Morocco is stepping up its electronic game with the announcement of Oasis. Taking place from 11-13 September 2015, Oasis will be held at the spectacular Fellah Hotel about ten miles from the center of Marrakech. The first wave of acts have been revealed, with headline guests including dance music pioneer DJ Harvey, Innervisions’ Âme, and an exclusive B2B set from Guy Gerber and Matthew Dear.
In addition to the impressive artist lineup, Oasis will also deliver a range of non-music delights to complete the festival, including daily yoga and wellness activities, local street food, market vendors, henna artists, and more.
Oasis founder and festival director Marjana Jaidi is enthusiastic about the impact Oasis could have on the Moroccan electronic music scene.
Big DJs stop in Morocco occasionally and there’s a growing underground scene, led by music collectives like Moroko Loko and Runtomorrow, but there’s never been an electronic event of this size or caliber. I never realized there was such a thirst for this type of event or music until we announced the festival–the response has been incredible.
