Morocco’s Oasis Festival Announces First Names For 2016 Edition

Oasis, coming off a highly successful inaugural edition, has now unveiled the first acts lined up for 2016.

Taking place from 16-18 September 2016 at Morocco’s luxurious Fellah Hotel, just a short distance from the heart of vibrant Marrakech, Oasis is the perfect fusion of festival and holiday. Balmy, sun-kissed days and star-lit nights are soundtracked by the finest house, techno, disco and electronica artists across two main stages, with ample time for guests to relax and unwind in the idyllic surroundings of the Fellah, explore the city’s bustling medina or simply take in the spectacular views of the nearby Atlas Mountains.

The atmospheric Desert Oasis and Bamboo Arena stages will also play host to Italian duo Tale Of Us, Chicago’s The Black Madonna and Amsterdam resident and rising star Hunee, along with Belfast Boys Bicep and Permanent Vacation mainstay Mano le Tough. With Dusky, Jennifer Cardini and Objekt will also be on hand with lots more acts still to be announced.

Aside from the extensive music programme there is much to explore on-site, with inviting teal-blue stage-side pools, daily yoga, massage and wellness activities and deliciously tasty authentic local street food, not to mention a souk, henna body art and more. With the centre of Marrakech just 10 minutes from the festival it’s also the perfect opportunity to explore the city’s rich Berber, Arabic and Moorish culture, pink-hued historic buildings, lively souks, indulgent Hammams and vast desert landscapes.
