THE OASIS FESTIVAL
Calling all techno-junkies; if you’re planning ahead and looking for somewhere a little further than Europe, consider booking yourself in to Morocco’s intimate destination music festival. Oasis lands in Marrakech from the 15-17 September and promises only the best in underground electronic music talent, with surroundings to match.
Being held at luxury hotel and wellness refuge The Source, you’ll become accustomed to laid-back vibes, pristine features and one hell of a beautiful backdrop. Located only seven miles from central Marrakech, the open-air arena makes for perfect festival destination.
The festival’s line-up looks incredible; you’ll witness talent from names including Jeremy Underground, Henrik Schwarz, Daniel Avery, Auntie Flo, Kornel Kovacs, Nicholas Jaar, Thris Tian and Young Marco – and the list doesn’t end there. Thursday’s Opening Party has a life of its own; expect Karmon, Solomon, My Favourite Robot, Kenny Glasgow and Amine K.
The weekend wouldn’t be complete without a few festival extras. Taking a break from the rave, you can visit the champagne bar for bubbly and sweet treats, and satisfy your appetite with visit round the eclectic mix of food vendors, including Beats Burger, Cafe Des Epices, Monsieur Brochette and Corto Juice Bar.
Tying in the ancient local traditions, you’ll also have the chance to get yourself a Henna tattoo using only the finest dye and most delicate, stunning designs. Jump in the pool for a swim of course, and take part in one of the many yoga classes that will also be on offer across the weekend. Could you ask for more from a festival getaway?
