It’s also revealed today that the previously announced DJ Harvey is set to perform an extended 4-hour set at the festival, giving the cult-favourite DJ ample opportunity to delve deep into his bulging record bag of disco, house and beautifully obscure dancefloor weapons. The exotic Moroccan location will also play host to acts including Âme, Amine K, Axel Boman, BLOND:ISH, Danny Daze, DJ Tennis, Derrick Carter, Ellen Allien, Gerd Janson and Will Saul, along with exclusive back-to-back sessions, including Guy Gerber B2B Matthew Dear and Cassy B2B tINI.
Oasis also invites guests to experience some Moroccan culture on-site with their extensive lifestyle programme, featuring yoga, live street art, massage and wellness activities along with authentic local street food, souk and henna body art. The Secret Souk will bring their own version of the Marrakech souks directly to the festival site, showcasing an array of handcrafted items “made in Morocco” such as textiles, leather goods, homewares, antiques, clothing and accessories. The Souk will also include an authentic Moroccan tea service at Café Des Épices, a champagne bar, henna artists and live painting by Yann Chatelin. Celebrated Marrakech restaurant Nomad will set up a pop-up restaurant on-site at the Fellah. Since opening in November, the chic rooftop restaurant and its modern Moroccan cuisine has become a firm favourite with local foodies and international guests. The pop-up restaurant will feature classic Moroccan dishes with Nomad’s signature eclectic twist. Other on-site food vendors include the Touco Café, serving traditional Moroccan tagines and mint tea, Oriental Legend ice cream and Bo’Ju fresh, natural, cold-pressed juices.
Guests at the 3-day event will also be able to soak up the sun, take a refreshing dip in the pool and revel in the spectacular views of the nearby Atlas Mountains, whilst enjoying the ultimate soundtrack of house, techno, disco and electronica.
