event returns to The Source – a luxury resort in Marrakech.

Taking place from 15th-17th September, a plethora of talented acts including Maceo Plex, Marcel Dettmann, Moodymann, KiNK, Karenn, Charlotte de Witte, Jeremy Underground, Chloé and more will all perform to a heaving crowd against the mesmerising backdrop of the scenic Atlas Mountains.

We’re excited to shake our booties to the heady sounds of Maceo Plex – a co-headliner of Oasis 2017. This world class DJ has boasted residences at famous Ibiza club nights such as Circoloco, ENTER. and HYTE, also launching his own season-long residency ‘Mosaic By Maceo’ at Pacha in 2016 – proving to be one of the most popular nights on the island.

Berlin-dwelling techno guru Marcel Dettmann is also set to ignite the crowd when he makes his very first festival debut at this fierce Moroccan festival. Always in demand and never failing to deliver quality tunes to sell-out crowds, Dettmann has made a name for himself as an international ambassador for the Berlin techno scene, spreading his DJ magic to exclusive clubs all across the globe.

The Bulgarian dance music maverick KiNK, will also be showcasing his enigmatic musical talents at the main stage of this sultry Moroccan festival this September – so get ready to gyrate those hips to his uplifting beats. Karenn, the evocative duo of Blawan and Pariah, will also be emanating their raw techno sounds in this outstanding North African festival.

Detroit DJ and producer Moodymann  will also be taking control of the turntables at Oasis 2017 with a heady selection of soulful house and techno tracks as well as Mike Servito, resident at the infamous Brooklyn techno night The Bunker, French DJ and producer Chloé, eclectic selector Auntie Flo and My Love Is Underground founder Jeremy Underground.

Dutch DJ Young Marco, up and coming Belgian artist Charlotte de Witte, Worldwide FM host and Boiler Room co-founder Thris Tian and Polyswitch will also make up the impressive line up of international musical talent at this beloved music festival.
